Plot enzyme activity vs enzyme concentration (a, b, c) for each treatment. The graph should include a title, labeled axes, and labeled data lines.1. Under what conditions is the LacZ gene expressed? Is there any sign of activation or repression? Be sure to refer to your results when discussing your answer. The LacZ gene is expressed when lactose is present and lac operon is started. Repression occurs as the volume decreases, while activation happens when the volume increases. Allolactose binds to the protein, which activates it.2. Examine your data for Lab Activity 2. Describe the data and your interpretation of what you see.Based on the data from Lab Activity 2, sugar does have an interaction with the assay. The allolactose found in E.Coli binds to the protein instead of the ONPG, which decreases the activity rate. The lac operon deactivates in the presence of glucose, which causes the repression. This can be seen in table 4, 3Name: Chloe EzellGroup: 2which shows the initial activation, then repression due to the sugars, then slight increase in activity once the sugar has been
