2 Figure 18.6 The lytic cycle of phage T4, a virulent phage
Attachment. The T4 phage uses its tail fibers to bind to specific receptor sites on the outer surface of an E. coli cell. Entry of phage DNA and degradation of host DNA. The sheath of the tail contracts, injecting the phage DNA into the cell and leaving an empty capsid outside. The cell’s DNA is hydrolyzed. Synthesis of viral genomes and proteins. The phage DNA directs production of phage proteins and copies of the phage genome by host enzymes, using components within the cell. Assembly. Three separate sets of proteins self-assemble to form phage heads, tails, and tail fibers. The phage genome is packaged inside the capsid as the head forms. Release. The phage directs production of an enzyme that damages the bacterial cell wall, allowing fluid to enter. The cell swells and finally bursts, releasing 100 to 200 phage particles. 1 2 4 3 5 Phage assembly Head Tails Tail fibers

Figure 18.7 The lytic and lysogenic cycles of phage , a temperate phage Many cell divisions produce a large population of bacteria infected with the prophage. The bacterium reproduces normally, copying the prophage and transmitting it to daughter cells. Phage DNA integrates into the bacterial chromosome, becoming a prophage. New phage DNA and proteins are synthesized and assembled into phages. Occasionally, a prophage exits the bacterial chromosome, initiating a lytic cycle. Certain factors determine whether The phage attaches to a host cell and injects its DNA. Phage DNA circularizes The cell lyses, releasing phages. Lytic cycle is induced Lysogenic cycle is entered or Prophage Bacterial chromosome Phage DNA

Vesicles transport the glycoproteins from the ER to the cell’s plasma membrane. 7 The viral proteins include capsid proteins and reverse transcriptase (made in the cytosol) and envelope glycoproteins (made in the ER). 6 The double-stranded DNA is incorporated as a provirus into the cell’s DNA. 4 Proviral genes are transcribed into RNA molecules, which serve as genomes for the next viral generation and as mRNAs for translation into viral proteins. 5 Reverse transcriptase catalyzes the synthesis of a second DNA strand complementary to the first. 3 catalyzes the synthesis of a DNA strand complementary to the viral RNA. 2 New viruses bud off from the host cell. 9 Capsids are assembled around viral genomes and reverse transcriptase molecules. 8 mRNA RNA genome for the next viral generation Viral RNA RNA-DNA hybrid DNA Chromosomal DNA NUCLEUS Provirus HOST CELL Reverse transcriptase New HIV leaving a cell HIV entering a cell 0.25 µm HIV Membrane of white blood cell The virus fuses with the cell’s plasma membrane.

Phage DNA Donor cell Recipient cell A+ B+ B– A– Recombinant cell Crossing over Phage infects bacterial cell that has alleles A+ and B+ Host DNA (brown) is fragmented, and phage DNA and proteins are made. This is the donor cell. A bacterial DNA fragment (in this case a fragment with the A+ allele) may be packaged in a phage capsid. Phage with the A+ allele from the donor cell infects a recipient A–B– cell, and crossing over (recombination) between donor DNA (brown) and recipient DNA (green) occurs at two places (dotted lines). The genotype of the resulting recombinant cell (A+B–) differs from the genotypes of both the donor (A+B+) and the recipient (A–B–). 1 2 3 4 5

9 Figure 18.18 Conjugation and recombination in E. coli
A cell carrying an F plasmid (an F+ cell) can form a mating bridge with an F– cell and transfer its F plasmid. A single strand of the F plasmid breaks at a specific point (tip of blue arrowhead) and begins to move into the recipient cell. As transfer continues, the donor plasmid rotates (red arrow). 2 DNA replication occurs in both donor and recipient cells, using the single parental strands of the F plasmid as templates to synthesize complementary strands. 3 The plasmid in the recipient cell circularizes. Transfer and replication result in a compete F plasmid in each cell. Thus, both cells are now F+. 4 F Plasmid Bacterial chromosome Bacterial chromosome F– cell F+ cell Hfr cell F factor The circular F plasmid in an F+ cell can be integrated into the circular chromosome by a single crossover event (dotted line). The resulting cell is called an Hfr cell (for High frequency of recombination). Since an Hfr cell has all the F-factor genes, it can form a mating bridge with an F– cell and transfer DNA. A single strand of the F factor breaks and begins to move through the bridge. DNA replication occurs in both donor and recipient cells, resulting in double-stranded DNA The location and orientation of the F factor in the donor chromosome determine the sequence of gene transfer during conjugation. In this example, the transfer sequence for four genes is A-B-C-D. 5 The mating bridge usually breaks well before the entire chromosome and the rest of the F factor are transferred. 6 Two crossovers can result in the exchange of similar (homologous) genes between the transferred chromosome fragment (brown) and the recipient cell’s chromosome (green). 7 The piece of DNA ending up outside the bacterial chromosome will eventually be degraded by the cell’s enzymes. The recipient cell now contains a new combination of genes but no F factor; it is a recombinant F– cell. 8 Temporary partial diploid Recombinant F– bacterium Conjugation and transfer of an F plasmid from an F+ donor to an F– recipient (a) Conjugation and transfer of part of the bacterial chromosome from an Hfr donor to an F– recipient, resulting in recombination (b) A+ B+ C+ D+ F– cell A– B– C– D– Mating bridge Plasmid – extra-chromosomal, small, circular, self-replicating DNA

