CHAPTER 24 1. Define or describe: autosomes, sex chromosomes, sex-linked, X-linked, carrier. 
 Autosomes- Out of the 23 pairs of chromosomes, 22 are called autosomes and the one one pair is called sex chromosomes(below) Sex Chromosomes- X and Y chromosomes that determine a persons sex. XX (female) XY(male) Sex- linked- traits that are controlled by the genes on the sex chromosomes X- linked- found on the X chromosome. Most sex linked traits are X- linked. Carrier- Someone that does not express the gene but can pass it along to future generations 2. List inheritance patterns, signs and symptoms of the following conditions: red-green color 
 blindness, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Fragile X syndrome, HemophiliaAand B. 
 Red Green color blindness- x-linked recessive gene. More common in males than in females because they only need one recessive allele from the mother to show this. Duchenne muscular dystrophy- X-linked recessive disorder that is characterized by wasting away of muscles. Symptoms include wasting gait, toe walking, and frequent falls. Can be seen usually when a child starts walking and they don’t usually live past age 20.Acarrier mother can pass it along to a carrier daughter which is how this can stay in the population. Can cause muscles to look larger than they are due to the accumulation of of fibrous tissue in the muscles. Fragile X syndrome- Caused by an abnormal number of repeat sequences in the genome. Usually caused by inherited mental impairment. Results can range from learning disabilities to sever intellectual disabilities. Repeat of CGG instead ofATGC HemophiliaA- due to the absence of or minimal persence of a clotting factor known as factor VIII Hemophilia B- due to absence of clotting factor IX Hemophilia causes the blood to either not clot or clot very slowly. Not only do people with this bleed externally, they also bleed internally particularly around joints. 3. Define or describe: karyotype, Barr body (p. 486), nondisjunction, trisomy, monosomy, 
 syndrome, Down Syndrome, Klinefelter, Turner Syndrome, Poly-X syndrome, Jacobs syndrome, Williams syndrome, inv dup 15 syndrome,Alagille syndrome, chromosomal mutations, deletion, duplication, inversion, translocation, Gart gene, pedigree, amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling. 
 Karyotype- visual inspection of the chromosomes, can detect changes in chromosome number such as when this occurs in Down Syndrome. Barr Body- inactive X chromosome Nondisjunction- failure of chromosomes or chromatids to separate during meiosis. Results in trisomy or monosomy when fertilized Trisomy- when there is an additional chromosome Monosomy- when there is a lacking of one chromosome Syndrome- the association of several clinically recognizable features, signs, or symptoms that often occur together and are characteristic of a diseases or disorder Down Syndrome- Karyotype has an extra chromosome 21. Cause cause abnormal features, weigh gain, and intellectual disabilities. Klinefelter- When a male has 2 X chromosomes and one Y. Most don’t experience symptoms so they aren’t diagnosed but can experience speech and language delays. Some are given testosterone supplementation at the beginning of puberty. Turner Syndrome- When a women only receives one X chromosome. They can have malformed features like webbed neck, high palate, and small jaw. Usually don’t menstruate or undergo puberty. Usually no learning disabilities but nonverbal disabilities have been a symptom. Poly X Syndrome- When a female has more than one X chromosome. Usually there are some language delays but no intellectual disabilities and they are tall and skinny. Menstruate regularly. Jacobs Syndrome- When a male as two Y chromosomes and one X. This can occur because of nondisjunction. They are usually taller than average, suffer from persistent acne, and have speech and reading problems but other than that they are the same and XY males. Williams Syndrome- results from a loss of a smal piece of chromosome 7. Can have learning disabilities, great musical abilities, and are very social and they all have a lot of the same facial features. Inv dup 15 Syndrome- inverted duplication on chromosome 15. Low muscle tone, autistic characteristics, and a curve in the spine. Caused by translocation. Alagille Syndrome- caused by translocation. Individuals can have atypical fingernails, internal organs that don’t function properly. When information from 1 chromosome exchanges with another chromosomes that isn’t homologous. Chromosomal mutations- Occurs when chromosomes break. Deletion- when a single break causes a chromosome to lose an end piece or when two simultaneous breks lead to the loss of a internal chromosomal segment. Duplication- a chromosomal segment is repeated in the same chromosome or in a non-homologous chromosome. More than 2 alleles for certain traits. Inversion- segment joins in the direction opposite from normal. Translocation- the exchange of chromosomal segments beetween two non-homologous chromosomes. Gart Gene- protein coding gene Pedigree- family tree that shows whether or not future generations will be affected Amniocentesis- when amniotic fluid is removed from the uterus for testing or treatment. Chrioionic Villus Sampling- test done during early pregnancy that can find certain problems with the baby (fetus). CHAPTER 25 4. Describe the structure of DNA. List components of a nucleotide. List the 4 different types of bases associated with the DNAmolecule. 
