AP Biology 1. Well go over tests from before break 2. Go through study guide (get some hints) 3. Begin chapter 18 Purpose of this chapter Cells are efficient because they conserve energy for processes that MUST be done. Cells have the ability to turn on or off

genes depending on the proteins that are present or absent within the cell. We will learn how cells turn on or off genes to maintain cellular efficiency. Chapter 18- Gene Regulation Bacteria respond to environmental change by regulating transcription. Most of what we know about gene

regulation is from bacteria. We will be looking at E. coli bacteria E. coli lives in the human intestinal tract Regulation of gene expression Vocabulary 1. Tryptophan- amino acid needed for survival (bacteria)

2. Feedback- allows cell to adjust the amount of tryptophan made based on availability of the amino acid 3. Operon- the mechanism that controls gene expression Regulation of Gene Expression Vocabulary Continued: 4. Regulatory Gene- on DNA that regulates a

gene further away 5. Promoter- A specific nucleotide sequence in DNA that binds to RNA polymerasepositioning it so it may begin transcribing mRNA 6. Operator- the on and off switch of DNA 7. Repressor- the mechanics of how the operon may be turned off (blocks attachment of RNA polymerase to promoter) Types of Gene Regulation

1.Negative Gene Regulation (shut off by an active repressor) A.Repressible Operon B.Inducible Operon 2.Positive Gene Regulation (turned on by an active repressor) Trp Operon Trp Operon

Trp Operon Trp Operon Trp operon is a repressible operon Its transcription can be inhibited (repressed) when tryptophan is available Trp binds allosterically to a regulatory protein

Lac Operon Lac operon is an inducible operon It is usually shut off But it can be stimulated (induced) when lactose (lac) is present Lac Operon Lac Operon

Positive Gene Control Example is the lac operon (lac operon can be both positive and negative) Heres why E. coli prefers glucose to lactose so it will preferentially breakdown glucose rather than lactose (turning lac off) inducible However if glucose is NOT available there must be a gene that transcribes lac enzymes

The absence of glucose increases the amount of cAMP in the cell (positive) Positive- Lac operon Positive- Lac operon AP Biology Review try and lac operons

Finish chapter 18, begin chapter 19 today Test is February 1st Eukaryotic Regulation All organisms must regulate genes. Unicellular and multicellular organisms must continually turn genes on and off in response to external and internal cues. Human cells generally express 20% of its

genes at a time Different cell types are different not in DNA but because of differential gene expression Figure 18.6 Signal NUCLEUS Chromatin

Stages in gene expression that can be regulated in eukaryotic cells DNA

Chromatin modification: DNA unpacking involving histone acetylation and DNA demethylation Gene available for transcription Gene Transcription RNA

Protein processing, such as cleavage and chemical modification Degradation of protein Active protein Transport to cellular destination

Cellular function (such as enzymatic activity, structural support) Regulation of Eukaryotic cells 1. Regulation of chromatin structure 2. Regulation of transcription initiation 3. Mechanisms of post-transcriptional regulation

Chromatin structure A. Histone Modifications- when structures around chromatin are changed a decrease in Transcription of gene occurs B. DNA methylation- long stretches of inactivated DNA Transcription Factors

1. Enhancers- Segment of DNA containing multiple control elements, located far from where the promoter is These allow DNA to bend which brings the enhancers closer to transcription factors DNA folds over top of itself Figure 18.10-1

1. Alternative RNA splicing- some segments of the mRNA strand are treated as introns . (Regulatory strands control which genes are read as introns or exons) As a result alternative mRNA is actually synthesized. 2. mRNA degradation- doesnt last long weeks at most 3. Initiation of translation- Some are prevented from attaching to a ribosome for translation

AP Biology YAY the projector is working! Finish chapter 19 today Chapter 19- Viruses Virus- very simple, very small. Lack metabolic machinery

An infectious particle consisting of a few genes packaged in a protein coat Are viruses living or non-living? Discussion- Discovery of Viruses Tobacco disease stunts growth of

tobacco plants and gives leaves a mosaic coloration Viral Structure Rod shaped

Infect respiratory tract Membrane envelope Viral Genomes

Many viruses differ in the type of genetic material they carry Double-stranded DNA Single-stranded DNA Double-stranded RNA

Single-stranded RNA Capsids and Envelopes Capsid- protein shell enclosing the viral genome Depending on virus can be rod, polyhedral, or more complex Viral envelope- membranes of host cell

studded with glycoprotein spikes Influenza have this membrane envelope which encloses the capsid Viral Replication Lytic cycle1. 2. 3. 4.

