Name_______________________________ MCB164 Spring 2006 Page of 7 2 1. (14 points) Fill in the blanks of the partially composed letter below using vocabulary words covered during this part of the course. Dear Mom and Dad, First of all, thanks for the check I really appreciate it. I have been taking this really interesting course in genetics. We’ve been learning a lot about cancer, which should really help for my MCATs. Did you know that our genome is constantly undergoing damage and cells themselves repair it? The formation of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) is one of the most lethal forms of damage. DSBs are generally repaired by one of two processes: i) homolgous recombination or ii) nonhomologous end joining . The first is an error- free (or error-proof) process and the second is an error- prone process. Mutations in genes that encode enzymes that repair these breaks often lead to a high predisposition to cancer (or tumors, oncogenesis etc.) . Some of these diseases are heritable such as breast cancer , which is caused by mutation of the BRCA1 (or BRCA2) gene. We read about a new drug called KU0058684 that is a promising new chemotherapy agent for this disease. Love, your F1 p.s. next month can you send $74 so I can get a subscription to Nature? 2. (12 points) Answer the following statements as T (TRUE) or F (FALSE). __T_____Severe-combined immunodeficiency (SCID) can arise due to a loss-of-function mutation
