DNA replication

● Post 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.

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

113 -114 in your book (see answer key if we don’t get to it in class!) .Pause to Analyze 2. p.7 S2 Analysis of Meselson and Stahl’s results to obtain support for the theory of semi-conservative replication of DNA.

Helicase (everyone’s fave enzyme) 2.7 U2 Helicase unwinds the double helix and separates the two strands by breaking hydrogen bonds. 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 ! .

NO EXCEPTIONS Leading strand vs.7 U3 DNA polymerase links nucleotides together to form a new strand.youtube. Pretty fool-proof https://www.DNA polymerase 2. using the pre-existing strand as a template Step #2 Moves from 5’ → 3’ .com/watch?v=8kK2zwjRV0M#t=535 . 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.

Polymerase Chain Reaction HUMAN MADE 2. still works at 54°C. optimum 72°C Repeat over and over 30 cycles .7 A1 Use of Taq DNA polymerase to produce multiple copies of DNA rapidly by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR).PCR .DNA amplified by 1 billion!! . 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. Make MANY copies of DNA using change in temp.

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

Transcription stops at the end of the gene.7 U4 Transcription is the synthesis of mRNA copied from the DNA base sequences by RNA polymerase. Similar to DNA replication . Still moves 5’ → 3’ 3. . RNA separates and double helix reforms 4. Transcription DNA (template) → mRNA (end result) occurs in the NUCLEUS 1. RNA polymerase binds at the start of a gene 2.Transcription 2.RNA polymerase forms Hbonds between complementary base pairs and covalent bonds between nucleotides a.

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.not transcribed Sequence matches mRNA (but T for U!) .Transcription 2.

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

2.mRNA and the Genetic Code 2. mRNA .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.all different lengths (av.7 U6 The amino acid sequence of polypeptides is determined by mRNA according to the genetic code. too! .

Codons (or. 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. you have to use the stupid chart thingie) 2.7 U7 Codons of three bases on mRNA correspond to one amino acid in a polypeptide. Jessica. 64 possibilities (4x4x4) 20 amino acids Memorize them all? Heck no! CODON CHART! . Yes.

Deduce amino acid sequence that corresponds to these mRNA sequences: a.Decoding Base Sequences 2. 1.

Ribosomes are binding sites for both and catalyse polypeptide assembly . 1.7 U8 Translation depends on complementary base pairing between codons on mRNA and anticodons on tRNA.Codons and Anticodons 2. mRNA has a 3 nucleotide codon 2. tRNA has a 3 nucleotide complementary anticodon 3.

Ribosome catalyzes the addition of the 2 AAs 5. Only 2 tRNAs at a time! 4. Main events: 1. Next tRNA comes in 7. releasing tRNA 1 and shifting tRNA 2 6. 2nd tRNA brings the next AA. mRNA binds to small subunit of ribosome 2. Ribsome makes next peptide bond Repeat over and over! Mistakes are rare! . tRNA brings the first AA 3.7 U8 Translation depends on complementary base pairing between codons on mRNA and anticodons on tRNA.Codons and Anticodons 2. Ribosome slides down.

Production of Human Insulin in Bacteria 2. 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! . porcine. Diabetes patients need insulin bovine.7 A2 Production of human insulin in bacteria as an example of the universality of the genetic code allowing gene transfer between species.
