The bases come in four varieties—A, T, G, and C within DNA and A, U, G, and C within RNA. , A, C, G, T/U). Nitrogenase 20 • MODERN BIOTECHNOLOGY bases have the propensity to hydrogen bond to complementary bases on antiparallel strands. The carbons within the sugar molecule are numbered 1-5, in a clockwise fashion. Ribose contains an hydroxyl (-OH) group on the 2’ carbon, where deoxyribose does not. New nts are added to the growing nucleic acid chain by DNA or RNA Pol. This occurs at the hydroxyl group on the 3’ carbon.
It incorporates its genome into the human host’s and then lays dormant for years, if not decades. At some point expression of the HIV genes is activated and viral particles are produced. Ultimately the infected cell dies and the virus escapes in search of a new host cell. Purified RT enzymes are used in biotechnology for a variety of applications. More specifically, RT is used to convert processed and purified eukaryotic mRNA into cDNA. Resulting cDNA can then be transferred and expressed in prokaryotic cells—as cDNA lacks introns.
Like chromosomes, plasmids are replicated and inherited by daughter cells. Unlike chromosomes, plasmids do not contain essential genes. 16 Plasmids contain accessory genes that confer a selective advantage in some circumstances. For example, a plasmid may contain a gene that confers resistance to an environmental stessor. Under normal conditions, the protein product is not required for cell survival. However, when the stressor is present, the genes on the accessory plasmid allow the cell to survive.
