Protein synthesis and mutation l.jpg

Protein Synthesis and Mutation

  • Gene Regulation in Prokaryotes

  • Mutation(Permanent, heritable DNA changes)

    • Point mutation (base substitutions)

      • Missense mutation

      • Nonsense mutation (premature stop)

      • Silent mutation

    • Insertions/deletions

      • Frameshift mutation

        • Dramatic change in amino acids

        • Run-ons, premature stops (nonsense mut.)

  • The Creation of Mutation (mutagenesis)

    • Spontaneous mutation

      • Occurs in DNA replication (1 in 109 bp)

    • Chemical mutagens

      • Base pair changers (nitrous acid)

      • Base analogues (e.g.. 5 bromouracil)

      • Frameshift mutagens (aflatoxin, benzpyrene)

    • Radiation

      • X rays, gamma rays break DNA, bases

      • UV light causes knots in DNA strand

        Proteins are made by translation of genetic instructions by a ribosome. Mutations in the genetic instructions usually changes the resultant protein with deleterious effects.

Genes in Prokaryotes Are Grouped Together and Regulated Together

Repressible operon of genes (normally “on”)

Used to regulate genes that are used all the time, like amino acid making genes

Inducible operon of genes (normally “off”)

Used in “rainy day” gene sets like for lactose utilization


Mutation some definitions l.jpg

Mutation: Some Definitions

  • A heritable change in the genetic material

  • Mutations may be neutral, beneficial, or harmful

  • Mutagen: Agent that causes mutations

  • Spontaneous mutations: Occur in the absence of a mutagen

Summary of Mutation Types

Run-on mutation

Stop codon lost so protein is extra long

(can also produce nonsense and run-ons)

Spontaneous and induced mutation l.jpg

Spontaneous and Induced Mutation

  • Spontaneous mutation rate = 1 in 109 (a billion) replicated base pairs or 1 in 106 ( a million) replicated genes. Mistakes occur during DNA Replication just before cell division. This is natural error rate of DNA polymerase.

  • Mutagens increase mistakes to to 10–5 (100 thousand) or 10–3 ( a thousand) per replicated gene


Chemical mutagens l.jpg

Chemical Mutagens

Base pair altering chemicals (base modifiers) deaminators like nitrous acid, nitrosoguanidine, or alkylating agents like cytoxan

Nitrous acid

cytoxan

Base analogues “mimic” certain bases but pair with others - E.g. 5-fluorouracil, cytarabine

Acts like a “C”

Incorporated as a “T”

cytarabine

Mutation ionizing radiation l.jpg

Mutation: Ionizing Radiation

  • Ionizing radiation (X rays, gamma rays, UV light) causes the formation of ions that can react with nucleotides and the deoxyribose-phosphate backbone.

  • Nucleotide excision repairs mutations


X rays and gamma rays cause breaks in dna l.jpg

X-rays and Gamma Rays Cause Breaks in DNA


Ionizing radiation uv l.jpg

Ionizing Radiation: UV

  • UV radiation causes thymine dimers, which block replication.

  • Light-repair separates thymine dimers

  • Sometimes the “repair job” introduces the wrong nucleotide, leading to a point mutation.