5. 6. 7. Attachment of virus to host cell Virus drops off genetic material Genetic material goes into nucleus Genetic material is replicated Transcription occurs Translation makes proteins

Lyse= break= as protein leave it lyses the cell (programmed cell death) Virulent phage- a virus that only replicates by a lytic cycle Why is there still bacteria? Natural selection favors bacterial mutants with receptor sites that are no longer recognized by the phage type

Bacteria produce restriction enzymes that recognize and cut up foreign DNA including phage DNA. This prevents phage to infect the cell Lysogenic cycle Lysogenic cycle- allows replication of the phage genome without destroying the host Temperate phage- use both lytic and lysogenic cycles

Prophage- when DNA from phage is integrated into the host. Host lives silently within the bacterium Lysogenic Cycle Lysogenic cycle- the phage replicates without destroying the host cell Temperate phage- use both lytic and lysogenic cycles

Lysogenic Cycle The phage is temperate 1. binds to the surface of the cell and injects it with DNA 2. Next step depends on lytic or lysogenic cycle 3. Lysogenic= the DNA is incorporated into a specific site on the bacteria (E. coli) virus replicates without killing the host

4. Lytic = viral genes turn the host cell into a producing factory lysing the host cell and infecting more cells. Animal virus diversity Important variations The type of nucleic acid that serves as virus genetic material Viruses equipped with an outer envelope use it to enter host cell Viral envelope is derived from the hosts

plasma membrane, although viral genes specify some of the molecules in the membrane Retroviruses Retrovirus- have the most complicated cycles Reverse transcriptase enzyme that transcribes DNA from an RNA template provides RNA---- DNA flow Human immunodeficiency virus- HIV the virus that

causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) Contain 2 single RNA strands, 2 reverse transcriptase After HIV enters the host cell transcriptase is released in cytoplasm and it catalyzes the synthesis of DNA The new DNA inserts itself into the DNA as a provirus (permanent) Evolution of Virus

Viruses have been found to infect every life form (bacteria, animals, plants, fungi, algae and protists) Because virus depends on cells for their own propagation it is likely that they evolved after the first cell appeared. Candidates Plasmids circular DNA that are separate from chromosomes, independent from rest of the cell (can be transferred from 1 cell to another) Transposons- DNA segments that can move from 1 location to another in a cells genome

Vaccine- harmless variants or derivatives of pathogenic microbes, that stimulate the immune system to mount defenses against the actual pathogen. AP Biology REVIEW of chapter 18, 19 today- group work. Begin chapter 20

Monday well review essay writing a bit, look at great essays vs not great essays. Essay next Wednesday AP Biology New seats??? Change to schedule!!! Chapter 18-20 test January 24!!! This

Thursday!!! All labs will take place Jan 28-Feb 1 Biotechnology Recombinant DNA- DNA segments from 2 different sources Biotechnology- the direct manipulation of organisms and their components to make useful products

Genetic engineering- the direct manipulation of organisms and their genes for practical purposes Plasmids Plasmid- small circular DNA molecules with a small number of genes that replicated independently of a chromosome Basic cloning technique begins with insertion

of a foreign gene into a bacterial plasmid to produce a recombinant DNA molecule Resulting cell is a recombinant bacterium Gene cloning- the production of multiple copies of a single gene Restriction enzymes Restriction enzymes- enzymes that cut DNA molecules at specific locations

In nature bacteria use restriction enzymes to cut DNA molecules for protection Restriction site- a specific site where DNA will be cut Restriction fragments- small cuts of DNA Sticky ends- the end of the cut plasmid DNA ligase- glues and fuses DNA back together Cloning vector DNA molecule that can carry foreign DNA into a cell to replicate there.

Technique 1. Clone all hummingbird genes 2. Get the plasmid DNA ready Carries ampR resistance to antibiotic ampicillin lacZ as well 3. Plasmid has a recognition sequence 4. Both plasmid and hummingbird DNA are digested with the same restriction enzyme

5. Fragments are mixed together (pair with sticky ends) 6. DNA ligase added to glue fragments together Technique Contd. NOTE: Some cells acquire recombinant plasmid Some take up a nonrecombinant plasmid Some dont take up anything

Cells placed on agar containing ampicillin and X-gal *Only bacteria that have ampR will grow *stains will be different if lacZ was present or not lacZ presence will be white not blue Other techniques PCR (polymerase chain reaction) makes copies of DNA without using cells and does this rapidly

Nucleic acid hybridizationdepends on base pairing between a gene and a complementary sequence Electrophoresis Gel electrophoresis- separates macromolecules (nucleic acids or proteins) on the basis of their rate of movement through a polymer gel in an electrical field.

Rate of movement depends on: Molecular size Electrical charge Gel electrophoresis contd. When the mixture undergoes electrophoresis, it yields a banded pattern characteristic of the starting molecule and the restriction enzyme used. The relatively small DNA molecules of viruses

and plasmids can be identified by their patterns. Gel-electrophoresis steps 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Restriction enzyme treatment Gel electrophoresis DNA transfer by blotting onto membrane Hybridization with radioactive probe Autoradiography
