    because all genes are in the same operon they will be translated/transcripted at the same time at the same quantity.. If you translate one you translate all of them, like that making sure you have equivalent amounts of the products

    An operator is a segment of DNA that a regulatory protein binds to. It is classically defined in the lac operon as a segment between the promoter and the genes of the operon. A repressor or activator can bind to an operator.