14 Before the invention of antibiotics, the clean modern hospitals of India, which were mostly reserved for Europeans, reported cholera death rates of 86%. Meanwhile, in other more crowded and less hygienic hospitals, the death rate from cholera was only 27%. WHY? Based on knowledge gained from the case study, explain the most likely process that occurred in the crowded hospitals that led to such a low death rate from cholera.

15 Observable cell differentiation
Figure 21.4a, b Animal development. Most animals go through some variation of the blastula and gastrula stages. The blastula is a sphere of cells surrounding a fluid-filled cavity. The gastrula forms when a region of the blastula folds inward, creating a tube—a rudimentary gut. Once the animal is mature, differentiation occurs in only a limited way—for the replacement of damaged or lost cells. Plant development. In plants with seeds, a complete embryo develops within the seed. Morphogenesis, which involves cell division and cell wall expansion rather than cell or tissue movement, occurs throughout the plant’s lifetime. Apical meristems (purple) continuously arise and develop into the various plant organs as the plant grows to an indeterminate size.

16 Chapter 21: The Genetic Basis of Development
How do we study development in the genetics-based lab? How does a zygote transform into an organism? How do cells become differentiated? -All cells have the same DNA, so differential gene expression must be the explanation!

TECHNIQUE Shown here is the procedure used to produce Dolly, the first reported case of a mammal cloned using the nucleus of a differentiated cell. RESULTS The cloned animal is identical in appearance and genetic makeup to the donor animal supplying the nucleus, but differs from the egg cell donor and surrogate mother. Figure 21.7

4. What is a stem cell? -a relatively unspecialized cell -can differentiate into cells of different types under specific conditions -Embryonic = totipotent -Adult = pluripotent (can produce some, but not all, cell types) Figure 21.9 Early human embryo at blastocyst stage (mammalian equiva- lent of blastula) From bone marrow in this example Totipotent cells Pluripotent Cultured stem cells Different culture conditions types of differentiated Liver cells Nerve cells Blood cells Embryonic stem cells Adult stem cells

5. What type of genetic signal leads to cell differentiation? -Step 1: Cell receives signals from other cells -Step 2: A regulatory gene is turned “on”, and a protein is made that activates other genes. (“point of no return”) -Step 3: Activated genes make proteins that determine cell type/ structure/behavior. DNA OFF mRNA Another transcription factor MyoD Muscle cell (fully differentiated) MyoD protein (transcription factor) Myoblast (determined) Embryonic precursor cell Myosin, other muscle proteins, and cell-cycle blocking proteins Other muscle-specific genes Master control gene myoD Nucleus Determination. Signals from other cells lead to activation of a master regulatory gene called myoD, and the cell makes MyoD protein, a transcription factor. The cell, now called a myoblast, is irreversibly committed to becoming a skeletal muscle cell. 1 Differentiation. MyoD protein stimulates the myoD gene further, and activates genes encoding other muscle-specific transcription factors, which in turn activate genes for muscle proteins. MyoD also turns on genes that block the cell cycle, thus stopping cell division. The nondividing myoblasts fuse to become mature multinucleate muscle cells, also called muscle fibers. 2

21 Figure 47.25 EXPERIMENT RESULTS CONCLUSION Spemann and Mangold transplanted a piece of the dorsal lip of a pigmented newt gastrula to the ventral side of the early gastrula of a nonpigmented newt. During subsequent development, the recipient embryo formed a second notochord and neural tube in the region of the transplant, and eventually most of a second embryo. Examination of the interior of the double embryo revealed that the secondary structures were formed in part from host tissue. The transplanted dorsal lip was able to induce cells in a different region of the recipient to form structures different from their normal fate. In effect, the dorsal lip “organized” the later development of an entire embryo.

-cytoplasmic determinants in the unfertilized egg regulate gene expression in the zygote that affects differentiation/development Figure 21.11a Unfertilized egg cell Molecules of a a cytoplasmic determinant Fertilization Zygote (fertilized egg) Mitotic cell division Two-celled embryo Cytoplasmic determinants in the egg. The unfertilized egg cell has molecules in its cytoplasm, encoded by the mother’s genes, that influence development. Many of these cytoplasmic determinants, like the two shown here, are unevenly distributed in the egg. After fertilization and mitotic division, the cell nuclei of the embryo are exposed to different sets of cytoplasmic determinants and, as a result, express different genes. (a) Nucleus
