DNA and Protein Synthesis

... change in protein sequence, but it's function won't be altered. Another possibility is that you get some totally different amino acid (Glu -> Arg; Xxx -> Pro), which will either completely impair the functioning of that protein or it won't be able to fold (and thus work). Lastly, you can ...

To determine the gene order.....

A cross is made between two E.coli strains....Hfr-arg+bio+leu+.....and F-arg-bio-leu-.....interrupted mating studies revealed that arg enters the recipient last. so arg+ recombinants are selcted on a medium containing only bio n leu. these recombinants ...

Quick question on genes - thanks!

... (considerably!) but am I right in thinking that what you've said is because RNA splicing can accomplish base substitution (RNA editing) (eg, AGA/arg in the DNA is base-changed to GGA/Gly in the mRNA, thus changing the properties of the AMPA receptor that that AGA/GGA contributes to )? (I've just ...