 DNA- chain of nucleotides made up of a phosphate, pentose sugar, and a nitrogen containing base Nucleotide- complex made up of 3 subunits Bases- Adenine (A), Guanine (G), Thymine (T), and Cytosine (C). 5. What is complementary base-pairing? 
 Aalways pairs with T and G always pairs with C 6. Why is DNAreplication described as semiconservative? What is the role helicase? DNA
 polymerase? DNAligase? 
 Each daughter DNAmolecule consists of one new chain of nucleotides and one chain from the parent DNAmolecule Helicase- unwinds and unzips the double stranded DNA Polymerase- what the pairs are positioned and joined with Ligase- seals and breaks the sugar-phosphate backbone 7. Describe the structure of RNA. List components of the nucleotide and the 4 different bases. 
 Describe the functions of mRNA, tRNA, rRNA. 
 Structure- Nucleotide- complex of 3 subunits Bases- Adenine, Guanine, Uracil, and Cytosine mRNA- takes a message from the DNAto the ribosomes becasue DNA cannot leave the nucleus by itself so it is copied and messaged tRNA- transfers amino acids to ribosomes rRNA- makes up ribosomes along with proteins 8. Describe transcription. What is the role of RNApolymerase? 
 Takes place is the nucleus and a portion of the DNAserves as a template fro mRNAformation. Processing of mRNA, primary mRNA contains bases complementary to both intron and exon segments of DNA. 9. Describe translation. What is a ribosome?Apolyribosome? 
 Translation- Takes place in the cytoplasm and sequence of mRNA determines the sequence of amino acids in polypeptide. Leads to protein synthesis. Ribosome- site of protein synthesis Polyribosome- 10. How do exons differ from introns? 
 Exons are the portion of the gene that is expressed. Only exons result in protein product. Introns are intragene segments and are removed. 11. What is the genetic code? 
 a codon that is made up of 3 nucleotide bases 12. What is a codon? What is an anticodon? 
 Codon- Triplet of three bases that code for a specific amino acid There are 64 different mRNAcodons Anticodon- triplet of three bases complemetary to a specific codon of mRNA ex. Codon- CGG,Anticodon- GCC,Amino acid-Arginine 13. What is a gene mutation? What causes mutations? What is a point mutation? What disease is 
 caused by a point mutation (see p 511)? What is a frame-shift mutation? 
 Gene mutation- permanent change in a sequence of bases in DNA. Effects can range from none (neutral) to complete inactivity of the protein Causes: 1. error in replication 2. Mutagens- substance that cause mutations. Substances like chemicals that can be in the air we breathe, what we eat or drink. Viruses can be mutagens. 3. Transposons- jumping genes have the ability to move from one location to another on a chromosome or even to a different chromosome. Ex. corn Point mutation- involve a change in a single DNAnucleotide (effects a single letter) Point mutation can cause sickle cell anemia which causes ineffective hemoglobin so the blood cannot transfer blood properly. Frame shift mutation- one or more nucleotides are either inserted or deleted from the DNA. 14. IF a mutation occurs in a germ-line cell, what are the consequences? 
 They can effect the sex cells and can be passed onto future generations. Can lead to cancer. 15. Are all mutations bad? 
 No. Some mutations can be neutral meaning that even if there are mutations the same protein can be coded or there can be no effect. CHAPTER 26 16. List applications of gene cloning. 
 Genomes, transgenic organisms 17. Define or describe: genetic engineering, biotechnology, GMOs, transgenic, recombinant DNA, 
 vector, PCR, DNAfingerprinting, gel electrophoresis. 
