Competency 5


DNA Fingerprinting





what was dolly
What was Dolly?
  • Dolly the sheep was successfully cloned in Britainin1996 by the scientist “Ian Wilmut” and was put down in February 2003 after developing a lung infection and arthritis.
  • Dolly the sheep became the first vertebrate cloned from the cell

of an adult animal.

stages of dna profiling
Stages of DNA Profiling

DNA is negatively charged so it is attracted to the positive end of the gel.

The shorter DNA fragments move faster than the longer fragments.

DNA is separated by size.

  • A pictorial display of metaphase chromosomes from a mitotic cell
  • Homologous chromosomes- pairs
  • Chromosomes pairs 1-22 are called autosomes
  • Chromosome pair 23 are called the sex chromosomes
down syndrome
Down Syndrome
  • Cause:

Nondisjunction of

chromosome 21

  • Three copies of chromosome 21 =


  • Every cell in that baby’s body will have 3 copies of this chromosome instead of 2.
  • This condition is called TRISOMY
  • Trisomy 21 = Individual has 3 copies of chromosome # 21.
  • Chromosomes FAIL TO SEPARATE during meiosis
  • Meiosis I Nondisjunction
  • Meiosis II Nondisjunction
chromosomal translocation
Chromosomal Translocation

Material is swapped with another chromosome


Burkitt’s Lymphoma

(cancer of the lymph nodes, in children)

chromosomal inversion
Chromosomal Inversion

a segment of genes flip end-to-end on the chromosome


Four-Ring Syndrome

(cleft pallate, club feet, testes don’t descend)

chromosomal duplication
Chromosomal Duplication

A segment of genes is copied twice and added to the chromosome


Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease

(high arched foot, claw feet, confined to a wheelchair)

chromosomal deletion
Chromosomal Deletion

One or more genes are removed


Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (severe mental retardation)

cri du chat syndrome (mewing sounds, mental retardation)

gene mutations 2 types
Gene Mutations: 2 Types

Point Mutation

Frameshift Mutation


Monosomy: The condition in which there is a missing chromosome.

  • Trisomy: The condition in which there are 3 of a specific chromosome.
k aryotypes

Disorder: Trisomy: Definition:

Cystic Fibrosis #7 Mucus accumulate in the lungs

Edward’s Syndrome #18

Down’s Syndrome #21

Patau’s Syndrome #13

genetic disorders
Genetic Disorders
  • PKU: Inability to code for an enzyme needed for changing the amino acid phenylaline to tyrosine.
  • Turner’s Syndrome: Sex chromosome make up is XO. (She/He)
  • Klinefelter’s Syndrome: Sex chromosome makeup is XXY (He/She)
  • Tay-Sachs Disease: Inability to synthesize an enzyme that prevents lipid buildup in the brain
  • Sickle Cell Anemia: Blood cells are sickled shaped




Incomplete Dominance


Multiple Alleles

Sex linked Traits


What is a pedigree chart?How is it used?

  • One important tool a geneticist uses to trace the inheritance of traits is a pedigree chart.
      • A pedigree chart is one that geneticists use to track an inherited trait through several generations of a family to try to understand how it is inherited.

How do you read a pedigree chart?

  • A CIRCLE represents a FEMALE.
  • A SQUARE represents a MALE.
  • A horizontal line represents marriage.
  • A vertical line and brackets connects
  • parents to children.

How do you read a pedigree chart?

  • A shape that is not shaded indicates that the person does NOT have the trait.
  • A shape that is half-shaded indicates that the person is a “carrier” (has 1 allele).
  • A shape that is completely-shaded indicates that the person has the trait (homozygous – both alleles for the trait).
