Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Genetic Engineering

  • 1. Genetic engineering is a faster and more reliable method for increasing the frequency of a specific allele in a population by cutting fragments of DNA from one organismand inserting the fragments into a host organism of the same or a different species.


Genetic technology

  • (It is a way to increase the frequency of a specific allele by putting pieces of DNA from one organism into another)

Genetic Engineering

  • 2. You also may hear genetic engineering referred to as recombinantDNA technology.

  • 3. Recombinant DNA is made by connecting or recombining, fragments of DNA from different sources.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3481

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Transgenic organisms contain recombinant DNA

  • 4. Plants and animals that contain functional recombinant DNA from an organism of a different type are known as transgenic organisms because they contain foreign DNA.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3482

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

5. Transgenic organisms contain recombinant DNA

  • The first step of the process is to isolate the foreign DNA fragment that will be inserted.

  • The second step is to attach the DNA fragment to a carrier.

  • The third step is the transfer into the host organism.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3483

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Restriction enzymes cleave (cut) DNA

  • To isolate a DNA fragment, small pieces of DNA must be cut from a chromosome.

  • 6. Restriction enzymes are bacterial proteins that have the ability to cut both strands of the DNA molecule at a specific nucleotide sequence.

Vectors transfer DNA

  • 7. A vector is the means by which DNA from another species can be carried into the host cell.

  • Vectors may be biological or mechanical.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3486

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Vectors transfer DNA

  • 8. Biological vectors include viruses and bacterial plasmids.

  • 9. A plasmid, is a small ring of DNA found in a bacterial cell.

Vectors transfer DNA

  • 10. Two types of mechanical vectors carry foreign DNA into a cell’s nucleus


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3487

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Vectors transfer DNA

  • One, a micropipette, is inserted into a cell;.

the other is a microscopic metal bullet coated with DNA that is shot into the cell from a gene gun


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3488

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Insertion into a vector

  • If a plasmid and foreign DNA have been cleaved with the same restriction enzyme, the ends of each will match and they will join together, reconnecting the plasmid ring.

  • The foreign DNA is recombined into a plasmid or viral DNA with the help of a second enzyme.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 3489

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Gene cloning

  • After the foreign DNA has been inserted into the plasmid, the recombined DNA is transferred into a bacterial cell.

  • 11. An advantage to using bacterial cells to clone DNA is that they reproduce quickly; therefore, millions of bacteria are produced and each bacterium contains hundreds of recombinant DNA molecules.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34810

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Gene cloning

  • 12. Clones are genetically identical copies.

  • Plasmids also can be used to deliver genes to animal or plant cells, which incorporate the recombinant DNA.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34811

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Gene cloning

  • 13. Each time the host cell divides it copies the recombinant DNA along with its own.

Cloning of animals

  • Although their techniques are inefficient, scientists are coming closer to perfecting the process of cloning animals.


What animals have been cloned

What animals have been cloned?

  • Scientists have been cloning animals for many years.

  • In 1952, the first animal, a tadpole, was cloned.

  • www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/cloning.shtml#animalsQ


Genetic technology

  • Before the creation of Dolly, the first mammal cloned from the cell of an adult animal, clones were created from embryonic cells.

  • Since Dolly, researchers have cloned a number of large and small animals including sheep, goats, cows, mice, pigs, cats, and rabbits. All these clones were created using nuclear transfer technology.

  • Hundreds of cloned animals exist today, but the number of different species is limited. Attempts at cloning certain species have been unsuccessful.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34814

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Polymerase chain reaction

  • 14. A method called polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been developed in order to replicate DNA outside living organisms,

  • This method uses heat to separate DNA strands from each other.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34815

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Polymerase chain reaction

  • The machine repeatedly replicates the DNA, making millions of copies in less than a day.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34816

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Sequencing DNA

  • In DNA sequencing, millions of copies of a double-stranded DNA fragment are cloned using PCR. Then, the strands are separated from each other.

  • The single-stranded fragments are placed in four different test tubes, one for each DNA base.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34817

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Sequencing DNA

  • Each tube contains four normal nucleotides (A,C, G,T) and an enzyme that can catalyze the synthesis of a complementary strand.

  • One nucleotide in each tube is tagged with a different fluorescent color.

  • The reactions produce complementary strands of varying lengths.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34818

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Sequencing DNA

  • 15. These strands are separated according to size by 16. gelelectrophoresis producing a pattern of fluorescent bands in the gel.

  • The bands are visualized using a laser scanner or UV light.


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34819

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Gel Electrophoresis

  • Restriction enzymes are the perfect tools for cutting DNA. However, once the DNA is cut, a scientist needs to determine exactly what fragments have been formed..


Section 13 2 summary pages 341 34820

Section 13.2 Summary – pages 341 - 348

Restriction enzymes

  • Either one or several restriction enzymes is added to a sample of DNA. The restriction enzymes cut the DNA into fragments.

23. Mapping and Sequencing the Human Genome

  • In 1990, scientists in the United States organized the Human Genome Project (HGP). It is an international effort to completely map and sequence the human genome, the approximately 35 000-40 000 genes on the 46 human chromosomes.

  • The human genome map shows the sequence of the genes on the 46 chromosomes.


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3531

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

Mapping and Sequencing the Human Genome

  • In February of 2001, the HGP published its working draft of the 3 billion base pairs of DNA in most human cells.

  • The sequence of chromosomes 21 and 22 was finished by May 2000.

  • It was completed in 2003, but the data is still being analyzed.


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3532

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

24. Applications of the Human Genome Project

  • Improved techniques for

  • prenatal diagnosis of human disorders,

  • use of gene therapy, and

  • development of new methods of crime detection


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3533

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

Diagnosis of genetic disorders

  • One of the most important benefits of the HGP has been the diagnosis of genetic disorders.


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3534

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

Diagnosis of genetic disorders

  • The DNA of people with and without a genetic disorder is compared to find differences that are associated with the disorder. Once it is clearly understood where a gene is located and that a mutation in the gene causes the disorder, a diagnosis can be made for an individual, even before birth.


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3535

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

Gene therapy

  • Individuals who inherit a serious genetic disorder may now have hope—gene therapy. 25. Gene therapy is the insertion of normal genes into human cells to correct genetic disorders. Much research is being done, but the FDA has not approved any therapy for sale.


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3536

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

DNA fingerprinting

  • DNA fingerprinting can be used to convict or acquit individuals of criminal offenses because every person is genetically unique.

  • 26. DNA fingerprinting works because no two individuals (except identical twins) have the same DNA sequences, and because all cells (except gametes) of an individual have the same DNA.


Genetic technology

  • To identify individuals, forensic scientists scan 13 DNA regions, or loci, that vary from person to person and use the data to create a DNA profile of that individual (sometimes called a DNA fingerprint). There is an extremely small chance that another person has the same DNA profile for a particular set of 13 regions. (Human genome project info)

Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3537

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

DNA fingerprinting

  • In a forensic application of DNA fingerprinting, a small DNA sample is obtained from a suspect and from blood, hair, skin, or semen found at the crime scene.

  • The DNA, which includes the unique non-coding segments, is cut into fragments with restriction enzymes.


Section 13 3 summary pages 349 3538

Section 13.3 Summary – pages 349 - 353

DNA fingerprinting

  • The fragments are separated by gel electrophoresis, then further analyzed. If the samples match, the suspect most likely is guilty.
