Describe - Gene Alteration Describe - Gene Alteration Presentation Transcript

  • Describe: gene alteration b.stev
  • chromosomes may alter a b n o r m a l ly - this is said to be a: mutation > It causes miscoded mRNA mRNA codes for proteins that gives functions to the bacteria’s processes, thus alteration to this changes how the bacteria can operate correctly some have little effect/ others, contained within codons that would aid survival of the bacteria: - defence toxin production against competition - digestion enzyme change to the environment OR various purposes that effects their abilities (Campbell N. A, Reece J. B, 2005)
  • A U G A A G U U U G G U U A A Met Lys Phe Gly STOP U instead of a C Gly CODONS : GGU GGC GGA GGG
  • MISSENSE MUTATION: makes an amino acid, though the specific amino acid that was wanted within the sequence of the mRNA has changed A U G A A G U U U A G U U A A Met Lys Phe Ser STOP A instead of a G change in the amino acid
  • NONSENSE MUTATION : codon changes to the codes for a STOP codon Results: a shorter protein is made that is usually non-functional to the bacteria A U G U A G U U U G G U U A A Met STOP U instead of A (Campbell N. A, Reece J. B, 2005)
  • HAS a disastrous effect as it causes the sequence to become,’ out of line ,’ & as such results in extensive missense mutations RESULTS: proteins that are probably non-functional and/ or prematurely terminate in sequence INSERTION/ DELETION OF PAIRS
  • A U G A A G U U U G G U U A A Met Lys Phe Gly STOP A G INTENDED SEQUENCE insertion
  • mutagens UV light - causes thymine dimers in chemical bonding: DNA RESULTS: inability to insert correct bases when transcribed in process to the mRNA NOTE: this is how UV light can be used to kill bacteria Chemical OR Physical agent that causes a mutation (Pommerville J.C, 2004)
  • A C A A C C T G T T G G normal DNA A C A A C C T G T T G G abnormal DNA UV light: chemical bonding change
  • Nitrous acid THE [ A ]: adenine base ; in DNA converts into a hypoxanthine molecule(s) RESULTS: no existance of an, [ A - T ] pair instead; [ hypoxantine& C ] pair
    • entire purpose is thereafter altered
    • CHEMICAL structure is similar
    • resembles the bases of DNA
    Replaces the, [ T ]: thymine base ; DNA AGAIN – entire purpose is then altered Base analog ie: chemical, 5-bromouracil
  • other chemicals effect DNA in some way ie: benzopyrene (in soot) aflatoxin heavy smoke Different effects (Pommerville J.C, 2004)
