The lambda cl repressor and the P22 c2 repressor contain two structural domains. In both proteins, the N-terminal domains mediate operator recognition and positive control of transcription, and the C-terminal domains mediate subunit oligomerization and recognition of the recA. protein. In some cases, structural, biochemical, and genetic studies implicate particular repressor side chains in these processes.
