Gene Expression

Gene Expression Introduction: Escherichia coli are capable of using lactose as their sole carbon source. E. coli produces the enzyme β-galactosidase to digest the lactose into glucose and galactose. However, it would be inefficient to produce enzymes when there is no lactose available, or if there is a more readily-available energy source available such as glucose. Therefore there must be something controlling the expression of this enzyme. The purpose of the experiment is to determine whether...

11: How Genes are Controlled I. How and Why Genes are Regulated? A. Gene Expression in Differentiated Cells 1. What does it mean to say that the cells in your body are differentiated? It means that the cells in the body are specialized to do certain tasks with some genes in a cell turned off and some genes in the cell turned on. 2. The great differences among cell types is due to the selective expression of its genes. Define gene expression...

Mastermix Case Study

RTEC. Compliance will also be checked by the measurement of urinary markers before and after the intervention, such alkylresorcinol. 24 hour urine samples are used for this purpose. 2.5 PBMC and RNA isolation To be able to measure the PBMC gene expression, PBMCs first need to be isolated from the whole blood of the participants. This is the first step prior to RNA isolation, cDNA synthesis and finally qPCR. Whole blood was collected in BD vacutainer© cell preparation tubes. The BD vacutainer© CPT...

Plant Hormones

seed dormancy in some plants which require stratification or light to induce germination. 4. Stimulates enzyme production (a-amylase) in germinating cereal grains for mobilization of seed reserves. 5. Induces maleness in dioecious flowers (sex expression). 6. Can cause parthenocarpic (seedless) fruit development. 7. Can delay senescence in leaves and citrus fruits. Cytokinins: Nature of Cytokinins Cytokinins are compounds with a structure resembling adenine which promote cell division and...

Breast Cancer Research Outline

cell, several genes change (mutate) and the cell becomes defective. There are two general types of gene mutations. One type, dominant mutation, is caused by an abnormality in one gene in a pair. An example is a mutated gene that produces a defective protein that causes the growth-factor receptor on a cell's surface to be constantly "on" when, in fact, no growth factor is present. The result is that the cell receives a constant message to divide. This dominant "gain of function gene" is often called...

plant products: soybean, corn, canola, rice, and cotton seed oil. Animal products have also been developed , although as of July 2010 none are currently on the market. In 2006 a pig was engineered to produce omega- 3fatty acids through the expression of roundworm gene. Researchers have also developed a genetically – modified breed pigs that are able to absorb plant phosphorus more efficiently and as a consequence the phosphorus content their manure is reduced by as much as 60% (Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia...

Lab report 3

morphological changes, changes in gene expression, and changes in protein synthesis. In the past weeks, we were able to conclude that HL-60 cells treated with DMSO and HL-60 cells treated with PMA will differentiate into granulocytes and monocytes upon treatment (1). We were also able to observe that both types of treated cells will express the beta-actin gene because it is a housekeeping gene. However, only HL-60 cells treated with PMA will express the MMP-9 gene by their RNA. The purpose of this...

Sun" Questions 1. What are some differences between Judy and Mariah that might make Judy more "at risk" for skin cancer than Mariah? (2 points) It is possible that Judy’s mother may have had a cancerous mole and could have passed on to Judy a mutated gene of the tumor suppressor. 2. What observations did Judy make concerning her mole? How could they have used the ABCDE’s of skin cancer assessment to further assist their observations? (2 points) She observed that her mole had become itchy, it had grown...

Statement of Purpose

studies on a potassium channel protein which is observed to be linked to many autoimmune disorders,. I am looking forward to publish my work. My Masters’ research focuses on gene expression levels of caterpillar and their defense mechanism when fed on soybean plants. The work is in progress to study various defense gene expressions by running micro array analysis and qRT pcr analysis. I have been a Research Assistant for a year and presently working as a teacher assistant and teach microbiology laboratory...
