Variants of PCR (1)

The bacteriophage T4 DNA polymerase was also tested shortly after the first reports of PCR. It has a higher fidelity of replication than the Klenow fragment. Since it is also destroyed by heat, it has seen little use since the development of thermostable polymerases. The DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus (or Taq), was the first thermostable polymerase used in PCR, and is still the one most commonly used. The enzyme can be isolated from its 'native' bacterial source, or from a cloned gene expressed in E. coli. The Stoffel fragment is produced from a truncated gene for Taq polymerase, [more...]

Error-Prone DNA Repair Activity during Somatic Hypermutation in ...

Duplications and deletions were associated with N additions, suggesting participation of a DNA polymerase with some degree of template independence during the repair of DNA breaks initiated by activation-induced cytidine deaminase. Other mutations were consistent with some in vitro activities of mammalian translesion DNA polymerase η: tandem base substitutions, strand slippage, and small insertions/deletions. The nature of substitution patterns shows that DNA lesions at shark Ig genes recruit DNA repair factors with a species-specific repertoire of activities. We speculate that the tandem [more...]

What is Forensic Serology?According to forensic serologist Marcella Jones of www.ForensicMentor.com, forensic serology is the analysis of body fluids as they relate to forensic cases, including DNA analysis. Accordingly, the role of the forensic serologist involves:Examining evidence for the presence of body fluids e.g. blood, semen, hair, tissue, saliva, feces, and urineEvaluating evidence for potential DNA analysisEvaluating species of body fluidsPerform PCR (polymerase chain reaction) based typing of STR (short tandem repeat sequences) of genomic DNA, or mitochondrial sequence analysis of [more...]

DNA fingerprinting simplified

One of the most frequently used tools in biochemistry and biotechnology, agarose gel electrophoresis is a common forensic technique often used in genetic or DNA fingerprinting. The procedure is achieved by moving negatively charged nucleic acid molecules through a gelatinous substance known as agarose by using an electric field. Andrew, in collaboration with his father and other researchers, completed the study, which is published in the January 2008 issue the American Society of Horticultural Science’s journal HortTechnology.

My Helical Tryst: Single Molecule DNA Sequencing

There are a number of companies that have recently launched competing technology platforms that are capable of sequencing DNA at the single molecule level. You may ask, why? Well, the answer is simply cost-effectiveness. DNA sequencing technology has been around for several decades, and to date, the Human Genome Project (HGP) is considered the pinnacle application of that technology. The cost of the HGP was approximately $3 billion and took about a decade and half. It was the molecular biology equivalent of putting a man on the moon. But what is the next step? Well, if we can systematically [more...]

Herpes Helper Activities for Adeno-Associated Virus Replication

The present study was conducted to integrate these observations and to further explore the requirement of other HSV-1 proteins during early AAV replication steps, i.e. rep gene expression and AAV DNA replication. Using a cellular model that mimics AAV latency and composite constructs coding for various sets of HSV-1 genes, we first confirmed the role of ICP0 for rep gene expression and demonstrated a synergistic effect of ICP4 and, to a lesser extent, ICP22. Conversely, ICP27 displayed an inhibitory effect. Second, our analyses showed that the effect of ICP0, ICP4, and ICP22 on rep gene [more...]

Responding to Merlin Part III – Merlin's Delineation Between ...

In bacteria, this is often done by increasing transcription rates using a mutagenic DNA polymerase. In your immune system this is done, at least in part, by a deaminase attaching to the antibody gene to cause mutations. This deaminase is targeted by a non-coding DNA element, which points it not only to the correct gene, but the correct *part* of the correct gene. It would make no sense to mutate the part of the antibody which attaches to the cell, but only the part which attaches to the antigen. And, in fact, that is precisely the part that gets mutated. The region which attaches to the [more...]

Science Webulagam: Ribonucleic acid (RNA)

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a biologically important type of molecule that consists of a long chain of nucleotide units. Each nucleotide consists of a nitrogenous base, a ribose sugar, and a phosphate. RNA is very similar to DNA, but differs in a few important structural details: in the cell, RNA is usually single-stranded, while DNA is usually double-stranded; RNA nucleotides contain ribose while DNA contains deoxyribose (a type of ribose that lacks one oxygen atom); and RNA has the base uracil rather than thymine that is present in DNA. RNA is transcribed from DNA by enzymes called RNA [more...]

DNA Polymerase and other factors

DNA polymerase can add free nucleotides to only the 3’ end of the newly-forming strand. This results in elongation of the new strand in a 5'-3' direction. No known DNA polymerase is able to begin a new chain (de novo). DNA polymerase can add a nucleotide onto only a preexisting 3'-OH group, and, therefore, needs a primer at which it can add the first nucleotide. Primers consist of RNA and DNA bases with the first two bases always being RNA, and are synthesized by another enzyme called primase. An enzyme known as a helicase is required to unwind DNA from a double-strand structure to a [more...]

In most cells, 100-1000 Okazaki fragments are produced for each replicative DNA polymerase present in the cell. For fast-growing cells, this necessitates rapid recycling of DNA polymerase on the lagging strand. Bacteria produce long Okazaki fragments (1-2 kb) and utilize a highly processive DNA polymerase III (pol III), which is held to DNA by a circular sliding clamp. In contrast, Okazaki fragments in eukaryotes are quite short, 100-250 bp, and thus the eukaryotic lagging strand polymerase does not require a high degree of processivity.
