2OverviewCurrently, the largest fully terrestrial animal in Antarctica is a 5mm long fly.However, fossils on Antarctica show a history of tropical animals, including dinosaurs.An ever changing world give rise to new organisms, but what was the first organic being on Earth?
325.1 Conditions on Early Earth Made The Origin of Life Possible Life began in 4 stages:Abiotic synthesis of small organic molecules (amino acids and nitrogen bases)The joining of these small molecules into macromolecules (proteins and nucleic acids)The packaging of these molecules into protocells, droplets with membranes that maintained an internal chemistry different from that of their surroundings.The origin of self-replicating molecules making inheritance possible.
4Synthesis of Organic Compounds Earth formed ~4.6 b.y.a.Earth was hot.Bombardment by rocks and ice (comets).Early atmosphere likely contained:water vaporchemicals from volcanic eruptions (N2 and its oxides, CO2, methane, ammonia, H2, hydrogen sulfide)Earth cooled forming oceans
5In 1953, Stanley Miller and Harold Urey conducted lab experiments that showed that the abiotic synthesis of organic molecules in a reducing atmosphere is possibleThe first organic compounds may have been synthesized near volcanoes or deep-sea vents due to reducing properties.EXPERIMENT“Atmosphere”ElectrodeCondenserCH4H2NH3Water vaporCooled “rain” containing organic moleculesCold waterSample for chemical analysisH2O “sea”
8Macromolecules and Protocells Dropping monomers on hot “Earth” produces polymers (amino acids proteins; nucleotides RNA)Vesicles form when lipids are added to water.Formation of lipid bilayerThese vesicles absorb molecules near their surroundings (early proteins and RNA).(a) Self-assemblyTime (minutes)Precursor molecules plusmontmorillonite clayPrecursormolecules onlyan index of vesicle numberRelative turbidity,20 m(b) Reproduction(c) Absorption of RNAVesicleboundary1 m0.20.4402060
9RNA serves as instructions for protein synthesis as well as acts as enzymes. RNA molecules that were more stable or replicated more quickly would have left the most descendent RNA molecules.Copying errors occurred (mutations) leading to slight differences and thus natural selection.
1025.2 The Fossil Record Documents The History of Life Fossils are only made in certain conditions, making the fossil record incomplete.However, it can be seen how extinct species could have given rise to current ones (sepciation).DimetrodonStromatolitesFossilizedstromatoliteCoccosteuscuspidatus4.5 cm0.5 m2.5 cmPresentRhomaleosaurusvictorTiktaalikHallucigeniaDickinsoniacostataTappania1 cm1 m100 mya1752003003754005005255656001,5003,500270Figure 25.4

1925.4 The Rise and Fall of Groups of Organisms Reflect Differences in Speciation and Extinction Rates Earth’s crust is broken into plates that are constantly in motion (moving 2cm/yr).This causes changes in habitats and climates on Earth over time (Antarctica used be near the equator).

23Effects of Developmental Genes 25.5 Major Changes in Body Form Can Result From Changes in The Sequences and Regulation of Developmental GenesEffects of Developmental GenesCurrent organisms are genetically similar to ancestors, but developmental timing makes them physiologically different.Ex: heterochrony between chimps and humans.Ex: Paedomorphosis in salamanders (juvenile anatomy in adults)Chimpanzee infantChimpanzee adultHuman adultHuman fetusChimpanzee fetusGills
24Changes in Spatial Pattern Hox (homeotic) genes tell cells how to develop according to where it is located on the embryo.
25Changes in GenesChanges in developmental genes can result in new morphological formsProbably from duplicationsEx: Specific changes in the Ubx gene have been identified that can “turn off” leg developmentHox gene 6Hox gene 7Hox gene 8UbxAbout 400 myaDrosophilaArtemia
26Changes in Gene Regulation Change in regulation, not sequence of DNA.Ex: threespine sticklebacks in lakes have fewer spines than their marine relativesThe gene sequence remains the same, but the regulation of gene expression is different in the two groups of fishVentral spinesThreespine stickleback(Gasterosteus aculeatus)

28Evolution is NOT Goal Oriented Organisms don’t think “I need wings” and are then able to make wings over generations.Organisms use what they have that helps them currently.