 Genetic engineering- altering the genome Biotechnology- products produced by GMOs GMOs- genetically modified organisms Transgenic- Organisms with foreign DNAor genes inserted into them Recombinant DNA- contains DNAfrom two or more different sources. Such as a human cell and a bacterial cell. Can treat some diseases by inserting genes. Vector- carries the “working copy” of the gene PCR- can create billions of copies of a segment of DNAin a test tube in just a few hours. It targets a very specific DNAsequence DNAFingerprinting- entire genome tested with restriction enzymes. Fragments are separated by gel electrophoresis which results in distinctive pattern of bands. Gel electrophoresis- Used to separate fragments when testing the genome 18. How is DNAfingerprinting used in forensics? 
 It is used to determine who the criminal is or who was involved by tracing the bands in the fingerprint with gel electrophoresis 19. How and why have scientists genetically altered some of our crop plants? Increase the nutritional value of the products, provide resistance of insects, provide resistance to herbicides, produce human pharmaceuticals 20.

Keeps gene pools or two or more populations similar Genetic drift- change in allele frequencies due to chance Population bottleneck- when a population decreases significantly and when they become repopulated there is a lack of genetic variation Founder effect- when only a few individuals represent Ellis- van Creveld syndrome- autosomal recessive condition that occurs with an increases frequency among theAmish in PA. They have 6 fingers on each hand 26. List and describe agents of evolution. 
 Mutations- raw material for evolutionary change. Permanent genetic change, and arise randomly. Genetic drift- change in allele frequencies due to chance Found effect- a few individuals found a colony and their collective genes represent only a fraction of the original gene pool Bottleneck effect- when a population is decreased significantly and when they are repopulated there is a lack of genetic variation Gene flow- movement of alleles between populations Nonrandom mating- occurs when individuals pair up according to phenotype or genotype (inbreeding) Natural selection- because of certain traits or characteristics help them survive better, those individuals can reproduce and then those genes are passed onto later generations 27. How does Lamarck’s theory differ from Darwin’s? 
 Lamarck’s theory describes and entire population evolving generation by generation into what they need to live in their environment where as Darwin’s theory describes natural selection which means that those with the desirable trait will survive and reproduce offsprings with that desirable trait 28.

 radiation. (see pp 536 and 553) 
 Adaptive radiation is when there is a proliferation of a species by adaption to different ways of life. Galapagos Finches originated as one kind on the main island but it is said that they flew to other islands and adapted to the environment there specifically their beaks changed to adapt to the kind of food they were eating. Through natural selection the finches adapted on each island. 32. List and characterize the 3 domains of life.

 Streptococcus pyogenes- causes most diseases of any strep (pharyngitis, impetigo, scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, and necrotizing fasciitis) Staphylococcus aureus- related to skin infections and if it gets into the blood stream it is called a systemic infections which can be very deadly MRSA- resistant staphylococcus aureus. Over 90% of the strains are resistant to penicillin 39. How do tubercles form when a person is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis? If a person 
 has a positive reaction to a TB skin test does that mean that their lungs are diseased? 
 After a person is infected an immune response causes calcified nodules (tubercles) in the lungs. If they test positive it does not mean that their lungs are diseases. 40. How might an adult acquire botulism?Achild? How might a person become infected with 
 Salmonella bacteria? 
 Botulism can be acquired through canned food.Achild can get it from eating honey.Aperson can get infected with salmonella by eating food contaminated with animal feces. These foods usually are poultry, beef, eggs, dairy. and vegetables. 41. How do antibiotics work? What are some problems associated with antibiotic therapy?

Describe the basic structure of a virus. 
 they all have DNAor RNAgenome and they have a protein coat 44. Viruses are not considered “living,” why? What determines the specificity of a virus? Hint- receptors 
 They are considered non living because they are surrounded by a protien coat and go int the host cell which is needed in order for them to reproduce and replicate 45. Define or describe: antigenic drift, antigenic shift. 
 Antigenic drift- when there is a slight change in the proteins that occur because of the mutations in the RNAgenome. This is the reason we have a new flu vaccine every year Antigenic shift- when two different viruses infect a single individual. The viruses can exchange genetic material which creates a new virus 46.
