    Notes: Summary We have constructed and tested three lac diploid strains in an attempt to show whether operator-constitutive mutations relieve catabolite repression of the lac operon. Each of these carries a different operator mutation on the chromosome, and all three have the genotype I+P+OcZ+Y-polar/F′lac I+P+O+ZdelY+A+. When these strains were grown in medium containing glucose plus gluconate, synthesis of β-galactosidase (directed by a gene cis to a mutant operator) and of thiogalactoside transacetylase (directed by a gene cis to an intact operator) suffered equal catabolite repression. We conclude that the operator-constitutive mutations have no effect on catabolite repression. Since it has been shown in analogous experiments that all promoter mutations tested do alleviate catabolite repression, these results are consistent with the view that the operator and promoter are functionally distinct.
