March 2, 2016 Chapter 6: Genetic Linkage Genetic Mapping Overview o Displays 1. What Genes are Present 2. What Physical Order They’re In o Vocab to Know Bateson and Punnet’s Work o Two Factor Heterogeneous Cross o So they question is – why was it so far off? Crossing Over o Pachytene Phase o Crossing Over increased the variability o So Watson decided to look at three traits o How Could They Prove Crossing Over is Occurring? Took a look at corn Corn has 10 Chromosome, and various Chromosome 9’s have some abnormalities I. Translocated Piece of 8 II. Knob on the End Both ends were also known to have specific gene loci So they decided to run a cross (Test Cross): Heterozygote with Recessive Proved? I. Were able to view the Crossed Over portions under the microscope II. The crossing Over created new phenotypic combinations Mitotic Recombination o This occurrence is much less likely This process is always Nuclear, so not like variegated leaves o Two Periods of Occurrence: I. It Can Happen Very Early on in Development – different body tissues II. Or It Can Happen After Development – mosaicism, patches o Ex) Drosophila Body Types Body Color and Bristle Type is found on the X Chromosome So females have 2 XChromosomes in their cells When they replicate, the homologues on the two can match up and cross over So think about it: couldn’t occur in males in this scenario Also consider what would happen at either of the locations of development: I. Early Stages – divided body tissues II. Somatic Cells – can form a path of phenotypically altered appearance Dr. V’s Questions for Clarity o Linkage Groups vs. Linked Linkage Groups – Linked – o ChiSquared Analysis The possibilities in this case are “Recombinant” and “Nonrecombinant,” so the DF = 1 o Crossing Over Occurs in Pachytene Phase of Prophase I between NonHomologues o Genetic Mapping It is done with a Test Cross So there needs to be a recessive individual To Lay it Out: o Keep in mind that whole segments of Chromosomes are being moved, not simply alleles To prove this, a Heteromorphic Allele was utilized (Chromosome 9 in corn) o Mitotic Recombination This is incredibly rare But it should not be confused with the effects of Maternal Inheritance in the form of Variegation This effect is Mosaicism, a Nuclear Phenomenon March 4, 2016 Chapter 6: Genetic Linkage – Mapping Genetic Mapping o Overview Also known as Chromosome Mapping Definition – the arrangement of genes along the Chromosome Distance is being measured and is the key consideration Loci are being defined o Uses: Eugenics and Disease Analyses Evolutionary Comparisons o The Process Recombination Frequency is measured This is the capacity to Cross Over They are measured in Map Units (mu) or CentiMorgan (CM) Comes out to be that 10% frequency related to 10mu o Test Crossing Always need a Heterodominant paired with a Recessive So with Sex Chromosomes an extra consideration must be made: Hemizygous Recessive Can Occur in Males Heterozygote + Homozygote See how, when following gamete formation, the pieces start to really fit together Some Profiles of Examples of Genetic Mapping o I. Multiple Genes – Drosophila Have about 10 Identified Genes on the XChromosome To analyze, they need to be broken into pairs What becomes evident is that going with frequency higher than 30% and up to 50% leads to Underestimation Multiple Crossovers can occur at that point So the preferred method is start close and move outward The smaller numbers are more closely linked and are therefore more accurate overall So these are the genes we’re looking at (Five Total Loci) So to determine the significance of crossing over, each needs to be compared in pairs o II. Trihybrid Cross – Drosophila The same general idea will apply Three Groups of Offspring Now Become Evident 1. Parental Combinations 2. Intermediate (Single Crosses) 3. Double Crosses These groups will be important in the ultimate analysis of gene mapping o III. General Goal Compare the frequencies between two alleles to begin mapping the Chromosome Calculating the Map Distance o Formula Crossover Frequency BetweenGene A∧B ¿x100 ( TotalOffspring This is equivalent to… RecombinantOffspring¿x100 ( TotalOffspring o You always have to compare two genes, but you can’t use a Dihybrid cross – there’s nothing else with which to compare them o If the genes are far apart, there’s a higher likelihood of recombination occurring o It’s also always best to start “close up,” so to say, and “zoom out” So calculate the smaller numbers (more accurate) and add them Instead of taking the big numbers first o Example I: Simple, The Bristle Types (Dihybrid) Recall, the colored picture in the test cross, the numbers were about 450 and 75 for Parental and Recombinant, respectively. So look at how to plug those numbers in: o Example II: More Complex, The Above Trihybrid Cross But when more genes are involved, more options become apparent The next example will outline two manners in which you can determine the mapping units in a Trihybrid Cross As a side note, Polyhybrid Crosses become too complicated to be useful and efficient Interference o One crossing over prevents another from occurring o Calculating Interference P (¿¿GENE1/2CROSSOVER)x(P GENE 2/3CROSSOVER Expected DoubleCrosses=P TWOCROSSOVER observed doublecrossovers c=confidencecoefficient= expected doublecrossovers Interference=1−c o When Prevention Occurs, it is called Positive Interference o Negative Interference Never Occurs Chapter 9: Molecular Structure of Genetic Material What is Genetic Material? o 1) Stores Info o 2) Replicates o 3) Transmission o 4) Allows for Variance How Did We Get to Where We Are? o 1) Experiment I – Griffith’s Bacteria General Overview Griffith experimented with Bacteria In general, Smooth Bacteria are virulent o They have a smooth outside protein capsule o This capsule is made of Complex Carbohydrate Trees Rough Bacteria are nonvirulent o They lack the coating Overall, there are Two Types of the Bacteria Bacterial Mutations Smooth mutations led to the rough capsule, nonvirulent form So while the capsule type can switch back and forth, the bacteria type cannot Experimental Results Living Type 3S Type 2R, Dead 3S Aside: How do Vaccines Work? Our immune cells begin to synthesize antibodies to tag infectious diseases So our cells search for Cell Surface Antigens (define as what antibodies bind to) on Bacteria o Smooth is more complicated to synthesize
