Is there a way for a eukaryotic cell to not produce a certain protein?

Im learning about epigenetics in my Biology class, and we learned about how the repressor is the DNA binding protein that latches on the operator and does not allow that section of the gene to be transcribed, and in the end, not having that gene expressed phenotypically. I just wanted to know if, within the eukaryotic cell, is it possible to alter the cell so that the production and synthesis of the repressor protein is terminated.
