Additional Information
In the absence of arsenite, the ArsR repressor binds to its DNA binding site  and prevents expression of downstream genes. When arsenite enters the cell, binds the ArsR repressor leading to a conformational change which results in the dissociation of the ArsR protein from its binding site. Subsequently, the expression of downstream genes is promoted.
