• Normal human body cells each contain 46 chromosomes. The cell
  division process that body cells undergo is called mitosis and
  produces daughter cells that are virtually identical to the parent cell.
  Answer the questions that follow.
• 1. How many chromosomes would a sperm or an egg contain if
  either one resulted from the process of mitosis?

• 2. If a sperm containing 46 chromosomes fused with an egg
  containing 46 chromosomes, how many chromosomes would the
  resulting fertilized egg contain? Do you think this would create any
  problems in the developing embryo?

• 3. In order to produce a fertilized egg with the appropriate number
  of chromosomes (46), how many chromosomes should each sperm
  and egg have?

• During Meiosis, chromosome pairs
  separate to form gametes (sex cells)
• Sometimes the gametes do not separate
• This is called nondisjunction

November 30, 2010                         31
November 30, 2010   32
• In nondisjunction, both chromosome pairs
  go to the same gamete
• As a result one gamete has too many
  chromosomes and the other gamete has
  too few.
• If either of these gametes unites with a
  normal gamete during fertilization, the
  organism does not develop properly.

                      an American scientist,
                      James Watson , and a
                      British Scientist,

• DNA looks like a twisted
• We call this structure a double
• The sides of the ladder are
   made up of sugars and
• The steps of the ladder are
   made of nitrogen bases.
• Each base pairs with another

• During mitosis, cellular DNA copies itself.
  This is called replication.
• The DNA ladder unzips itself and new
  nitrogen bases pair up with the ladder.
• After replication, we have new DNA
  strands that are exact copies of the
  original DNA molecule.

                    The Role of DNA
• A single DNA molecule, or ladder, can
  have thousands of steps, or base pairs.
• The number and arrangement of these
  steps forms a genetic code.

   generation to another.
2. Genes determine the heritable (traits that
   are passed to offspring) characteristics of
   an organism.
3. Copy DNA every time cell division

• DNA contains the information that a cell needs to carry
   out all of its functions. In a way, DNA is like the cell‘s
   encyclopedia. Suppose that you go to the library to do
   research for a science project. You find the information
   in an encyclopedia. You go to the desk to sign out the
   book, but the librarian informs you that this book is for
   reference only and may not be taken out.
1. Why do you think the library holds some books for
   reference only?
2. If you can‘t borrow a book, how can you take home the
   information in it?
3. All of the parts of a cell are controlled by the information
   in DNA, yet DNA does not leave the nucleus. How do
   you think the information in DNA might get from the
   nucleus to
November 30, 2010 the rest of the cell?                        48

• DNA controls an organism‘s traits by
  producing certain proteins at certain times.
• This is called protein synthesis.
• Proteins are made of molecules called
  amino acids
• These amino acids are made by the
  ribosomes of cells

November 30, 2010                            49
• The DNA code is located inside the
  nucleus of a cell.
• A special molecule carries the code from
  the nucleus to the ribosome.
• This molecule is RNA, or ribonucleic acid.

November 30, 2010                   51
                    How it works?
• RNA copies the code from the DNA strand
  and then carries it to the ribosome.
• RNA acts as a pattern on which proteins
  can be built.
• Ribosomes read the RNA strand and
  attach the correct amino acids.
• The amino acids link together and form a

November 30, 2010                        52
                    Types of RNA
1. Messenger RNA – Contain instructions
   for assembling amino acids and proteins.
2. Ribosomal RNA – Found inside
   ribosomes. Helps the ribosome make
   new proteins
3. Transfer RNA – transfers each amino
   acid to the ribosomes as it is specified by
   the codes on mRNA.

       Transcription & Translation
                    • During transcription, the
                      DNA molecule is unzipped
                      and separated. An enzyme
                      uses one strand of DNA as
                      a template to make a strand
                      of mRNA.
                    • During translation, the cell
                      uses information from the
                      mRNA to produce proteins.

            Chromosome Structure
• Chromosomes are
  made of chromatin.
• Chromatin is a very
  long, thin strand of DNA
• The strands are
  wrapped around special
  proteins that help to
  keep the chromatin in
  an x-shape.

November 30, 2010                  63
• Each side of the x shaped chromosome is
  called a chromatid.
• Chromatids are exact copies of each
• They are held together by a centromere.
• Chromatin does not usually look like this. It
  only forms tight coils when it is about to

                    Chromosome Pairs
• In organisms that sexually reproduce,
  chromosomes exist in pairs.
• This is because each parent contributes to
  the same chromosome.
• Karyotypes show chromosomes arranged
  in pairs.

November 30, 2010                          66
• To "read" a set of human chromosomes,
   scientists first use three key features to identify
   their similarities and differences:
1. Size.
2. Banding pattern. The size and location of bands on
   chromosomes make each chromosome pair unique.
3. Centromere position. Centromeres are regions in
   chromosomes that appear squeezed together.
• Using these key features, scientists match up the
  23 pairs -- one set from the mother and one set
  from the father.

• A Mutation occurs when a DNA gene is
  damaged or changed in such a way as to
  alter the genetic message carried by that
• A Mutagen is an agent of substance that
  can bring about a permanent alteration to
  the physical composition of a DNA gene
  such that the genetic message is changed.

