• DNA is found in all living things. The
  shape of DNA is like a twisted ladder and
  is called a double helix. One molecule of
  DNA can contain millions of atoms. When
  unraveled, there are about 6 feet of DNA
  in each of your bodies cells.

• 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?

• In prophase I, doubled
  chromosomes condense
  again. . . BUT, UNLIKE
  mitotic prophase, the
  members of each
  chromosome pair attach
  to each other. These
  paired chromosomes
  actually exchange
  pieces of themselves
  with each other -- called
  crossing over.

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

August 11, 2011                           31
August 11, 2011   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.

                  • DNA structure was
                    discovered in 1953 by
                    an American scientist,
                    James Watson , and a
                    British Scientist,
                    Frances Crick.

           Structure of DNA
• 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
   specific base to form the steps
   of the
August 11, 2011 ladder               40
       Base Names
• There are 4
  nucleotide bases
  that make up a
  DNA molecule.
• They are adenine,
  thymine, cytosine
  and guanine.

                           • In a double
                             helix, Adenine
                             always pairs
                             with thymine
                             and cytosine
                             always pairs
                             with guanine.

• 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.

• DNA does three critical things:
1. Genes carry information from one
   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

                      Warm Up
• 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
August 11, 2011 to 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

August 11, 2011                              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.

  one side of the
  ladder shape.
• RNA contains the
  nitrogen base
  uracil instead of

August 11, 2011                   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

August 11, 2011                          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.

August 11, 2011                     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.

August 11, 2011                            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
  chromosome, or be inverted.
• Whole chromosomes may fuse.

            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".

                    girls and women in the United
                  • Symptoms include short stature
                    and lack of ovarian development.
                    Other features, such as webbed
                    neck, arms that turn out slightly at
                    the elbow, and a low hairline in
                    the back of the head are
                    sometimes seen.
                  • Women and girls with Turner
                    Syndrome have only one X
                  • the single X chromosome comes
                    from the mother's egg because the
                    father's sperm that fertilizes the
                    egg is missing a sex chromosome.

                          caused by a deletion on the
                          short arm of chromosome 5.
                          The name of this syndrome is
                          French for "cry of the cat,"
                          referring to the distinctive cry

                  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.

                  XYY syndrome
• XYY syndrome is an trisomy of the sex
  chromosomes in which a human male receives
  an extra Y chromosome, producing a 47,XYY
• Most often, this chromosomal change causes no
  unusual physical features or medical problems.
• 47,XYY boys have an increased risk of learning
  difficulties (in up to 50%) and delayed speech
  and language

                    child in 4 million.
                  • When they are born, children with
                    progeria appear normal
                  • But, as they grow older, they
                    experience growth retardation and

        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.

August 11, 2011                              130

August 11, 2011                     137
              Incomplete dominance
• Incomplete dominance – offspring show a
  blending of traits from parent to parent.
• Neither allele is completely dominant over
  the other.

August 11, 2011                            138
• Codominance – both alleles of a certain
  trait appear in the offspring.
• Neither allele is dominant over the other.
• Codominance does not involve blending.

August 11, 2011                            139
• Codominant and incomplete dominant
  crosses are sometimes shown with all

                  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.

  of your bloodline increases the risk of
  genetic abnormalities.
• Inbreeding has caused many breeds of
  dogs to have harmful genetic traits.
  Dalmatians are often deaf, and other dog
  breeds have high frequencies of epilepsy,

            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?

• 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.

• 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?
