In 1965 Jacques Monod and François Jacob were awarded the Nobel prize for discovering that there are regulator genes that control the activity of other genes. They discovered this by investigating the utilization of energy sources, such as glucose, in E. coli. E. coli need glucose to live and their most common source of glucose is lactose. When lactose is present, E. coli secrete betagalactosidase enzymes that break down lactose into glucose. Betagalactosidase is secreted only when lactose is… Expand
