BIMM100 Fall 2009 Problem Set 3 1. Telomeres a. True or False. Plasmids do not encounter the end replication problem. b. Fill in the blank or circle the correct answer. Telomerase is an RNA/protein complex. The protein component is the enzyme and the RNA portion functions as the for strand synthesis. Telomerase works to the extend (TEMPLATE/DAUGHTER) DNA strand by base pairing to the (TEMPLATE/DAUGHTER) DNA strand. Once polymerization occurs, the DNA/RNA slip which results in a(n) (INCREASE/DECREASE) in the number of telomere repeats. After the telomere is created, the end of the chromosome resembles a double stranded break so protect(s) the telomere. Normally, telomerase is active in and cells. 2. Following a transformation, there are a few ways to see whether your cells picked up your plasmid of interest. For the first sentence of a and b, circle the correct answer. a. A southern blot deals with (DNA/PROTEIN). What will allow you to specifically pick out your gene or protein of interest from the other cellular DNA or proteins? b.
