1. Using terms from the list below, fill in the blanks in the following brief description of the experiment with Streptococcus pneumoniae that identified which biological molecule carries heritable genetic information. Some terms may be used more than once. Cell-free extracts from S-strain cells of S. pneumoniae were fractionated to __________________ DNA, RNA, protein, and other cell components. Each fraction was then mixed with __________________ cells of S. pneumoniae . Its ability to change these into cells with __________________ properties resembling the __________________ cells was tested by injecting the mixture into mice. Only the fraction containing __________________ was able to __________________ the __________________ cells to __________________ (or __________________ ) cells that could kill mice. carbohydrate lipid R-strain DNA nonpathogenic RNA identify pathogenic S-strain label purify transform 2.
