(Redirected to cI protein article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

cI protein ("CI", not "CL"), also known as the lambda repressor, is the sole protein expressed in the lysogenic state of Lambda phage. cI turns off transcription at the phage's L and R promoters as well as any other invading lambda phages into the host cell. It is a transcription factor and contains the common helix-turn-helix DNA binding domain.
