In eukaryotes, a regulon is defined as a group of non-contiguous genes (transcriptional units) that are coordinately controlled by a single regulatory gene – one gene to rule them all.

In bacteria, regulons comprise several operons, and are global regulatory systems that participate in pleiotropic regulatory domains.
