Lecture #9 Date _____
  • Chapter 20~ DNA Technology & Genomics
  • Biotechnology: manipulation of organisms or their components to perform practical tasks or provide useful products
practical dna technology uses
Practical DNA Technology Uses
  • Diagnosis of disease
  • Human gene therapy
  • Pharmaceutical products (vaccines) http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072437316/student_view0/chapter16/animations.html#
  • Forensics
  • Animal husbandry (transgenic organisms)
  • Genetic engineering in plants
  • Ethical concerns?
selective breeding
Selective breeding
  • Mating organisms to produce offspring with desired traits (has been around since ancient times)
  • Inbreeding= mating between closely related individuals
  • Hybrids– offspring of parents with different forms of traits. In plants, hybrids are often stronger or bigger.
recombinant dna
Recombinant DNA
  • Recombinant DNA: DNA in which genes from 2 different sources are linked
  • Genetic engineering: direct manipulation of genes for practical purposes. (cutting out DNA from one organism and putting it into another.) (i.e. how we make recombinant DNA)
  • Transgenic organism= an organism with recombinant DNA

genetic engineering tools
Genetic Engineering Tools
  • Restriction Enzymes
  • DNA ligase
  • Vectors
    • Plasmids!
    • Viruses
  • Reverse Transcriptase
making recombinant dna
Making recombinant DNA
  • Restriction enzymes : in nature, these enzymes protect bacteria from intruding DNA; they cut up the DNA (restriction) and are very specific
    • Restriction site: where the restriction enzyme cuts the DNA (a specific sequence)
    • Sticky end: short single-stranded extensions of restriction fragments (segments of DNA cut by restriction enzymes in a reproducible way)
restriction enzymes
Restriction Enzymes

C:\Documents and Settings\BBAUGHMAN\Desktop\bio powerpoints\Chapter 13 BDOL IC


DNA ligase: enzyme that can join the sticky ends of DNA fragments (called gene splicing)
  • Vector: Something that carries foreign DNA into a cell.
    • Bacterial plasmids… small circles of DNA
    • viruses
reverse transcriptase
Reverse Transcriptase
  • Catalyses the production of DNA from RNA
  • Why is this helpful in making recombinant DNA?
    • Hint: Think about introns and exons…
    • Ex. Bacteria that make human insulin…
rna viruses
RNA viruses
  • Where does Reverse Transcriptase come from?
  • Answer:
  • Retroviruses: transcribe DNA from an RNA template (RNA--->DNA)
    • DNA gets incorporated as provirus in host
  • Ex. HIV

gene cloning
Gene Cloning
  • Clone = genetically identical copy
  • Gene cloning: Making more copies of a gene
    • Bacterial plasmid with recombinant DNA reproduces as the bacteria reproduce.
    • C:\Documents and Settings\BBAUGHMAN\Desktop\bio powerpoints\Chapter 13 BDOL IC
steps for eukaryotic gene cloning
Steps for eukaryotic gene cloning
  • Isolation of cloning vector (bacterial plasmid) & DNA (gene of interest)
  • Insertion of gene of interest into the cloning vector (how?)
  • Introduction of cloning vector into cells (transformation by bacterial cells)
  • Cloning of cells (and foreign genes)
  • Identification of cell clones carrying the gene of interest
    • (nucleic acid hybridization– use radioactively labeled nucleic acid probe) or
    • look for protein product http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072437316/student_view0/chapter16/animations.html#
examples of gmo s
Examples of GMO’s
  • Beta-carotene rice (a.k.a. Golden rice, vitamin A rice)-- daffodil and soil bacterium genes
  • Bt corn and other crops— Bacillus thuringiensis gene.
  • Terminator technologies– cause sterility of seeds.
gene therapy
Gene Therapy

Germ line Therapy: reproductive cells– affects offspring

Somatic Therapy: body cells of an individual

Ex. White blood cells of SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency)

Blood cells are removed

Use of viral vector

Blood cells replaced, having needed gene.


animal cloning
Animal Cloning
  • Clone= a group of genetically identical organisms or a group of cells derived from a single parent cell.
  • ex. Dolly the sheep
  • Somatic cell nuclear transfer
    • Remove Nucleus from an egg
    • Fuse this unfertilized egg with a body cell
  • Ethical issues
    • Reproductive cloning
    • Therapeutic cloning– creation of an embryo to provide stem cells
  • http://videos.howstuffworks.com/hsw/11818-genetics-cloning-video.htm
dna analysis genomics
DNA Analysis & Genomics
  • PCR (polymerase chain reaction)
  • Gel electrophoresis
  • Restriction fragment analysis (RFLPs)
  • DNA sequencing
  • Human genomeproject
polymerase chain reaction pcr
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • Amplification of any piece of DNA without cells (in vitro)
  • Materials: heat, primers (single-stranded DNA), DNA polymerase, nucleotides,
  • Applications: fossils, forensics, prenatal diagnosis, etc.

dna analysis
DNA Analysis
  • Gel electrophoresis: separates nucleic acids or proteins on the basis of size or electrical charge creating bands of DNA consisting of pieces of the same length.
  • Used in DNA Profiling
    • Paternity tests
    • Forensics
  • Ethical issues?
  • Good DNA ANALYSIS COMPUTER LAB ACTIVITY= http://www.biology.arizona.edu/human_bio/activities/blackett/introduction.html
  • See Activities for in class simulation to be used for forensics and paternity tests
how does gel electrophoresis work
How does gel electrophoresis work?
  • DNA is cut with restriction enzymes and added to a well.
  • The negative DNA is attracted to the positive electrode.
  • smaller pieces of DNA move faster through the pores in the gel
  • A unique banding pattern is observed.
  • The human genome is estimated to be about 3 billion base pairs long and to contain 20,000-25,000 distinct genes

dna analysis continued
DNA Analysis (continued)
  • Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs)= differences between different individuals in lengths of restriction fragments
    • Found especially in satellite DNA (highly repetitive non-coding sequences of DNA)
  • RFLP animation http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072437316/student_view0/chapter16/animations.html#
  • Southern blotting: process that reveals sequences and the RFLPs in a DNA sequence http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072437316/student_view0/chapter16/animations.html#
