82115 Phylogenetic Trees Friday Auust 21 2 15 1222 PM Learning Objectives Understand what phylogenetic trees do and do not communicate Be able to construct a simple phylogenetic tree based on either set of morphological or molecular data Be able to interpret a tree to inform one about the evolutionary history of a group of organisms Be able to properly interpret bootstrap values as well as branch lengths and nodes IN THE NEWS Cyanobacteria formerly called quotbluegreen algaeII are relatively simple primitive life forms closely related to bacteria Typically much larger than bacteria they photosynthesize like algae Depending upon the species cyanobacteria can occur as single cells filaments of cells or colonies Cyanobacteria contain a characteristic pigment which gives the group their bluegreen coloration 0 Common in freshwater environment39s 0 Microcystin aeruginosa is an example and was found in Toledo OH drinking water 0 Exposure to large amounts enlarged liver and spleen Liver toxin Inhibits protein phosphatases by binding covalently to protein phosphatases and disrupting cellular control processes I Microcystins are hepatotoxic able to cause serious damage to the liver Once ingested microcystin travels to the liver via the bile acid transport system where most is stored though some remains in the blood stream and may contaminate tissue 0 Active boiling will only decrease M levels by about 50 and it will create an aerosol Harmful Algal Blooms 0 High light warm conditions when elevated levels of Phosphorus present Caused by agricultural and urban runoff 0 Why do some years have very low HABs and then some really high 0 Less runoff into lake because those years had a drought so there wasn t excess agricultural runoff from fertilizer This tells us agricultural runoff is the main cause for HABs over any type of runoff Biomagnification O Toxin becomes more concentrated as it moves up the food chain 0 Fish gt Birdsducks gt Eagles Eagles are most affected and die Primary consumers of toxin were not significantly impacted 0 What makes cyanobacteria so toxic We don t know Bioaccumulation 0 As one organism ages the toxin becomes more concentrated because it builds up faster than it is excreted Phylogenetic Trees 0 Lebensbaum Tree of Life 0 Taxa a major grouping of living organisms 0 Node Intersection Common ancestor 0 Root Origin of tree 0 Clade monophyletic group A group of organisms of a common ancestor and all its lineal descents 0 In constructing a phylogenetic tree only use homologous structures otherwise you will create a tree that reflects convergence when using analogous structures not the evolutionary history of the organisms Biology Page 1 nallngeuis Structures StreamlineAppendegesj Hemulegnus S39truetures Penfedeefy

wings from a common anteater with wings but they did inherit forelimbs frem e emrnein ancester with ferellim Us Sell hieuee Eiiricll Creeerlile F i elimbg E will WE i3 inte Wings Fijlur limbs re lywed 0 Mitochondria have their own DNA which has to do with the theory that mitochondria evolved separately from cells mDNA is only inherited through the mother whereas nuclear DNA is inherited through both parents 0 Bats are not just flying mice because their clades split from a common ancestor in the morphological topology tree and they are in very different clades in the mitochondrial topology tree 0 Bootstrapping way of quantifying the likelihood that a given clade on a phylogenetic tree is well supported 0 Tells you what percent of the time other trees will show the same clade grouping Tells you how many trees agree Only trust trees with 85 bootstrap values 0 Branch lengths are a second way to evaluate evolutionary relationships Short branch recent common ancestor Biology Page 2 82415 Viruses Monday August 24 2 15 1222 PM IN THE NEWS Are Georgians worried about contracting the Bubonic plague 0 Dengue fever quotBreakbonequot fever Symptoms high fever rash muscle and joint pain 0 Viruses are the simplest biological entities o Retrovirus has RNA instead of DNA and uses reverse transcriptase to make a DNA copy of the RNA genome More enzymes allow the DNA to splice into the host genome of the host cell and can control the host Ex HIV HPV 0 ERVs are viral material that is incorporated into the genome They stay put so we can determine where in the genome the ERV is placed and compare DNA similarities between species They are like genetic signatures o Viruses mutate and evolve muchhhh faster than prokaryotes and eukaryotes They can also jump between species Flu typically