Sample text

The Structure of DNA and RNA DNA is a long, ladder-like macromolecule that twists to form a double helix (Figure 1–8). Each strand of the helix is a linear polymer made up of subunits called nucleotides. In DNA, there are four different nucleotides. Each DNA nucleotide contains one of four nitrogenous bases, abbreviated A (adenine), G (guanine), T (thymine), or C (cytosine). These four bases, in various sequence combinations, ultimately specify the amino acid sequences of proteins. One of the great discoveries of the twentieth century was made in 1953 by James Watson and Francis Crick, who established that the two strands of DNA are exact complements of one another, so that the rungs of the ladder in the double helix always consist of A ᎏ T and G ᎏ C base pairs.

ACU Amino acid.............. thr 4 F I G U R E 1 – 12 A single nucleotide change in the DNA encoding b-globin (CTC → CAC) leads to an altered mRNA codon (GAG → GUG) and the insertion of a different amino acid (glu → val), producing the altered version of the b-globin protein that is responsible for sickle-cell anemia. Individuals with two mutant copies of the b-globin gene have sickle-cell anemia. Their mutant b-globin proteins cause hemoglobin molecules in red blood cells to polymerize when the blood’s oxygen concentration is low, forming long chains of hemoglobin that distort the shape of red blood cells (Figure 1–13).

This set the stage for the development of DNA cloning, or making large numbers of copies of DNA sequences. Soon after researchers discovered that restriction enzymes produce specific DNA fragments, methods were developed to insert these fragments into carrier DNA molecules called vectors to make recombinant DNA molecules and transfer them into bacterial cells. As the bacterial cells reproduce, thousands of copies, or clones, of the combined vector and DNA fragments are produced (Figure 1–14). These cloned copies can be recovered from the bacterial cells, and large amounts of the cloned DNA fragment can be isolated.