          Chromosomal mutations
• Mutations may involve whole chunks of
  chromosome or just changes in single
• A length of chromosome may be
  translocated to another place on the

            Down Syndrome
• Down Syndrome is a genetic
   disorder caused by extra
   genetic material. It affects
   over 350,000 people in the
   United States alone and is the
   most common (1 in 800 live
   births) imbalance in the
   number of autosomes in
   people. The effects of Down
   Syndrome vary greatly from
   person to person but can
   include mental retardation,
   eyes that slant upward, and
   heart defects.
• People with Down Syndrome
   have 3 copies of chromosome
   21. For this reason, Down
   Syndrome is also called
   "Trisomy 21".

                      and lack of ovarian development.
                      Other features, such as webbed
                      neck, arms that turn out slightly at
                      the elbow, and a low hairline in

                    Williams Syndrome

• Williams Syndrome is caused by a very small chromosomal
  deletion on the long arm of chromosome 7.
• Because they lack the elastin protein, people with Williams
  Syndrome have disorders of the circulatory system, also
  known as vascular disorders.
• The chromosomal deletion that causes Williams Syndrome
  is so small that it cannot be seen in a karyotype. However,
  the deletion can be observed using a special technique
  called fluorescent in situ hybridization, or FISH.

       Phenotypes vs. Genotypes
• The genotype is the specific genetic
  makeup (BB,Bb,or bb) of an individual, in
  the form of DNA .
• The phenotype of an individual organism
  is either its total physical appearance or a
  specific manifestation of a trait, such as
  size, eye color, or behavior that varies
  between individuals.

November 30, 2010                            130

November 30, 2010                   137
             Incomplete dominance
• Incomplete dominance – offspring show a
  blending of traits from parent to parent.
• Neither allele is completely dominant over
  the other.

November 30, 2010                          138
• Codominance – both alleles of a certain
  trait appear in the offspring.
• Neither allele is dominant over the other.
• Codominance does not involve blending.

                Sex-linked disorders
• Sex-linked disorders are more common in
  men, this is because sex-linked disorders
  are often recessive.
• Women have two x chromosomes, while
  one x chromosome might have the allele
  for a disorder, the other chromosome
  usually has a normal allele.
• Because the gene for the disorder is
  recessive, a female with each type of
  gene, still appears normal.

           The Story of Hemophilia
• Late in the summer of 1818, a human sperm
  and egg united to form a human zygote. One of
  those gametes, we don't know which, was
  carrying a newly mutated gene. A single point
  mutation in a nucleotide sequence coding for a
  particular amino acid in a protein essential for
  blood clotting. The zygote became Queen
  Victoria of England and the new mutation was
  for hemophilia, bleeder's disease, carried on the
  X chromosome.

• . The bison herd on Konza Prairie has begun to
  show a genetic defect. Some of the males have
  a condition known as "rabbit hock" in which the
  knee of the back leg is malformed slightly. This
  trait is a sex-linked gene and that is recessive.
  Now, suppose that the herd bull (the dominant
  one which does most of the breeding) who is
  normal (XN) mates with a cow that is a carrier for
  rabbit hock. What are his chances of producing
  a normal son?

•  A rancher owns a bull with many desirable
   characteristics. Unfortunately, he also has a sex-linked
   trait that in the recessive form leads to no pigment
   formation in the iris of the eye. This makes the bull very
   sensitive to sunlight and could lead to blindness. The
   rancher wishes to breed him to a cow that will minimize
   the chances of any offspring showing this trait. She
   would especially like to produce another bull with most
   of his sire's desirable qualities but without the
   nonpigmented eye. Two cows with the dominant normal
   colored eyes (XN) are available that have been
   genetically typed for this particular trait. Cow 1 has a
   genotype of XN XN and cow 2 is XNXn. Which of these
   two cows should the rancher choose as a mate to her
   bull if she wishes to minimize the occurrence of the
   nonpigmented eye in his offspring?
1. What percentage of the male offspring from the
   preferred cross will have nonpigmented eyes?

           3 steps of gene splicing
                     1. Dna ring is
                        temporarily opened
                        using certain
                        specific enzymes.
                     2. New genes from
                        another organism
                        are added, or
                        spliced, into the
                     3. The DNA ring is

• Cloning is the production of cells or organisms
  with identical traits.
• One way of cloning is to take the nucleus out of
  a cell from a donor animal.
• Then place the nucleus into an egg cell whose
  own nucleus has been removed.
• Then place the egg cell in the uterus of an
  animal and allow it to develop.
• When the baby animal is born, it is identical to
  the donor animal.

• Clones can occur naturally in nature, a
  process called twinning. Identical twins
  are, in fact, clones.

• Solve the following problems
• In humans, the genes for colorblindness and
  hemophilia are both located on the X
  chromosome with no corresponding gene on the
  Y. These are both recessive alleles. If a man
  and a woman, both with normal vision, marry
  and have a colorblind son, draw the Punnett
  square that illustrates this. How many/what
  percentage of each could be expected?