pass between pigs fowl and humans 0 Bacteriophage are viruses that bind to and attack bacteria Can these eliminate antibiotic resistant bacterial infections 0 Question Will bacteria quickly develop resistance to bacteriophage therapy NO because the phages can mutate faster than bacteria so they can adopt new ligands that will match 0 Ligands on virus bind to receptors on bacteria break their cell wall and insert their genome into the bacteria cause bacteria to lyse and die 0 Penicillin is complex molecule but resistance can be built up to it rather quickly 0 Even if receptors on bacteria are evolving and changing the viruses39 ligands can evolve and change too o Recombinant phage therapy viruses are constantly modifying themselves to keep up with the changes in bacteria Biology Page 1 8262015 Prokaryotes amp Eukaryotes Wednesday August 26 2015 1228 PM Learning Objectives Know the defining features that distinguish eukaryotes and prokaryotes Eukaryotes have a nucleus more complex DNA larger ribosomes and organelles Be able to define the Archaea and know how to distinguish them from bacteria Bacteria have peptidoglycan cell wall archaea don39t Archaea have backwards glycerol in cell membrane which phosphates on outside What roes do bacteria play in human biology Gut flora protective barriers to pathogens What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a bacterial cell wall Cell wall gives it rigidity and prevents it from bursting due to osmotic pressure Rigid cell walls prevent them from ingesting food so they release digestive enzymes t hen absorb it o What is meant by antibiotic resistancequot and by what mechanisms can bacteria become resistant to antibiotics Bacteria replicate by binary fission rapidly reproducing more successful mutated resistant copies 0 Antibiotic may be destroyed by an enzyme 0 Be sequestered or inactivated by a different enzyme 0 Be actively pumped out of the cell by a third enzyme 0 Prokaryotes no nucleus or major organelles Appear simple but are actually complex 0 Bacteria and Archaea 0 Eukaryotes nuclei and organelles 0 Animals plants fungi protists 0 STUDY SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES

acids I Bacteria Cell wall and peptidoglycan wall located outside plasma membrane Peptidoglycan wall gives rigidity to cell wall and is permeable to small molecules Archaea no peptidoglycan III Primary role of bacterial cell wall prevent cell from bursting due to osmotic pressure that us caused as water molecules cross the membrane 0 Prokaryotic vs Eukaryotic ribosomes I Eukaryotic ribosomes have much greater molecular weight than prokaryotic ribosomes I Based on sequences of genes that code for SSU small subunit ribosomal RNA Carl Woese proposed that Archaea were significantly different from the bacteria and were closer to the eukaryotes III Why did he choose SSU ribosomes to develop a phylogenetic tree for all living things on earth These molecules each have over 1000 data points Also the ribosomes function the same way in each class meaning it s a homologous structure that every living thing has III His Goal What classification was the last universal common ancestor LUCA III Ester and ether links deny the hypothesis that eukaryotes evolved from archaea 0 Clicker Question What is not a function of the prokaryotic cell wall 0 prevent small molecules from entering the cell 0 Rigid cell walls of prokaryotes prevent them from ingesting food Instead they release digestive enzymes which break down quotfoodquot which can go through the cell wall and are taken up by the cell 0 Bacteriophages Viruses that dissolve bacterial cell wall and inject their genome into a host cell 0 Antibiotics such as penicillin block the formation of the peptidoglycan wall 0 Drug Resistant Bacteria O Antibiotic may be destroyed by an enzyme 0 Be sequestered or inactivated by a different enzyme 0 Be actively pumped out ofthe cell by a third enzyme 0 Prokaryotes can exchange genes directly between 2 cells 0 Conjugation One way in which genes can be exchanged between bacteria is conjugation When this occurs a physical connection conjugation tube or pillus is made between two cells The DNA on a plasmid is duplicated and the copied DNA is transferred Pilli are needed to exchange genes because the bacterial cell wall prevents two bacterial cells from fusing their membranes and exchanging genes Biology Page 3 8282015 Eukaryotic Origins Friday August 28 2015 1229 PM What are the evolutionary relationships between Archaea Bacteria amp Eukaryotes Eukaryotes came from some