In two ways DNA binding protein can interact with the target DNA. It can bind to the target DNA in a sequence specific manner, where the DNA binding domain can recognize and bind to a specific sequence of the DNA, which is called recognition sequence. This type of interaction is call 'sequence specific DNA-protein interaction'. Sometimes the DNA binding domain can randomly bind to a double stranded as well as a single stranded DNA. It is called 'sequence non-specific DNA-protein interaction'.
The instructions for the order of amino acids are made by the genes in an organisms cell. A process called DNA transcription makes up the sequence of the amino acids and then a specific protein is produced. Each protein structure has a specific function in it. Changing the structure will then change its function since it rearranges everything in the protein structure. Proteins are there for an essential part of the body, since it helps form body tissues, like muscles, organs and is used within many biological processes as well.
INTRODUCTION To divide, a cell must grow, replicate its genetic material (DNA), and split into two daughter cells. Cells perform these tasks in an organized series of steps that make up the cell cycle. In eukaryotic cells, or cells with a nucleus, the stages of the cell cycle are divided into two major phases: interphase and the mitotic (M) phase. • During interphase, the cell grows and makes a copy of its DNA. • The mitotic (M) phase, divides the cell DNA into two sets and its cytoplasm, forming two new cells.
During this stage, I will double check everything that occured in the S phase and make sure I did not make any mistakes. If I have made a mistake, I will immediately repair it. Metabolic changes that occur during this phase assemble the cytoplasmic materials necessary for the next two stages in the cell cycle, mitosis and cytokinesis. I will continue growing, producing new proteins, and preparing for division. At the end of G2, a second checkpoint, the G2 Checkpoint, will occur to determine if I can now proceed and enter into the next stage, mitosis.
The functions mainly for the nucleolus are RNA-related, and it was also detected the ability of RNA processing and assembly f ribonucleoproteins (RNPs) Another role of the nucleolus is the ability to maturate, assemble and export RNP particles as signal recognition particle, telomerase RNPs and processing of precursor transfer RNAs and U6 small nuclear RNAs.  An additional role in the regulation of the cell cycle was observed, where it manages the stress responses, telomerase activity, and aging. Sequestering or re-leasing some specific proteins in the nucleolus regulates this function. It was always thought that the main function of the nucleolus was linked with the ribosome biogenesis and exportation of mRNA in yeast and mammalian cells, however in recent studies data it was demonstrated the ability of the nucleolus in plant cells in transcriptional gene silencing, mRNA surveillance, nonsense-mediated decay and mRNA export. Eukaryotic ribosomal RNA genes are organized in large clusters, often involving hundreds or thousands of repeated genes, with each gene encoding one copy of the 18S, 5.8S and 25–28S rRNAs.
Zygotene: Synapsis, process of chromosome pairing, caused the visible association of homologues with one another. It is accompanied by the formation of a complex called synaptonemal complex, a ladder-like structure with transverse protein filaments connecting the two lateral elements. Pachytene: By the end of this stage, genetic recombination would be completed under the facilitation of enzymatic machinery from the recombination nodules, located within the center of the synaptonemal

Through the reverse transcription, the viral RNA is transcribed to viral double-stranded DNA. This process is catalyzed by an RNA-dependent DNA polymerase, also known as reverse transcriptase, which is encoded by the viral genome, which is integrated within the cell genome by integrase. This protein cleaves nucleotides of each 3’ ends of the double helix DNA creating two sticky ends, transfers the modified provirus DNA into the cell nucleus and facilitates its integration into the host genome. The integration of proviral DNA and the expression of the provirus require that target cell is in an activated state. Monocytes/macrophages, microglial cells, and latently infected quiescent CD4+ T-cells contain integrated provirus and are important long-living cellular reservoirs of HIV.
However, certain ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules can also be biological catalysts, forming ribozymes. A very important example of a ribozyme is the ribosome, a large assembly of proteins and catalytically active RNA molecules responsible for the synthesis of proteins in the cell. The structure of the active site is specific to the reaction that it catalyzes, with groups in the substrate
- Where DNA can be found and the role does DNA play in heredity?-DNA is found in every cell within the nucleus (Eukaryotic cells) apart from blood cells. Chromosomes are made up of thin strands of (DNA). Each chromosome pair contains thousands of genes. The human genome is made up of about 3 billion chemical bases that are arranged in patterns similar to individual letters arranged into sentences. (Professor Stuart E. Ravnik Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center).
1. How does DNA encode information? DNA is a double-stranded helix composed of a phosphate backbone and deoxyribose, and encodes information by the sequence of its nucleotide bases, which are composed of adenine, thiamine, guanine and cytosine. DNA undergoes transcription, which produces single-stranded mRNA, which uses uracil in place of thiamine. Next step is translation, in which the RNA becomes a protein, which then can act as structural units or enzymes.
What role does the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) play in producing a DNA Profile? PCR amplifies the regions of DNA with short tandem repeats and uses primers with fluorescent labels. This works by replicating the region of DNA several times. The same region is also amplified on both chromosomes, however they are different sizes, which are then put into gel
Furthermore, Acinetobactor baylyi ADP1 like most organisms undergoes a process known as DNA recombination, where two complementary DNA strands cross and exchange portions of DNA. During recombination, a structure known as a Holliday Junction forms and must be resolved, completing the exchange of DNA (Aravind et al. 2000). Recombination is a crucial mechanism in both gene amplification and deletion. Specifically, ADP1 contains a protein called YqgF, a putative Holliday Junction Resolvase, due to its structural similarity to a known resolvase named RuvC (Aravind et al.
The purpose of this experiment is to create a complete genomic library of Aliivibrio fisheri through the use of the lux operon. The examination of the lux operon gene occurs through the extraction of the DNA of Aliivibrio fischeri and digest a large piece of DNA to smaller random pieces. The fragment of DNA will later be ligated together in plasmid. Plasmid acts as vectors to transport DNA from one organism to another. The DNA will then run through a UV-visible spectrophotometer to test the absorbance of the extracted DNA.
An operon is a part of DNA found in bacteria that controls gene regulation. Operons are controlled by an on switch known as the promoter. The Promoter is a place where the protein RNA polymerase binds. RNA polymerase is an enzyme that binds to DNA during transcription and unravels the DNA strands. RNA polymerase also transcribes the sequence of a messenger RNA (mRNA) molecule.
