BI. 4c

Students know

how mutations in the DNA sequence of a gene may or may not affect the expression of the
gene, or the sequence of amino acids in an encoded protein.


BI.4.d

Students know specialization of cells in
multicellular

organisms is usually due to different patterns of gene
expression rather than to differences of the genes themselves.


BI 5c
Students know

how genetic engineering (biotechnology) is used to produce novel biomedical and agricultural
products.

Genes are expressed/transcribed when
the cell needs it.

Each cell expresses different parts of the DNA.

Changes in DNA code/Sequence

PROTEIN


Changes protein ( shape or different
protein)

FUNCTION


Abnormal cell function


Point mutations


single nitrogen base change


silent mutation


no amino acid change


redundancy in code


missense


change amino acid

What kind of mutation?

Missense
!


Frameshift


shift in the
reading
frame


changes everything
“downstream”


insertions


adding base(s)


deletions


losing base(s)


Where would this mutation

cause the most change:

beginning or end of gene?

Gametes/sex cell mutations


Yes


Ex. Changes in egg and sperm cell genes due to
chemicals



Somatic/body cell mutations


No


Ex. Scars on your mother’s hand as a result of
an accident


Plasmids used to insert new genes into bacteria

gene we
want

cut
DNA with
restriction
enzymes

cut plasmid DNA

insert “gene we want” into
plasmid
...“
glue”
together
with
ligase

like what?


…insulin



Human Growth
Hormone




healthy genes

Cut DNA?

DNA scissors?

recombinant
plasmid
