Unformatted text preview: Mutations: Errors in Replication Lead to Errors in Protein Sequence and Function Mutations = changes in DNA seq Not all mutations lead to aa changes Silent Mutations 4 mRNA codons code for proline = CCA CCC CCU CCG C G “Missense” mutations Substitute one amino acid for another = sickle cell anemia Changes function of a protein GUU = Val GAU = Asp T A “ Nonsense” mutations = substitute a stop codon very disruptive UAG = Stop UGG = Trp C G (Truncation) “Frame-shift” mutations = lose reading frame THE FAT CAT ATE THE RAT ATH EFA TCA TAT ETH ERA T “Frame-shift” mutations Deletion = T HEF ATC ATA TET HER AT Addition = Changes the reading frame. All aa after will be wrong Figure 12-19 Chromosomal mutations Spontaneous (no outside influence) and “induced” mutations Mutagen Tautomer 12-20 Spontaneous (no outside influence) and “induced” mutations C is mutated and pairs with A What are some applications of our Knowledge of DNA structure and replication • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) • DNA sequencing Figure 11-23 The polymerase chain reaction: “PCR” Watch PCR Movie http://www.ppsk.usm.my/lecturers/mravi/Animation/PCR.MOV Figure 11-24 Sequencing DNA DNA sequencing Movie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz-4LSfecM4 Automated DNA sequencing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezAefHhvecM&feature=related ENERGY, ENZYMES and METABOLISM ENERGY, ENZYMES and METABOLISM We need energy to do things, such as biosynthesis, work (muscle contraction, etc) •Chemical reactions enzymes and kinetics thermodynamics •Metabolism - getting energy from fuel (food)! Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that occur in living organisms in order to maintain life . These processes allow organisms to grow reproduce maintain their structures respond to their environments In a living organism, chemical reactions are occurring continuously = METABOLISM Metabolism = sum total of these reactions = anabolism + catabolism THERMODYNAMICS Thermodynamics tells us what is possible given an infinite amount of time….what willgiven an infinite amount of time…....
