What would happen if a cell replicates once in the presence of this radioactive base? a. and fragile bone structure typically begin during infancy. and the children typically do not live through their teenage years. coli bacteria to which radioactive thymine has been added. circulatory trouble. When the rate of repair lags behind the rate of mutation. Neither of the two daughter cells would be radioactive. they found the DNA had shorter ________ than those of healthy individuals. but not the other. b.

which is made up of only four different bases. The figure here shows the results of the electrophoresis run. Which of the following choices correctly describes the relationship between the fragment size of DNA in the bands (A-E)? A. All of the above 14 Suppose a piece of DNA is digested with two different restriction enzymes in three reactions. e. Having extra digits is a dominant trait. but not of tRNA or rRNA in eukaryotic organisms. C) RNA splicing can be catalyzed by tRNA. b. 17 Death cap mushrooms produce a substance called alpha-amanitin. DNA molecules form codons of three bases that code for amino acids. A+B=D 15 A man has extra digits (six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot).13 How can DNA. Exons are cut out before mRNA leaves the nucleus. His wife and their daughter have a normal number of digits. The couple's second child has extra digits. but not RNA polymerase II or III B) RNA polymerase III. but not RNA polymerase I and II C) the action of one or more basic transcription factors D) the action of RNA polymerase II. B=D+E D. C=A+D E. B=D+A C. A) the action of RNA polymerase I. Reactions 1 and 2 contain only a single enzyme. DNA molecules are extremely long. c. D) A primary transcript is often much shorter than the final RNA molecule that leaves the nucleus. This is possible because alpha-amanitin efficiently interferes with _____. Alpha-amanitin efficiently blocks synthesis of mRNA. The reactions are loaded into wells of an electrophoresis gel. Wells #1 and #2 receive the reactions with single enzymes while well #3 gets the reaction with both enzymes. d. encode the information necessary to specify the workings of an entire organism? a. but not RNA polymerase I or III . The genetic code is redundant but not ambiguous. the third reaction receives both enzymes. What is the probability that their next (third) child will have extra digits?
