  • RNA Polymerases

    “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…

  • Protein Synthesis: The Two Types Of DNA And RNA

    made up of smaller units called nucleotides. These nucleotides play a significant role in creating important structures found in our body such as deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly referred to as DNA, and ribonucleic acid or RNA. (Erster, Lecture 4 Chapter 5) Ribonucleic acid is then categorized into two types of RNA: mRNA and tRNA (there are other types but the ones mainly discussed in protein synthesis only involved these two). The DNA and RNA are partners that work together to make protein…

  • Rna Synthesis Essay

    transcriptional machinery of RNA Polymerase I in the oocyte Experimental Approach: Aim1: To address the roles of the Hira complex in rRNA transcription and embryonic development The Hira histone chaperone complex is an evolutionarily conserved complex, which is composed of Hira, Ubn1 and Cabin1, and cooperates with the histone chaperone Asf1a to mediate H3.3-specific binding and chromatin deposition12,13. I previously demonstrated the critical roles of maternal Hira /H3.3 on paternal…

  • RNA Synthesis Essay

    Transcription in prokaryotes requires the formation of the holoenzyme RNA polymerase (holoRNAP), which consists of a core enzyme and a σ subunit. The core enzyme consists of 5 subunits: 2 copies of α, which assemble the enzyme and bind regulatory factors; one copy of β, which has polymerase activity of RNA chain initiation and elongation; one copy of β’, which binds nonspecifically to DNA; and omega. An active center where RNA synthesis occurs is located within the DNA binding channel formed by…

  • What Is The CRISPR-Cas9 System?

    The CRISPR-Cas9 system is derived from a bacterial adaptive immune system. The acronym stands for clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats, which are sequences of DNA that read the same forward as backwards. In between these are sequences of DNA known as protospacers indicative of particular bacteriophages encountered by bacteria. These sequences are then used as a template for RNAs capable of recognizing viral DNA within a cell and as a means to bind the endonuclease CRISPR…

  • CRISPR/Cas9 System: A Genetic Analysis

    As stated previously, all that needs to be done is the guide RNA needs to lead the Cas9 enzyme to a particular location on a gene. An article in the New York Times stated that the system was so easy, that it could be mastered by a graduate student within an hour. This is a huge breakthrough when one takes into consideration how long it would have taken in the past to edit a gene. The same New York Times article states that editing a gene would once take the time of an entire PhD thesis. Overall,…

  • Neoplasm Case Study

    cancer has been made evident the use in studying this circadian clock gene is quite clear and the need for a more solid grasp on its mechanism is necessary to understand a possible treatment in cancer. For this experiment we chose a knockdown experiment through RNA interference (RNAi) of the timeless gene in order to observe the phenotypic outcome in planarian when this gene is absent. This is a known procedure for disturbing the function of genes in planarian (4). We made a double stranded…

  • Deoxyribonucleic Acid Research Paper

    Deoxyribonucleic acid consists of a phosphate and deoxyribose backbone, and four different nitrogenous bases. These bases are adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. Ribonucleic acid, the molecule formed in the transcription of DNA, is made up of phosphate, ribose, and adenine, guanine, cytosine, and uracil. The backbone of DNA consists of a phosphate bonded to a deoxyribose molecule. Deoxyribose is a sugar containing five carbons, and it is called deoxyribose as it is missing an oxygen atom on…

  • Cyanoethoxy Research Paper

    2-cyanoethyl carbonochloridate (S.27b ) or 1-((2-cyanoethoxy)carbonyl)-3-methyl-1H -imidazolium chloride (S.27c) (Figure X.X.X), which were synthesized by the modified procedures of Merk et al. (2000) and Wielser et al. (1996). Deproetection was accomplished under nonprotic conditions using non-nucleophilic strong base 1,8-diazabicylco [5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU). The mechanism of deprotection follows -elimination pathway. Another advantage of this protection strategy is that the deprotection of…

  • Protein Structure Hypothesis

    so much behind the buildup of protein sequences. By the end of 2007, there have been forty four,272 protein structures deposited within the protein data Bank (PDB) SECONDARY STRUCTURE: Secondary structure is that the native arrangement of a polypeptide’s backbone atoms while not relevance the conformations of its aspect chains.It is a group of techniques in bioinformatics to predict the native secondary structures of proteins and RNA sequences based mostly solely on data of…
