Analysis Of The Origami Of Dna

Decent Essays
In Today’s Science article titled The Origami of DNA it was about how Genome is organized in looping. Genetic material stored in the nucleus in a compressed way that let on amounts of data to be stored in bitty places. Society had very clear perspective on how genomes were stored until recent times. Researchers have found approach that helps find the grouping of the human genome in three dimensions. Researchers discovered much of the genome was package into loops. The loops transform into huge domains. The Method the Researchers perform shows genes that are distant for one another in the genome can be stored closely together this allows the genes to have similarly. Human genome contain huge numbers of genetic codes by DNA that grants a cell …show more content…
One for instead was “Enhancer”. Enhancers change how active genes are. Enhancer relates to the article by having an enhancer close to a different type of genes it can show whether the genes are active or silenced. Closeness relates to the folding and looping of DNA.Another word is “Chromatin Modification” The alteration of DNA which can determine how tightly genes can be stored. In Chromatin Modification DNA is surrounded by proteins called “Histones”. Histones was another word I didn’t know until I read this article. Histones have a positive charge. Therefor when DNA is near a Histones the two will most likely attracted. The stronger the histone is the tighter the DNA will be bounded. In the Article it also says histones can tune this association by tweaking pieces of the histones called histones tails. The Last word I didn’t understand was “Ligases”. Ligases put together DNA near other.DNA that are far for each other will not be stitched. DNA is distant from proteins and genome one area is close to another piece of DNA. Ligases has a lot to do with 3-D mapping and has a lot to do with DNA and …show more content…
The article had a lot to do with DNA and genes and how looping and folding of other.DNA allows cells to function correctly. Cells are basically a huge map for proteins and different things. In the Article shows how there were a lot of experiment taking place into the origami of DNA.Another Experiment that took place in the article was the HI-C method they found that there was 4.9 billion points in the genome in one segment. Looping were combine with histone that have been turn on by genes. At the same time the loops contained tiny parts where a protein is called CTCF.Researcher found large parts of gene looped together. There were a lot of experiments that took place in my article talking about looping and folding DNA.They also talk about Y chromosome and X chromosome with the 3-D experiment. Folding happen in cancer cells they can use 3-D maps to help find a cure. This is just some of the experiments they did in the article I

    Thanks to biology, scientists now are able to answers these questions. It is all in the genes or more accurately the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). DNA is long chains of nucleotides that carries genetic information that is very crucial in human development. Based on the molecular structure of DNA, it is made of two nucleotide strands and arranged in such manner in which they coil…

    The enzyme called transposase cut the target sequence and generates sticky ends. The transposon which is cut out is then ligated to acceptor sequence. There are also DNA transposons such as Tn3 and IS1 which copy themselves into target site rather than cut/paste and cause replication of donor…

    DNA produced mRNA in transcription in which the mRNA will be decoded to build a polypeptide chain of amino acids in translation. This process is one of the most complicated tasks that cells can perform using a great deal of energy to do so. To translate mRNA into a protein it requires a series of detailed steps and molecules including initiation, elongation and termination. After transcription is complete the mRNA leaves the nucleus and travels into the cytoplasm. Translation may occur in either the cytoplasm or the rough endoplasmic reticulum.…

    The bases of a nucleotide also determines what other bases it is paired with on the double helix. Adenine and thymine usually bond and cytosine and guanine are usually bonded together. The nucleotides that make up these pairs are called complementary bases. "The sequence of bases for rung to rung along the ladder stores the genetic information contained in the DNA molecule." Proteins determine largely the nature of the traits that are present in an organism.…

    In the 1960’s two scientists named François Jacob and Jacques Monod explored how the regulation of transcription of DNA affects the enzyme levels in a cell. They found this information through experiments in eubacteria and eukaryotes. According to Kireeva (2013) “However, the DNA-dependent RNA polymerase proved elusive until 1960, when it was independently identified in bacteria by Hurwitz and Stevens and in plants by the Bonner group” (p. 8325). There were also many experiments after these in which the scientists focused mostly on the mechanisms of the RNA polymerization (Kireeva, 2013). Kireeva also stated in her article that a group called the Chamberlin group focused on the pauses by E. coli RNA polymerase the group also focused on the…

    As a population, organisms look different. Genetic variations and phenotypic differences are a direct result of the processes of transcription and translation at the molecular level. In the paragraphs that follow I will discuss how the processes at the molecular level influence traits that we see at the species level. A human has 23 chromosomes, each of these chromosomes are a housing unit for DNA. DNA, also known as deoxyribonucleic acid, is a simple molecule found in all living organisms.…

    Degenerate oligonucleotides are used as primers in PCR to amplify fragments of the gene. Each amplified fragment contains a region of homology with the appropriate adjacent gene fragment. Fragments are mixed, similarly to DNA shuffling, in the absence of primer and allowed to extend until the full length gene has been amplified. Though this technique has proven successful, it can be tedious with multiple fragments and introduce bias during each round of PCR amplification. Recently with the advances in DNA synthesis, an entire gene can be synthesized with the proper degenerate sites.…

    RNA systems were then acted upon by natural selection and eventually led to greater complexity such as DNA. These ideas are also backed by evidence. For example, during the 1980s, scientists Cech and Altman conducted research that proved that RNA molecules can act as enzymes/catalysts. This was also known as the discovery of the ribozyme. Also, further evidence shows there are still RNA enzymes in use in organisms today.…
