Carbohydrates (starch)are broken down in the oral cavity by saliva amylose. They are made up of 3 elements, carbon (C), hydrogen(H) and oxygen(O) and can be found together in three different forms. Either as a monosaccharide, disaccharide or a polysaccharide they are differentiated by the number of rings in their chemical compound. There chemical formation is C6,H12,O6 and due to their bond angles between the carbons, tend to form a pentose of hexoses, stable ring structure. Each carbon atom is then numbered 1-6 and depending on the orientation of the OH group in carbon 1 will decipher weather the monosaccharide is either an a or b
The sequence of the termination signal is followed by a series of Adenines which transcribes to a poly-Uracil tail on RNA. (1) Stem Loop Structure The stem loop hairpin structure is typically 7 to 20 base pairs long and is rich in Guanine-Cytosine bonding. These base pairs are connected by three hydrogen bonds giving strength and stability to the RNA duplex. (4)
1.3 Essential Questions What is the structure and function of DNA? DNA is in the form of a double helix. Each subunit of DNA is known as a nucleotide containing a phosphate group (negative charge), ribose sugar, and nitrogenous base. The four different nitrogenous bases in DNA are paired with another nucleotide containing the complementary nitrogenous base. These pairs are Adenine and Thymine, and Cytosine and Guanine.
1. Write a sentence for each of these mechanisms describing the manner in which the DNA can be transferred from one cell to another. Transformation: During transformation pieces of genetic instructions are released by a bacterium. Another bacterium, picks up the DNA into its own genome. Bacteria taking up foreign DNA is known as transformation. Transformation implies uptake in bacterial, yeast or plant cell DNA while transfection is the term used in reference of mammalian uptake.
A five carbon sugar is reduced to a four carbon sugar. In step five Succlnyl-CoA is converted into Succinate. There is a strong negative standard of free energy from the hydrolysis. In the next step the energy that is released in breaking this bond is used to drive the synthesis of phosphoanhydrice used to create GTP nad ATP.
Abstract: Molecular analysis of DNA encompasses a series of separation, amplification and detection techniques that are used to determine the source of origin of an organism’s tissue sample. It correlates genes’ sequences with their functions, and allows the identification of the unknown organism. This study was done to see whether the techniques of molecular genetics like extraction and polymerase chain reaction could be used to find the animal whose tissue were sampled. GENEIOUS software was used to analyze and align the electropherograms results before GenBank and BLAST were used to identify the unknown DNA sequence by comparing it to a set of already known sequences. The results indicated that the better the fragmentation of the DNA sequences were in the PCR, the better it would be assayed by electrophoresis and the more samples could be used in the CSR; thus, the more accurate the sequences would be.
Synthesis of Hb involved the co-ordinate production of heme & globin. As Hb is composed of 4 subunits i.e. two α & two β globin chain & each of this subunit consist of heme group in the center. Heme- regulates reversible binding of oxygen by Hb.
Conformational isomerism is actually an isomerism that rotates free around single bond. Stereoisomers which can be converted into one another by the twisting of a central carbon-carbon σ bond are called as conformational isomers and sometimes they frequently interconverting rapidly at room temperature. Hydrocarbon alkanes usually present conformation isomerism due to the presence of C-C bonds. C-C σ bonds rotate to give different shapes to a molecule like eclipsed form, staggered and anti form, and staggered and gauche form.
Isolation, Digestion, Visualization of DNA and Analysis of Its Structure, Transcription and Translation By Canyu Yu (Celine) 1004145702 IFP 070 April 2, 2018 Lab Partners: Victoria Zhu Introduction: DNA?short for Deoxyribonucleic Acid), also known as deoxyribonucleotide, is a major component of chromosomes and a major genetic material. It can form genetic instructions to guide biological development and vital functioning (Irobalieva et al., 2015). All living organisms on the earth need for DNA in order to pass along their genetic material to offspring. In the process of DNA isolation, high concentration of ethanol will be added to form DNA
In uncommon occurrences, disulfide bonds between cysteine deposits in various polypeptide chains are included in balancing out quaternary structure. Proteins are connected with numerous capacities all together for a cell to support its life. The accompanying is a rundown of capacities that are done by proteins: * Proteins are essential auxiliary segments in cells: actin, myosin and tubulin are proteins found in the cytoskeleton. *
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.
This lab was designed to study the generation of β-Galactosidase over a 2 lab period, so it got 2 sections; first part was to measure the levels β-galactosidase produced in E.coli K12 cells specifically using IPTG a molecular biology reagent to determine the time of induction of the lac operon. The second part of this experiment was to observe the effects of alternative inducing agents, glucose and antibiotic addition on the induction of β-galactosidase in E.coli K12; this experiments goal was to detect the effect of alternate induction agents, antibiotic and glucose adding on to inducing of β-galactosidase in E.coli. The β-galactosidase is normally switched off in E.coli except in the presence of lactose; the enzyme β-galactosidase breaks down lactose into galactose and glucose. (Matthews 2005). The lac operon or lactose operon is essential for the transportation of lactose in E.coli.
