Unformatted text preview: ith these observations, we preoperatively diagnosed the tumor to be a ovary mature cystic teratoma of the “Homunculus” Qvarian X-ray Ovarian X-ray teeth Mass removed Teratoma, beyond the teeth and hair normally found within them, this one has a small arm that retains the grasping reflex: Fig. 18-18a Eye Antenna Wild type Fig. 18-18b Leg Mutant What turns genes on/off? Experiments with alternate fuel sources E.coli + glucose = glucose breakdown enzymes present ) E.coli + glucose & lactose = only glucose breakdown enzymes present ) CONCLUSION: E.coli has the genes that code for glucose breakdown enzymes but NOT for lactose breakdown enzymes glucose O glycolysis enzymes Lactose E.coli + lactose only Lactose breakdown enzymes produced AMENDED CONCLUSION: E.coli does have the genes that code for Lactose breakdown enzymes…….. …THEY ARE TURNED OFF!
