Molecular cloning: Principles gene 1 gene 2 2) Make a new piece of DNA gene 1 gene 2 1) Take DNA out of the nucleus cell 1 cell 2 gene 1 gene 2 3) Put new DNA into a test cell and grow copies gene 1 cell divides Daughter cells contain same DNA: Genes 1 and 2 have been cloned gene 2 insert new DNA

Molecular cloning: Applications Normal mouse embryo gene A missing remove a gene to see if anything works differently Loss of function gene is involved in giving the eye its colour eye Reporter gene add a gene that shows us when another gene is working gene is active in blue areas only Lineage tracing mark a group of cells to see where their daughter cells end up gene is passed on to cells all over the body

Tissue stem cells: Principles of renewing tissues Stem cell committed progenitors: - “transient amplifying cells” - multipotent - divide rapidly - no self-renewal stem cell: - self renew - divide rarely - high potency - rare specialized cells: - work - no division
