MeSH Heading
Repressor Proteins
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
Scope Note
Proteins which maintain the transcriptional quiescence of specific GENES or OPERONS. Classical repressor proteins are DNA-binding proteins that are normally bound to the OPERATOR REGION of an operon, or the ENHANCER SEQUENCES of a gene until a signal occurs that causes their release.
