Problem 10: Phenotype of cells diploid for lac I gene
An E. coli strain that is lac I is conjugated with E. coli cells carrying an F' plasmid with the PI lac I DNA sequence on the episome. How would the expression of the lac Z be regulated in the resulting cells that are diploid and heterozygous for the lac I gene (lac I on episome and lac I on the bacterial chromosome)?
