Unformatted text preview: MCB 120L Experiment 8D write-up Spring 2011 Experiment 8D Results may vary dependent upon recent annotations and updates, etc In the Detailed BLAST results section: (i) What is the highest percent identity with the query sequence with the enzyme name Homoserine Dehydrogense: 55% From what organism: Microcystis aeruginosa PCC 7806 (ii) What is the highest percent identity with the query sequence with the enzyme name Biliverdin Reductase: 54% From what organism: Microcystis aeruginosa (strain NIES-843) , and Nostoc sp. (strain PCC 7120 / UTEX 2576) MCB 120L Experiment 8D write-up Spring 2011 Question 1: Based on the percent identities, what putative function would be assigned to the ORF of the srl1784 gene locus ( ie the query sequence)? Homoserine Reductase from M. aeruginosa has a 55% identity with the ORF while Biliverdin Reductase also from M. aeruginosa has a 54% identity with the ORF; is the 1 % difference a significant difference, or are these essentially the same? If 1 % is considered a large enough difference, then a putative function or are these essentially the same?...
