  • Structure And Replication Of DNA

    Structure and Replication of DNA Introduction The structure and replication of DNA is important for organisms to develop and survive as it what has the control over all of bodies functions. DNA is converted in to messages that are used to produce proteins molecules, important for bodily functions. Without DNA genes would not be able to performs tasks such as telling the body how to create proteins which in turn would not allow proteins to create enzymes, hormones and other important chemicals. Structure Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA is a chemical that carries all of the genetic information in all living organisms, however it is organised differently in each species. Depending on how each organism organises their DNA they are put in to…

  • Mitophagy Lab Report

    Concentration In order to observe drug treatment longevity experiment in a certain time period, we need to find a proper concentration of drugs for 5 to 6 days’ longevity. There are two chemical drugs we would use for detection. Phenanthroline can highly induce mitochondrial fragmentation and mitochondrial dysfunctions. Another drug, CPX (ciclopirox olamine) is relatively more targeted at tumor cells. The gradient concentrations of drugs were added into agar where worms live on. For…

  • Rosalind Franklin's Theory Of Protein Analysis

    1. Using Rosalind Franklin’s X-ray pictures James and Francis redeveloped the Watson - Crick Model that shows that a DNA molecule forms a double-helix. Together they hypothesised that if the strands were separated lose floating nucleotides would attach to their complimentary nitrogenous bases forming a template, which is the process of DNA replication. Their findings were published in the scientific nature journal April 1953. Crick had made an important discovery to the understanding of protein…

  • Prokaryote Dna Synthesis Lab Report

    Prokaryote DNA replication is a semi conservative, bidirectional, template driven process. The phrase ‘semi-conservative’ refers to the fact that the newly synthesised double stranded DNA is made up of one parental (existing) strand, and one newly synthesised strand. The parental duplex is not ‘conserved’ as an entity. This was proved by the Meselson-Stahl experiment by replicating E.Coli in different mediums of of different Nitrogen isotopes. The results consisted of half of normal weight and…

  • Francis And Watson's DNA Chapter Summary

    a) Francis crick- Discovered the structure of that DNA that it's shaped like a twisted ladder and understood the way it replicates. b) Rosalind Franklin- She discovered the dimension of DNA strand and that the phosphate group was on the outside of the helical structure. c) James Watson- Together with Francis they discovered the structure of DNA and that he also discovered that hydrogen bonds were the correct length and were straight. 2. All of the three scientist were interested on working on…

  • Universality Of Dna Research Paper

    conceive an American society like the one we are living in today. The discovery of the structure of DNA marks a significant landmark in medical history. This has open the doors to a new realm that deepen our understanding of biological systems and promises a future that once was an abstract idea in science fiction novels. A challenge that my generation is facing is answering whether genetic modifications are ethical. Despite the ongoing debates, it is remarkable that this type of science is…

  • Jack Szostak Telomerase Analysis

    the key milestones in our understanding of DNA replication in eukaryotes as they helped us figure out how the ends of linear chromosomes are replicated. There discovery of telomeres and telomerase did not only fil A DNA molecule is made up of two strands of polynucleotides which can be described as anti-parallel meaning one strand is moving from a 3’ to 5’ direction…

  • Rolling Circle Mitosis

    In rolling circle replication, a nicking protein called relaxase identifies a specific sequence on the DNA and makes a “nick” or cut at that location. The nick is created by the protein and allows the DNA to unwind and continue the process. Once the DNA opens forming an open complex from there a lagging strand will develop along the 3’ template strand due to the polarity and orientation of the strands. A leading strand will emerge and DNA polymerase enlists nucleotides to pair with the exposed…

  • The MMR System

    stops and a severe distortions in the conformation of DNA at the mismatch site occurs. The clamp has numerous hydrophobic and charged residues, which is consistent with a role in dimerizing with the charged residues of the clamp of MSH6. In addition, it may work to stabilize the highly unfavorable state of DNA when a mismatch is recognized. The positively charged residues such as lysine and arginine can form ion pairs with the negatively charged phosphate groups on the DNA backbone. Furthermore,…

  • The Double Helix DNA Theory

    1. Francis Crick Crick discovered the relative distances of the repetitive elements in the DNA molecule, and the dimensions of the monoclinic unit cell which indicated that the molecule was in two matching parts, running in opposite directions. He also, in collaboration with Watson discovered the material that our genes are made of and put forward the model of the double helix DNA structure which included the measurements of the angels formed by different chemical bonds. Crick in collaboration…
