1 DNA and RNA Chapter 12-1 http://faculty.uca.edu/~johnc/mbi1440.htm
2 Objectives: Summarize the relationship between genes and DNA Summarize the experiments of Frederick Griffith, Oswald Avery, and Hershey-Chase.Describe the overall structure of the DNA molecule
3 GENETIC MATERIALIn the middle of the 1900’s scientists were asking questions about genes.What is a gene made of?How do genes work?How do genes determine characteristics of organisms?
4 DO PROTEINS CARRY THE GENETIC CODE? At the time most scientists believed that _________ had to be the molecules that made up genes.There were so many different kinds proteins and DNA seemed to be too monotonous repeating the same ___ subunits.proteins4
5 SEE GRIFFITH’s EXPERIMENT 1928 – Frederick Griffith looked atpneumonia bacteria trying tofigure out what made people dieR (Rough) strain-mice livedS (SMOOTH) strain- killed miceImages from:
6 If he heated the LETHAL strain first _______________mice lived.The heat killed bacteria were no longerLETHAL.Images from:
7 Images from: http://microvet. arizona BUT. . .If he mixed heat-killed LETHAL bacteria with live harmless bacteria________________mice DIED !When he looked inside dead mice, he found______________ bacteria!Somehow the heat killed LETHAL bacteria passed their characteristics to the harmless bacteria.LIVE LETHAL
8 See a video clip about GRIFFITH’S EXPERIMENTS (12A)
9 But what was the factor that caused the transformation? Griffith called this process __________________ because one strain of bacteria had been changed permanently into another.But what was the factor that caused thetransformation?A protein ? A lipid ? A carbohydrate ?A nucleic acid ?TRANSFORMATION
10 1944- Oswald Avery’s team of scientists repeat Griffith’s experiments 1944-Oswald Avery’s team of scientistsrepeat Griffith’s experimentslooking for the transforming molecule.After heat killing the LETHALPneumonia bacteria, he treated them with digestive enzymes that destroy specific kinds of molecules.If proteins, polysaccharides, lipids, or RNA’s were destroyed .. .______________________________Transformation still occurred!
11 DNA But when they treated the heat-killed LETHAL bacteria with enzymes todestroy _____ there was NOtransformation!. . . the mice lived!DNA was the moleculethat caused the geneticchange.DNA
12 GRIFFITH EXPERIMENT (PNEUMONIA-RAT) Showed ____________ could bepassed between bacteria & cause achange.AVERY EXPERIMENT (Digestive enzymes)showed that the genetic materialwas _____genetic materialDNA
13 bacteriophages proteins Scientists are skeptical… it takes more than one experiment to convince them.1952-Alfred Hershey and Martha Chaseexperimented with viruses that infect bacteria = _________________Knew bacteriophageswere made of________ and _______bacteriophagesproteinsDNAHear about theircool experiment
23 CHARGAFF’S RULES A = T G = C _________ _________ _________ _________At time no one knew why…now we know its becauseAdenine always bonds across with____________Guanine always bonds across with ____________THYMINECYTOSINEImage from:
24 DOUBLE HELIX Hydrogen _____________ bonds between nitrogen bases hold the two strands together.Image from:
25 Interest Grabber Answers 1. On a sheet of paper, draw a curving or zig-zagging line that divides the paper into two halves. Vary the bends in the line as you draw it. Without tracing, copy the line on a second sheet of paper.Hold the papers side by side, and compare the lines. Do they look the same?3. Now, stack the papers, one on top of the other, and hold the papers up to the light. Are the lines the same?4. How could you use the original paper to draw exact copies of the line without tracing it?5. Why is it important that the copies of DNA that are given to new daughter cells be exact copies of the original?Lines will likely look similar.Overlaying the papers will show variations in the lines.Use 1st line as a template to draw the line on another sheet of paper.Each cell must have the correct DNA, or the cell will not have the correct characteristics.
29 DNA in EUKARYOTES is packaged into chromosomes Humans have approximately 3 billion base pairs (1 m long)60,000 to 100,000 genesIf the diameter of the DNA (2 nanometers) was as wide as a fishing line (0.5 millimeters) it might stretch as far as 21.2 km (or 13.6 miles) in length which would all have to be packed into a nucleus, the equivalent size of 25 cm in diameter. That is some packaging!

48 RNA’s require EDITING before use Image by Riedell
49 WHY WASTE IT? Why spend energy making a large RNA and then throw parts away?May allow same gene to be used indifferent ways in different kinds of cells.May have a role in evolution… allows smallchanges in genes to have a big effect.

57 GENES & PROTEINS Proteins are the connection between Mendel/flower images from: Blood cell by RiedellGENES & PROTEINSProteins are the connection betweenthe gene code in the DNA and how thatgene is expressed.A gene that codes for an enzyme (protein)to make a pigment can controlthe color of a flower.A gene that codes for an enzyme (protein)adds carbohydrates to glycoproteins to produce your blood type.Enzymes catalyze and regulate chemical reactions so proteins build and operate all cell components.

94 In the 1980s, researchers discovered a series of genes in fruit flies called ___________ These genes control the organization of the developing embryo and tell parts where to grow and when. Mutations to Hox genes can cause a leg to grow where an antenna should sprout.Hox genes
96 HOX GENESSimilar genes controlling the eyes of insects and our own eyes have also been discovered.Our version of the gene can be inserted in a fly and still trigger the building of an insect eye!
