  • Nucleoporin Research Paper

    Transport of proteins into the nucleus occurs via a channel called nuclear pore complex (NPC), which penetrates and spans the nuclear envelope, a double membrane that separates the nucleus from the cytoplasm. The outer nuclear membrane is continuous with the endoplasmic reticulum, hence giving a shorter pathway for proteins to enter the nucleus; inner nuclear membrane contains proteins acting as binding site for nuclear lamina, indirectly providing support for the NPC as the primary function of…

  • Organic Macromolecule Essay

    Nucleotides contain a deoxyribose sugar, a phosphate group, and one of four nitrogenous bases. The four nitrogenous bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G), and cytosine (C). To construct DNA’s double helix, hydrogen bonds form between two complementary nitrogenous bases. These bonds only form between adenine and thymine and between guanine and cytosine (“DNA”). DNA contains the instructions on how to create and build an organism. A gene is a sequence of nucleotides that code for…

  • Assignment 3: CS696 Programming Problems In Bioinformatics

    looks like they are coiling around each other. DNA is made up from one of the four nucleotide, guanine (G), adenine (A), thymine (T), or cytosine (C). DNA strings are made up of alphabets {A, C, G, T}. 2. RNA strings: Known as RiboNucleic acid (RNA). Similar to DNA, RNA is also nucleic acid. But RNA usually found in the form of folded to it. RNA is also made up from one of the four nucleotide, guanine (G), adenine (A), uracil (U) and cytosine (C). RNA strings are made up of {A, C, G, U}. 3.…

  • Case Study Of Rosalind Franklin

    For the Carleton Prize for Biotechnology, I would like to nominate the brilliant scientist Rosalind Franklin. Her crystallographic work at King’s College, London was a crucial contribution to the double-helix model of DNA discovered by James Watson and Francis Crick (Gregory, 2002). Her contributions to the scientific community are still being quoted today and without the discovery of the structure of DNA, present day scientific projects such as The Genome project would not have been possible…

  • KRAS Case Study

    suggesting the heterogeneity among TP53 mutations. One interesting thing is these codons contain CpG islands, and the presence of 5-methyl cytosine greatly enhances binding of a major cigarette smoke carcinogen, benzo[a] pyrene, diol epoxide to guanine, such that benzo[a]pyrene, diol epoxide selectively forms adducts at TP53 hot spots [Denissenko et al.,…

  • Deoxyribonucleic Acid Synthesis

    new cells. Copying or replication of a long length of DNA is challenging when a cell divides, but a special set of enzymes correctly and quickly carries the process out. The base of DNA may be any one of the four types in a nucleotide: thymine(T), guanine (G), cytosine (C), or adenine (A). The double strand of DNA is held together by hydrogen bonds. Ribonucleic Acid better known as RNA is a protein single strand composed of molecules and its nucleotides contain ribose. This is another type of…

  • Cell Signaling And Cell Transduction Essay

    This property distinguishes them from small, monomeric G proteins. The guanine nucleotide-binding site is present on the G subunit. Replacement of GDP by GTP, following interaction with an activated GPCR, results in a conformational change in the G subunit. In its GTP-bound conformation, the G subunit has a low affinity for G…

  • Genetic Disorders Research Paper

    The four nitrogen containing bases also stand for Adenine, Guanine, Thymine, and Cytosine. DNA has many different jobs that it has to do constantly to keep the body going. Certain genes in the body are controlled to be turned on or off, because sometimes we don’t need every single gene at all times. Therefore, DNA…

  • The Importance Of Gene Editing

    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1) and I believe the word was ATGCU. The primary or canonical, nucleobases are cytosine (DNA and RNA), guanine (DNA and RNA), adenine (DNA and RNA), thymine (DNA) and uracil (RNA), abbreviated as C, G, A, T, and U, respectively with their ability to selectively bind formed the basis of life on earth. In 2012 with the discovery of CRISPR/Cas9 science acquired the ability to insert, delete and replace DNA…