combo of archaea and bacteria Chloroplasts were a cyanobacteria that was ingested by an archaebacteria Mitochondria were alpha proto bacterium ingested by archaea Be able to distinguish between the four competing hypotheses regarding the origin of eukaryotes How would you describe the chimeric nature of the eukaryote cell The quotHydrogen Hypothesis suggests that before there were eukaryotes with nuclei that could ingest bacteria a union was formed between a bacterium and an archaean cell Under anaerobic conditions the bacterium produced gaseous hydrogen as a waste product which in turn was a food source for the archaean This led to a symbiosis between the two as the archaean became dependent on the bacterium The two partners now functioned as a single organism The eukaryotes were born Are mitochondria and plastids the descendants of bacteria How and when did they become established in eukaryotes 2 billion years ago The conventional endosymbiosis model of eukaryote origins suggests that early in evolutionary history a protoeukaryote existed complete with nucleus ER and the ability to ingest prey This protoeukaryote next ingested a bacterium that became a mitochondrion and later on a subset of these protists ingested a cyanobacterium that became the chloroplast Answer to in the News Are Georgians worried about contracting Bubonic Plague O Buboes swollen inflamed areas around lymph nodes Where it derives its name Yersina Pestis is a gramnegative anaerobic bacteria that causes plague Black Death may be traced back to gerbils from Asia gt fleas gt people Fewer than 20 cases Bubonic plague per yr Squirrels can carry plague too and fleas transmit to campers People who camped in Yosemite this summer contracted it 0 Disease prevalence is related to the close proximity in which you live with small mammals 0000 0 Eukaryotic Origins 0 Prokaryote vs Eukaryote o Symbiogenesis merging of two separate organisms to form a single organism a Threewdomains E I

a subgroup of the Archaea the eocytes Milnerneyet II 2014 Todayf this subgroup is known as the Crenarcha eota Three domains hypothesis Woese 1977 Biology Page 1 Eocyte hypothesis Lake 1984 O The Eocyte hypothesis suggests that eukaryotes evolved from a subgroup of the Archaea that post dates the diversification of Archaebacteria the eocytes Today this subgroup is known as the Crenarchaeota Ring of Life hypothesis Lake and Rivera 2004 O The ring of life hypothesis postulates that eukaryotes arose from two lineages of prokaryotes one of which was archaebacterial and one of which was eubacterial and consequently it is the only monophyletic group although with symbiogenic origins 0 Also implies that eukaryotes are late to arise and are a secondary grouping of life whereas the two prokaryote groups are primary groupings Eukaryotes early hypothesis 0 The eukaryotesearly hypothesis implies that prokaryotes are derived from a eukaryotic ancestor We don39t know which hypothesis is correct 0 One thing that makes it hard to figure out is bc prokaryotic cells do LGT lateral gene transfer Genes change through transformation conjugation and transduction Plamid Donor V I j 7 39 L I

Transformation the uptake of naked DNA is a common mode of horizontal gene transfer that can mediate the exchange of any part of a chromosome this process is most common in bacteria that are naturally transformable typically only short DNA fragments are exchanged Conjugation the transfer of DNA mediated by conjugal plasmids or conjugal transposons requires cell to cell contact but can occur between distantly related bacteria or even bacteria and eukaryotic cells can transfer long fragments of DNA Transduction the transfer of DNA by phage requires that the donor and recipient share cell surface receptors for phage binding and thus is usually limited to closely related bacteria the length of DNA transferred is limited by the size of the phage head All chloroplasts we know today share a common ancestor with ONE cyanobacteria One ancient eukaryote ate a cyanobacteria and didn t digest it giving rise to all plants and algae we have today Evidence for bacteria becoming mitochondria o Ancestral cells wo mitochondria couldn39t utilize oxygen bc mitochondria use oxygen for oxidative phosphorylation to turn glucose into ATP How did an anaerobic species come in contact with aerobe They are facultative species that met in an anaerobic environment Facultative Can do anaerobic or aerobic respiration Biology Page 2 0 Once the bacteria turned into a mitochondria and realized it could make