Answer to relevant QuestionsExplain how transposable elements promote the genome evolution of Bacteria. Which genomes are larger, those of chloroplasts or those of mitochondria? Describe one unusual feature each for the chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes. Describe the proteins produced when cells of Escherichia coli experience a heat shock. Of what value are they to the cell? Describe the mechanism by which cAMP receptor protein (CRP), the regulatory protein for catabolite repression, functions. Use the lactose operon as an example.
