Lecture 13 and 14 notes Chapter 13: Meiosis Chromosomes:  Homologous chromosomes: chromosomes that are the same size, have the same genes, and shape but have different version of genes(alleles)  Karotypes: Number and types of chromosomes present in organisms  Sex Chromosomes: Determine sex of individual  Autosomes: Other chromosomes  Humans have 46 chromosomes 22 autosome pairs and 2 sex chromosomes Ploidy: Indicates the number of each type of chromosomes present  Haploid: One of each type of chromosome  Diploid: Two of each type of chromosome o Have paternal and maternal chromosome  Polyploid: three or more types of chromosomes Meiosis 1 1. Early prophase: Homologous chromosomes come together to form tetrads or bivalents and a process called synapsis (bringing together of non-sister chromosomes) takes place i. Process forms synaptonemal complex(network of proteins that connect homologous chromosomes) 2. Late prophase: non-sister chromatids(chromatids belonging to homologous chromosomes) separate at many points in length but stay connected at chiasma. a. At chiasma crossing over takes place(paternal and maternal segments exchange) 3. Metaphase: Pairs of homologous chromosomes line up 4. Anaphase: tetrads are broken and homologues go to opposite poles 5. Telophase: same as mitosis except with replicated chromosomes Lecture 13 and 14 notes 6. Cytokinesis: Cell splits and forms two cells with same amount of chromosomes as starting cell Meiosis 2: Same as mitosis How is genetic variation promoted?  Crossing over  Independent assortment: bivalents can line up in different ways in meiosis 1 and be put in different cells in meiosis 2  Fertilization: Out crossing from different people can make new combinations Zygote: Sperm + egg diploid cell Nondisjunction: When a set of homologs or both sister chromatids separate to the wrong pole  Aneuploid Zygotes: Chromosomes with too few or too many chromosomes  Trisomony: extra copy of chromosomes  Monosomy: lack of chromosome Chapter 14: DNA Replication DNA Structure  Made up of sugar phosphate backbone and nitrogen containing base  One strand runs from 5 end( has exposed phosphate group) to 3 end ( exposed hydroxyl group) and the other strand is anti-parallel and run 3 to 5 forming a double helix  Guanine and cytosine are stronger because they have 3 hydrogen bonds DNA Replication  Replication bubbles form when DNA is replicating and replication forks are the y shaped regions o Eukaryotic have multiple bubbles Lecture 13 and 14 notes o Prokaryotic have single  Leading strand(Strand with 5-3) goes one replicates that strand in one way in the bubble and lagging strand( strand with 3-5) replicates the other way in the bubble How is the helix opened and stabilized?  Helicase: catalyzes the breaking down of hydrogen bonds between bases  Single-strand DNA binding proteins(SSBPs): attach to the strands to prevent them from rebinding or closing  Topoisomerase: cuts and rejoins DNA downstream of the fork o Relieves twisting forces How is leading strand synthesized?  DNA polymerase(enzyme that catalyzes the making of DNA) requires a primer( few nucleotides of RNA added to template)  Primase adds these RNA segments going toward the 3 end How is lagging strand synthesized?  Short fragments are made called Okazaki fragments and DNA polymerase 1 removes parts to create gaps  Okazaki fragments are put together by DNA ligase to form a continuous strand  This is why lagging is called the discontinuous strand This multi enzyme machine is called Replisome Replicating the ends of linear chromosomes  Made up of telomeres that are short repeating bases that don’t contain any genes  In the leading strand telomeres are fine but in the lagging strand telomeres are shortened during DNA replication  Caused by primer being removed at end of chromosome leaving a single strand DNA that degrades Lecture 13 and 14 notes How is it prevented?  Telomerase adds more bases to the end of the lagging strand catalyzes the synthesis of DNA from a RNA template carried with it Chromosomes of somatic cells continually shorten How is DNA replication so accurate?  DNA polymerase proofreads it’s work removing bases if it’s mismatched and correcting it by acting as a exonuclease and removing deoxy ribonucleotides How is DNA repaired?  Nucleotide excision repair system recognizes theres an error and removes section of single stranded DNA and uses the other strand as a template to make new DNA
