DNA replication

7 U1 The replication of DNA is semi-conservative and depends on complementary base pairing. DNA is semi-conservative ○ 1 strand old ○ 1 strand new ● Original used as a “template” for the 2 new strands ○ Complementary base pairing ■ A-T ■ C-G .Semi-Conservative Replication 2. ● Post replication.

coli in 15N then transfer to 14 N Measured density after several generations.Meselson and Stahl 15 N DNA vs.Evidence for Semi-Conservative Replication 2. Even if it seems right. 14N DNA Caesium chloride and a centrifuge Multiple generations of E.7 NOS1 Obtaining evidence for scientific theories: Meselson and Stahl obtained evidence for the semi-conservative replication of DNA. we need to back up theories! 1958 . HUH?!? .

Pause to Analyze 2.7 S2 Analysis of Meselson and Stahl’s results to obtain support for the theory of semi-conservative replication of DNA.113 -114 in your book (see answer key if we don’t get to it in class!) . p.

Helicase (everyone’s fave enzyme) 2. Step #1 Twisty double-helix in your way? Here comes helicase! Enzyme that uses ATP to unwind DNA by breaking Hbonds Actually a protein complex Looks like a donut (yum) Untwist AND unzip DNA REPLICATION ! .7 U2 Helicase unwinds the double helix and separates the two strands by breaking hydrogen bonds.

Pretty fool-proof https://www.youtube.DNA polymerase 2.NO EXCEPTIONS Leading strand vs. using the pre-existing strand as a template Step #2 Moves from 5’ → 3’ . lagging strand DNA polymerase adds in complementary nucleotides by positioning them properly to form H bonds with the template Covalently bonds phosphate group to sugar.7 U3 DNA polymerase links nucleotides together to form a new strand.com/watch?v=8kK2zwjRV0M#t=535 .

still works at 54°C.7 A1 Use of Taq DNA polymerase to produce multiple copies of DNA rapidly by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). optimum 72°C Repeat over and over 30 cycles .DNA amplified by 1 billion!! .Polymerase Chain Reaction HUMAN MADE 2. Make MANY copies of DNA using change in temp.PCR . High temp (~95°C) breaks H bonds Cool down (~54°C) for re-annealing of primers Extra primers prevent parents from coming back together Temp to 72°C to allow Taq DNA polymerase to replicate DNA Taq DNA polymerase withstand 95°C.

First step between DNA → Protein = Transcription .7 U4 Transcription is the synthesis of mRNA copied from the DNA base sequences by RNA polymerase.Transcription 2. DNA is pretty much useless without being “converted” to readable polypeptides.

Transcription DNA (template) → mRNA (end result) occurs in the NUCLEUS 1.7 U4 Transcription is the synthesis of mRNA copied from the DNA base sequences by RNA polymerase. Transcription stops at the end of the gene. Still moves 5’ → 3’ 3.RNA polymerase forms Hbonds between complementary base pairs and covalent bonds between nucleotides a.Transcription 2. . RNA polymerase binds at the start of a gene 2. Similar to DNA replication . RNA separates and double helix reforms 4.

Transcription 2.not transcribed Sequence matches mRNA (but T for U!) . Antisense strands Does it matter which strand DNA copies? YES!!! Template strand = ANTISENSE strand is transcribed from 5’ → 3’ has the complementary DNA sequence Sense strand .7 U4 Transcription is the synthesis of mRNA copied from the DNA base sequences by RNA polymerase. Sense vs.

proteins .7 U5 Translation is the synthesis of polypeptides on ribosomes. Step #2 mRNA → polypeptide chain Ribosome “reads” and translates mRNA codons into amino acid chains 2 subunits .large and small composed of rRNA.Translation 2.

7 U6 The amino acid sequence of polypeptides is determined by mRNA according to the genetic code. mRNA . 2. too! .all different lengths (av.000 nucleotides) depends on the gene How much mRNA and which mRNA is produced? depends on the polypeptides needed by the cell Pancreas lots of mRNA that carries code for insulin Don’t forget about tRNA and rRNA.mRNA and the Genetic Code 2.

How does the tRNA know which amino acids to bring? Codons! mRNA read in sets of 3 nucleotides that code for a specific amino acid. Jessica.Codons (or. 64 possibilities (4x4x4) 20 amino acids Memorize them all? Heck no! CODON CHART! .7 U7 Codons of three bases on mRNA correspond to one amino acid in a polypeptide. you have to use the stupid chart thingie) 2. Yes.

.

S4 Use a table of the genetic code to deduce which codon(s) correspond to which amino acids. Tyr UAU. CACGGG His Gly c. If the mRNA contains the base sequence CUC AUC GAA UAA CCC a. CGA. deduce the base ofPro the ANTISENSE strand of DNA GAG TAG CTT ATT GGG . CGC. Deducing the DNA base sequence for the mRNA strand. Arg CGU. S3. UAC c. Deduce the codons for: a. AGA. ACG Thr b. deduce the AA sequence of the polypeptide translated from the mRNA Leu sequence Ile Glu STOP b. 1. AGG 2. Deduce amino acid sequence that corresponds to these mRNA sequences: a. CGCGCGAGG Arg Ala Arg 3.7 S1. Trp UGG b. Use a table of mRNA codons and their corresponding amino acids to deduce the sequence of amino acids coded by a short mRNA strand of known base sequence.Decoding Base Sequences 2.

Ribosomes are binding sites for both and catalyse polypeptide assembly .7 U8 Translation depends on complementary base pairing between codons on mRNA and anticodons on tRNA. tRNA has a 3 nucleotide complementary anticodon 3.Codons and Anticodons 2. mRNA has a 3 nucleotide codon 2. 1.

releasing tRNA 1 and shifting tRNA 2 6. Ribosome slides down. Ribsome makes next peptide bond Repeat over and over! Mistakes are rare! .Codons and Anticodons 2. 2nd tRNA brings the next AA. tRNA brings the first AA 3. Next tRNA comes in 7. Main events: 1.7 U8 Translation depends on complementary base pairing between codons on mRNA and anticodons on tRNA. Ribosome catalyzes the addition of the 2 AAs 5. mRNA binds to small subunit of ribosome 2. Only 2 tRNAs at a time! 4.

porcine.Production of Human Insulin in Bacteria 2.7 A2 Production of human insulin in bacteria as an example of the universality of the genetic code allowing gene transfer between species. Diabetes patients need insulin bovine. shark used in past has some differences! can cause allergies Genetically transfer the human insulin gene into bacteria Bacteria then mass produce the human version of insulin which we can harvest! .
