Outline of Lecture 18

Polyploidy

Variation in structure/arrangement of chromosomes

- deletion

- duplication

- inversion

- translocation

III. DNA structure and analysis


Announcements

I. Polyploidy

Hybridization of closely related species; often sterile.

Additional sets identical to parents.


Announcements

How does polyploidy arise naturally?- DNA is duplicated in S phase but cell doesn’t go into M phase- Generation of Tetraploids Using Colchicine, a Microtubule Inhibitor

Triploids can be created by inhibition of polar body

formation during oogenesis, followed by fertilization.


Announcements

How is polyploidy relevant to our daily lives?

  • Polyploids are generally bigger than diploids;

  • therefore, in horticulture and agriculture they are useful.

  • Examples: -Bananas and tiger lilly - 3n

    • -coffee, peanuts, McIntosh apples - 4n

    • -strawberry - 8n

Announcements

II. Types of Chromosomal Rearrangements, Caused by Breakage and Rejoining


Announcements

Deletions

Chromsome breaks

Part is lost - a deletion

Synapsis with a chromosome

with a large intercalary deletion - loop formation.


Announcements

Duplications

Cytology showed that bar is not due to a gene mutation.

Gene redundancy

Phenotypic variation

Source of genetic variation during evolution

Unequal crossing over


Announcements

Ohno’s hypothesis on the role of gene duplication in evolution

Question: How do “new” genes arise?

Duplications might allow for major mutation in the extra copy of the gene. Over time, mutations could result in a new function for the duplicated gene - essentially a new gene.

Example: myoglobin and hemoglobin


Announcements

Inversions

Inversions don’t add or delete genetic info, but can have effects on gamete formation.


Announcements

Translocations

Robertsonian translocation: most common type in humans

One example:

SRY in an XX “male”


Announcements

Inheritance of 14/21 Translocation

A B  E D C F G

a. translocation of C D E

Announcements

III. DNA Structure and analysis

What is the genetic material?

Chromosomes contain protein and DNA - which is it?

What must genetic material do?

1. Replication

2. Storage of information

3. Expression of information

4. Variation by mutation - evolution


Announcements

The Flow of Genetic Information (The Central Dogma)

Trait


Announcements

Is the Genetic Material Protein or DNA?

  • Many favored proteins until the mid-1940’s.

  • DNA is simple chemically; how could it then hold complex genetic information?

  • Proteins are much more complicated chemically; perhaps they might hold genetic information.


Announcements

Evidence for DNA as Hereditary Molecule

  • Transformation studies

    • Griffith (1927)

    • Avery, MacLeod and McCarty (1944)

  • Hershey-Chase experiment (1952)

  • Chargaff’s Rules

  • Molecular Studies


Announcements

Griffith’s Transformation Expt.

Bacteria Used

Living smooth

(virulent)

Living rough

(avirulent)

Killed smooth

Living rough +

killed smooth

Conclusion:

Killed smooth converted

living rough to virulent cells - a

Transforming Principle (some smooth component) is responsible.


Announcements

Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty Expt:DNA is the “Transforming Principle”


Announcements

Hershey-Chase Experiment

  • Radioactively labeled DNA and protein:

    • 32P atom is in phosphate molecules in DNA and RNA, only low levels in protein (phosphorylated proteins).

    • 35S atom is in sulfur containing-amino acids (cysteine and methionine), not in DNA, RNA.


Announcements

Announcements

RNA is the Hereditary Material in RNA Viruses, e.g. TMV

Tobacco Mosaic Virus


Announcements

Reconstitution of Hybrid TMV (Fraenkel-Conrat & Singer)

Strain 1

Strain 2

Hybrid most like TMV, not HR,

therefore RNA is genetic mat’l


Announcements

Bases and Sugars

pyrimidines

purines

Ribose

sugars


Announcements

Bases and Sugars in DNA and RNA

  • In DNA: deoxyribose + A, T, G or C

    • dAdeoxyadenosine

    • dTdeoxythymidine

    • dGdeoxyguanosine

    • dCdeoxycytidine

  • In RNA: ribose + A, U, G, or C

    • Aadenosine

    • Uuridine

    • Gguanosine

    • Ccytidine


Announcements

Announcements

Chargaff’s Rules

  • 1949-1953, quantified amounts of each base in DNA from different species.

  • In every species, amount of A = Amount of T, and Amount of G = Amount of C

  • If that’s true, then A + G = C + T

  • The % GC and % AT varied from species to species, but always adds up to 100%.
