The lac Operon: An Inducible Operon. 3. 0000032306 00000 n The Lac Operon Regulation of the Lac Operon The activity of the lac operon is controlled by two different regulatory proteins. The tryptophan (trp) operon contains five structural genes encoding enzymes for tryptophan biosynthesis with an upstream trp promoter (Ptrp) and trp operator sequence (Otrp). �fB�~�$��(h�[hZ��.
