DNA Griffith and Transformation In 1928, British scientist Fredrick Griffith was trying to learn how certain types of bacteria caused pneumonia. He isolated two different strains of pneumonia bacteria from mice and grew them in his lab. Griffith and Transformation

Griffith made two observations: 1. The disease-causing strain of bacteria grew into smooth colonies on culture plates. 2. The harmless strain grew into colonies with rough edges. Griffith and Transformation Griffith's Experiments

Griffith set up four individual experiments. Experiment 1: Mice were injected with the disease-causing strain of bacteria. The mice developed pneumonia and died. Griffith and

Transformation Experiment 2: Mice were injected with the harmless strain of bacteria. These mice didnt get sick. Griffith and Transformation Experiment 3: Griffith

heated the diseasecausing bacteria. He then injected the heat-killed bacteria into the mice. The mice survived. Heat-killed disease-causing bacteria (smooth colonies) Lives

Griffith and Transformation Experiment 4: Griffith mixed his heat-killed, disease-causing bacteria with live, harmless bacteria and injected the mixture into the mice. The mice developed pneumonia and died.

Heat-killed diseasecausing bacteria (smooth colonies) Harmless bacteria (rough colonies) Live disease-causing bacteria (smooth colonies)

Dies of pneumonia Griffith and Transformation Griffith concluded that the heat-killed bacteria passed their disease-causing ability to the harmless strain. Heat-killed diseasecausing bacteria

(smooth colonies) Harmless bacteria (rough colonies) Live disease-causing bacteria (smooth colonies) Dies of pneumonia

Griffith and Transformation Transformation Griffith called this process transformation because one strain of bacteria (the harmless strain) had changed permanently into another (the diseasecausing strain). Griffith hypothesized that a factor must contain information that could change harmless bacteria into

disease-causing ones. Avery and DNA Canadian-American Oswald Avery repeated Griffiths work in 1944 to determine which molecule was most important for transformation. Avery and his colleagues made an extract from the heat-killed bacteria that they treated with enzymes.

Avery and DNA The enzymes destroyed proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and other molecules, including RNA (a type of nucleic acid). Transformation still occurred. Avery and DNA Avery and his team repeated the experiment using enzymes that would

break down DNA. When DNA was destroyed, transformation did not occur. Therefore, they concluded that DNA was the transforming factor. Avery and DNA What did scientists discover about the relationship between genes and DNA?

The Hershey-Chase Experiment Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase studied virusesnonliving particles smaller than a cell that can infect living organisms. The Hershey-Chase Experiment A virus that infects bacteria is known as a bacteriophage. Bacteriophages are composed of a DNA or RNA core and a protein coat.

The Hershey-Chase Experiment When a bacteriophage enters a bacterium, the virus attaches to the surface of the cell and injects its genetic information into it. The viral genes produce many new bacteriophages, which eventually destroy the bacterium. When the cell splits open, hundreds of new viruses burst out.

The Hershey-Chase Experiment If Hershey and Chase could determine which part of the virus entered an infected cell, they would learn whether genes were made of protein or DNA. They grew viruses in cultures containing radioactive isotopes of phosphorus-32 (32P) and sulfur-35 (35S).

The Hershey-Chase Experiment If 35S was found in the bacteria, it would mean that the viruses protein had been injected into the bacteria. If 32P was found in the bacteria, then it was the DNA that had been injected. Bacteriophage with phosphorus-32 in DNA

Phage infects bacterium Radioactivity inside bacterium The Hershey-Chase Experiment Nearly all the radioactivity in the bacteria was from phosphorus (32P).

Hershey and Chase concluded that the genetic material of the bacteriophage was DNA, not protein. The Components and Structure of DNA DNA is made up of nucleotides. nucleotide = a five-carbon sugar [deoxyribose] a phosphate group

a nitrogenous base. The Components and There are four kinds Structure of DNA of bases in DNA: adenine guanine cytosine thymine

The Components and Structure of DNA The backbone of a DNA chain is formed by sugar and phosphate groups of each nucleotide. The nucleotides can be joined together in any order. The Components and Structure of DNA Chargaff's Rules

Erwin Chargaff discovered that: If you have G always binding to C, then the amount of G should equal C (or be very close) Same applies for A and T The Components and Structure of DNA X-ray evidence Rosalind Franklin used X-ray Diffraction to study DNA Structure

The Components and Structure of DNA The Double Helix Using clues from Franklins pattern, James Watson and Francis Crick built a model that explained how DNA carried information and could be copied. Watson and Crick's model of DNA was a double helix, in which two strands were wound around each other.

DNA Double Helix The Components and Structure of DNA Watson and Crick discovered that hydrogen bonds can form only between certain base pairsadenine and thymine, and guanine and cytosine. This principle is called base pairing.

The number of chromosomes varies widely from one species to the next. Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall Chromosome Structure Eukaryotic chromosomes contain DNA and protein, tightly packed together to form chromatin. Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

DNA Replication Each strand of the DNA double helix has all the information needed to reconstruct the other half. This happens through the mechanism of base pairing. In most prokaryotes, DNA replication begins at a single point and continues in two directions.

Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall DNA Replication In eukaryotic chromosomes, DNA replication occurs at hundreds of places. Replication proceeds in both directions until each chromosome is completely copied. The sites where separation and replication occur are called replication forks.

Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall DNA Replication Duplicating DNA Before a cell divides, it duplicates its DNA in a process called replication. Replication ensures that each resulting cell will have a complete set of DNA.

Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall DNA Replication During DNA replication, the DNA molecule separates into two strands, then produces two new complementary strands following the rules of base pairing.

Each strand of the double helix of DNA serves as a template for the new strand. Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall New Strand Original strand Nitrogen Bases

Growth Growth Replication Fork Replication Fork DNA Polymerase Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

How Replication Occurs DNA replication is carried out by enzymes that unzip a molecule of DNA. Hydrogen bonds between base pairs are broken and the two strands of DNA unwind. Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall DNA Replication

The principal enzyme involved in DNA replication is DNA polymerase. DNA polymerase joins individual nucleotides to produce a DNA molecule and then proofreads each new DNA strand. Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
