two daughter cells Eukaryotes genome is linear and large DNA is in nucleus Prokaryotes genome is small and circular DNA is in cytoplasm Prokaryotes binary ssion A cell replicated its DNA increases in size divides in to 2 daughter cells and each daughter cell receives one copy of the replicated parental DNA Eukaryotes mitotic division Meiosis leads to gametes Daughter cells have HALF of genetic material as parental cells Reductive Mitosis leads to somatic cells general cells in body Genetic material is divided equally and daughter cells are identical to parental cells Purpose is to distribute chromosomes equally to daughter cells Interphase 31 phase cell grows and protein content inc and waits for a signal to divide S phase synthesis of DNA replication 32 or gap phase more

replicate centrosomes Prometaphase Microtubules attach to chromosomes Nuclear membrane dissolves Microtubes reach outretract until they nd a centromere to attach to Microtub ues attach to kinetochores of centromeres Two protein complexes kinetochores which are on each side of centromere and associated with each sister chromatids The tension on the kinetochore is what allows it to know when to separate Meta phase Chromosomes line up in middle Ana phase Proper tension on each side of kinetochore to pull sister chromatids apart as soon as they separate the sister chromatids are noW chromosomes and go to each pole Telophase Complete set of chromosones arrives at a spindle pole and cystolic changes occur in preparation for the cell 5 division to occur Chromosomes begin to

before In synapsis homologous chromosomes pair with each other side by side gene for gene Each pair of chromosomes four stranded structure called bivalent tetrads Within these are cross like structures called chiasmata visible cross overs between non sister chromatids Chiasmata allows homo chromosomes of maternal and paternal origin to undergo an exchange of DNA segments Basically linkage

Replication Semiconservative one parent strand and one daughter strand after replication Conservative after replication the new duplex consists of two daughter strands leaving parent strand intact Dispersive two helix with old and new interspersed throughout strands MeselsonStahl experiment Bacterial DNA replication is semiconservative After two rounds of replication the daughter DNA molecules therefore form two bands one intermediate in density and the other light Experiments with uorescently labeled DNA led to the discovery that eukaryotic cells also replicate semi conservatively Replication Replication occurs 5 to 3 Unwinding of the DNA duplex results in replication fork The daughter strand on top elongates from left to right 3 to 5 and that on the bottom from right to left Replication of top strand is discontinuous fragmented whereas bottom is con nuous Primers are removed and replaced with DNA and fragments of discontinuous lagging strand are ligated where they meet Can begin at any origin or replication Pro have only one Eu have many At ea replication fork new strand with the free 3 end is leading strand and with free 5 end is lagging strand DNA Synthesis and RNA Primers DNA polymerase enzyme for DNA replication cannot begin a new strand on its own it can only elongate an existing piece of RNA or DNA Each DNA strand must begin with short RNA that serves as primer for DNA synthesis Primer is made by RNA polymerase called RNA primase Most DNA polymerases can correct their own errors in a process called proofreading If an error is detected DNA poly activates a cleavage fxn and removes incorrect nucleotide and inserts correct one DNA polymerase extends an RNA primer One on leading strand progression is going same way as fork Lagging strand 5 to 3 but opposite direction of fork Helicase unwinds the DNA duplex Topoisomerase ll relieves the stress of unwinding Single stranded binding proteins stabilize single strands of DNA Replication Forks see origin of replication from the middle starting point you have one fork for each bubble going in opposite directions at each replication fork the new strand with free 3 end is leading strand and with the free 5 end is the lagging strand Replication of Circular DNA Bacteria mitochondria chloroplasts Only one bubble The End Replication Problem Eukaryotic cells have ends The last RNA primer on lagging strand sits near the end of the parent strand Rna primer is removed and a section of template DNA remains unreplicated So each replication it gets shorter In adult somatic cells miotic division can only occur about 50 times before the telomeres are so short that cells stop dividing Hypothesis that this is unregulated check for cancer prevention Eukaryotes have developed solution to this for germ line cells Telomerase reverse transcriptase RNA to DNA telomerase RNA folds up and binds to complementary bases that will then generate DNA bases that are complementary to it template strand T TAGGG DNA Manipulation Polymerase Chain Rxn PCR Common method for making copies of a piece of DNA Allows a targeted region of DNA to be replicated into as many copies 1 denaturation heat separates two strands 2 annealing Use DNA primers to match portion of DNA by comp base pairing and serve them starting point for polymerase 3 extension temperature that is most favorable for DNA polymerase to come in and extend off primer to synthesis daughter strand Components for PCR Template DNA DNA polymerase TAQ ATGC nucleotides two primers short stretches of DNA Electrophoresis Large one move slowly small move faster Big fragments at start of well small at end because of speed Can analyze for target sequence Move toward opposite electrodes Restriction enzymes cut DNA at speci c sequences Allows recombinant DNA technology Or can cut large genomes into small for analysis Opposite cuts on two diff strands are sticky Blunt ended are cut in the same spot right down middle Restriction enzymes recognize and cleave nucleotide sequences called restriction sites Top strand is 5 to 3 and the bottom is 3 to 5 Restriction fragments Each tick mark represents cleavage site Use tools in combination Southern Blot Restriction enzyme is added to solution containing DNA The resulting fragments are separated by size by gel electrophoresis DNA fragments in gel are denatured and then blotted onto lter paper Filter paper is places into plastic bag containing solution with radioactively labeled DNA strand probe and this matches and stick to complementary fragments Can visualize which areas on blot are radioactive Each of these lanes is a well Sanger Sequencing Most reliable type of sequencing PCR with one major difference use special type at some frequency that is a terminator nucleotide Terminator nucleotide dideoxynucleotide Lacks 3 hydroxyl group and cannot be elongated because there is no h ydroxyl group to attack an incoming nucleotide triph osphate Dideoxynucleotide incorporation addition of terminator nucleotide The sequence want to separate DNA by size so use electrophoresis Use polyacrylomide gel can separate out DNA at single nucleotide length differences ie bw 3 bases and 4 bases Recombinant DNA GMO Donor DNA that you want is obtained by restriction enzymes which is also used on the vector DNA where its going Sticky cuts overhanging They are perfectly complementary Fragments are mixed together and joined by DNA ligase Genomic and vector fragments have complementary ends Transformation Introduced into bacteria cell by transformation Chemically induced to suck up DNA from outside the cell also replicated recombinant DNA as it replicates
