  • Interesting argicle on the results of transformation. Nick
  • The sum total of information carried by a cell, consists of chromosomes and extra chromosomal information Chromosome: The large DNA molecule of a bacterial cell that contains all the information/plans for the cell. Gene: a segment of DNA and its sequence of nucleotides that codes for a functional product, usually but not always a protein. Base pair: In the double helix structure each rung of this twisted latter is made of 2 nucleotides either AT or GC, These complementary base pairs make the replication of DNA possible. Each strand serves as a template for the other strand. Genetic code: the linear sequence of nucleotides that codes for specific RNA’s and proteins. For proteins each set of 3 nucleotides codes for a specific amino acid within the protein. Genotype: the genetic composition of an organism, its entire complement of DNA. Phenotype: the expression of an organisms genes: the protein of the cell and the properties they confer on the organism.
  • Polymer: a molecule consisting of a sequence of similar molecules, or monomers. Monomer: One of something, molecules of similar structure that are combined together to make a polymer. Polymers of life are: Proteins, Nucleic acids, Carbohydrates and lipids Why use polymers? The use of polymers allows cells to create incredibly complex molecules with complex functions with out having to create a multitude of different materials. Like the English language that is made up of about 26 sounds (Yes I know there are more). But the amount of information that is contained in our language and our communication is generated by those 26 sound.
  • A,G,T,C 20 amino acids make up the proteins
  • Replication: DNA Polymerase: DNA: DNA Transcription: RNA polymerase: DNA: RNA Translation: Ribosome's and various: RNA: Protein Reverse transcription: reverse transcriptase: RNA: DNA
  • What is sex and why is it important? Transformation: naked DNA is transferred between cells. Conjugation: F+ and f- cells. Transduction: phage used to move DNA about. Plasmids and Transposes.

  • Genetic Map of the Chromosome of E. coli Figure 8.1b
  • The Flow of Genetic Information Figure 8.2
  • DNA Replication
    • The double strand of DNA is separated.
    • DNA polymerase reads the DNA strand and creates another.
    • The newly synthesized DNA contains an old strand and a new strand.
    • The two new strands are then separated into the two new daughter cells.
  • Semiconservative Replication Figure 8.3a
  • DNA Synthesis Figure 8.4
  • DNA Synthesis
    • DNA is copied by DNA polymerase
      • In the 5'  3' direction
      • Initiated by an RNA primer
      • Leading strand is synthesized continuously
      • Lagging strand is synthesized discontinuously
      • Okazaki fragments
      • RNA primers are removed and Okazaki fragments joined by a DNA polymerase and DNA ligase
  • Transcription
    • A sequence of DNA is relaxed and opened up.
    • RNA polymerase synthesizes a strand of RNA
    • RNA uses ACGU
    • Starting point is a promoter
  • Transcription Figure 8.7
  • The Process of Transcription Figure 8.7
  • Translation
    • mRNA associates with ribosome's (rRNA and protein)
    • 3-base segments of mRNA specify amino acids and are called codons.
    • Genetic code: relationship among nucleotide sequence and corresponding DNA sequence.
  • Degenerate: Most amino acids are code for by more than one codon.
    • 64 codons
    • 3 are nonsense
    • Start codon Aug is for methionine.
    • See the codon sequence.

  • Info
    • From information storage to reality.
    • What determines what info is used
    • What determines how information is moved about.
  • Regulation
    • Constitutive genes are expressed at a fixed rate
    • Other genes are expressed only as needed
      • Repressible genes
      • Inducible genes
