CRISPR-Cas9 Technology And Personalized Medicine – What About Canada?

understood that the technology could be modified and used more generally to edit the DNA of any plant or animal. Today CRISPR-Cas9 is a powerful and precise gene editing tool made of two molecules: a protein that cuts DNA (Cas9) and a custom made length of RNA that works like a GPS for locating the exact spot that needs to be edited (CRISPR). Once inside the target cell nucleus, these two molecules work together and begin editing the DNA. After the desired changes are made these cells use a repair mechanism...

nucleus or the mitochondria. 5. What is a nucleotide? A nucleotide is an organic molecule made up of a nucleotide base, a five-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose) and at least one phosphate group. Nucleotides make up the basic units of DNA and RNA molecules. 6. Name the 4 bases found in DNA. Which ones are purines? Which ones are pyrimidines? Adenine and guanine are the purines. Thymine and cytosine are the pyrimidine. 7. Which bases are complimentary? How many hydrogen bonds...

Genetics Test Review

of the sugar-phosphates ahead of the fork to relieve stress. Lagging Chain: 1) Goes in the opposite direction of the leading chain and is discontinuous. 2) RNA Primer supports the incoming nucleotides. 3) DNA Polymerase III brings in the correct nucleotide. 4) DNA Polymerase I attaches bases to the gap left by the RNA primer. 5) Ligase then joins this base to the pre-existing sugar-phosphate chains via phosphodiester bonds. 6) DNA Polymerase II then checks the strand for...

single nucleotide, including sugar, phosphate and base. 2. Complete the table below to show the pairings of the bases in DNA: Purine | Pyrimidine | Adenine | Thymine | Guanine | Cytosine | 3. Where would one find the base uracil? RNA, it replaces thymine 4. In the space below, draw a single strand of three nucleotides, naming the bonds between them and showing the correct relative position of these bonds. The sequence of these bases makes up the genetic code. The red...

Physico-Chemical Properties of Dna

nitrogenous base. A nucleotide is made of a phosphate + a sugar + a nitrogenous base. In DNA, the nucleotide is a deoxyribonucleotide (in RNA, the nucleotide is a ribonucleotide). * Phosphoric acid Gives a phosphate group. * Sugar: Deoxyribose, which is a cyclic pentose (5-carbon sugar). Note: the sugar in RNA is a ribose. Carbons in the sugar are noted from 1' to 5'. A nitrogen atom from the nitrogenous base links to C1' (glycosidic link)...

Bio 101 Week 2 Reflection

that are found on an x or y chromosome and can lead to sex linked disorders. Chapter Ten introduces the structure and replication of cells through the flow of genetic information from DNA to RNA. Also in this chapter an organism’s phenotype will be discussed. The DNA in an organism along with its RNA is nucleic acids (called nucleotides); these long chain polymer units(polynucleotides) make up the genetic profile of the organism. When these organisms reproduce a complete set of instructions...

contents of tubes? Vortex-genie 8. Then, why are the tubes centrifuged? The centrifuge is used to separate the RNA from the rest of the cell contents. 9. Name the three main types of RNA in the sample now:             a. messenger RNA (mRNA)             b. transfer RNA (tRNA)             c. ribosomal RNA (rRNA) 10. What makes the mRNA different from the other types of RNA? It is the only type of RNA that reflects gene expression and ends with a poly-A tail, a sequence of adenines. 11. What are used to...

because the sides are attracted to each other and with out the Single Strand Binding Proteins they would move back together) f. The Replication Fork is formed with the Leading and Lagging strands. g. In the leading strand, RNA Primase moves along nucleotides and coats with a RNA Primer that will be used as a homing beacon for the DNA Polymerase. h. DNA polymerase synthesizes the new DNA by adding complementary nucleotides to the template strand. i. DNA polymerase attaches post primase to DNA nucleotides...

macromolecules of life

composed of still smaller constituent parts a 5C sugar, a tri-phosphate group and a N-containing base, both of which is covalently bonded to the sugar. Nucleic acids are divided into two groups 1) Deoxyribonucleicacids (DNA) and 2) Ribonucleicacids (RNA). 1) DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACIDS (DNA) These molecules are the essential components of the genes located on our chromosomes. As their name implies, the sugar in this group of nucleic acids is DEOXYRIBOSE (Slide 24). Covalently linked to deoxyribose, are...

Earth? -A universal genetic code applies to the hypotheses about the origin of life because even though organisms are physically different, they are genetically similar based on the genetic code. How are self-replicating molecules, such as RNA molecules in the “RNA World” hypothesis, essential to the most popular hypotheses about the origin of life on Earth? -Self-replicating molecules are essential to the most popular hypotheses about the origin of life on Earth because these molecules can explain...
