The lactose repressor protein may bind DNA in two possible configurations: a specific one, if the DNA sequence corresponds to a binding site, and a non-specific one otherwise. To find its target sequences, the lactose repressor first binds non-specifically to DNA, and subsequently, it rapidly searches for a binding site. Atomic structures of non-specific and specific complexes are available from crystallographic and nuclear magnetic resonance experiments. However, what remains unknown is a de...Expand abstract