ATP it wanted to keep the ATP it made so the cell could use the ATP too 0 How did this symbiosis between bacteria and cell get established in the first place I We don t know I Hydrogen hypothesis III Anaerobic methanogen methaneproducing archaea formed symbiosis with facultative alpha proteo bacterium to give rise to mitochondria III Ancient earth marine ecosystem was anaerobic but cyanobacteria pumped out oxygen as waste of photosynthesis so there was increasing amts of 02 Also there was lots of H2 as a waste product from the bacteria that archaea liked to eat Archaea became dependent on bacterium under anaerobic conditions for its H2 food Eventually the connection became complete and the archaean completely encompassed bacterium Bacterium could still function over anaerobic or aerobic conditions They met under anaerobic conditions I Chimeric model Archaean Bacterium eukaryote bc the arcahaean was feeding off the bacterium I Endosymbiont Hypothesis most widely accepted III

grandparents be celebrating with a glass of red wine It has Resveratrol which is a polyphenol It activates the SIRT1 gene that protects the body from diabetes and aging Combats diabetes by preventing insulin resistance Also combats Alzheimers by protecting nerve cells from buildup of plaque Combats heart disease and cancer triggers apoptosis cell death Manufacturers are now selling resveratrol supplements with have extracts from a Japanese plant or red grapes But the dosage in supplements have not been effective too low People would have to consume 58 L of red wine a day to get the good effects found in animal studies New study says that low doses of resveratrol might be more effective than high dose The mice that were pre disposed to colon cancer did better with low doses than high 0 Carbon comprises less than 12 of 1 of the atmosphere 004 0 Carboniferous Period lasted from 360 300 mya 0 There was more coal being made back then from all the trees whereas none is being made now Why There weren39t termites or wood digesting fungi back then I Symbiosis in termites termite eats wood and bacteria and protists inside its gut have enzymes that break wood down and produce fixed carbon products which are returned to atmosphere 0 Atmospheric C02 observatory on top of Mauna Loa in Hawaii 0 2 ppmyr increase of atmospheric C02 0 There is more variability in the Mauna Loa data than the NZ data bc there are more plants in the northern hemisphere so the C02 output is greatly influenced by the seasonsphotosynthesis 0 Where does atmospheric C02 come from o Petroleum coal natural gas cement production 0 It39s not necessarily all bc of fossil fuels though 0 Marine organisms pull out most of C02 from atmosphere so do terrestrial organisms and trees Oceans absorb more C02 than they release 0 Plants get the C02 out of the atmosphere bc they have an enzyme with a high affinity for C02 RuBisCO o Rubisco is most abundant enzyme 0 C02 diffuses thru stomata primarily in

glucose level Control center Pancreas sends out insulin or glucagon Effector Liver converts glucose to glycogen or turns glycogen into glucose Hormones involved insulin and glucagon Cells of pancreas I Alpha cells sense when blood sugar levels have dropped too low GLUTl has a high affinity for glucose Low sugar glucose enters cell metabolized changes behavior of several different K channels which changes voltage and triggers influx of calcium THEN the vesicles containing glucagon bind to membrane and release glucagon to environment 0 If blood sugar is too low releases glucagon and stimulates liver to release glucose into bloodstream I Beta cells under high sugar levels glucose molecules are transported across membrane through GLUTZ and metabolized to form ATP Low sugar conditions not much is transported and not much ATP is formed Also in membrane we have K channels that are always open In high sugar conditions the ATP binds to K pump and restricts pump action which changes the resting potential of cell from 60mV to 40mV THEN a calcium channel opens up which allows for molecules to bind to membrane and release insulin 0 If blood sugar rises they secrete insulin stimulates liver to absorb glucose and store as glycogen 0 Liver Effector When stimulated by insulin it converts blood glucose into storage carb glycogen When stimulated by glucagon the liver breaks down glycogen into glucose molecules and release them into blood 0 Peptide hormone insulin triggers movement of glucose across cell membrane in an indirect manner Has specific shape and charge nsuin triggers muscle
