Sample text

These organisms have elaborate systems to ensure their safety from invading pathogens. Conceptual questions 1. Discuss some of the characteristics of model organisms. 2. Why might a researcher prefer a bacterium, such as E. coli, over Neurospora, a fungus? 3. When might a researcher prefer Neurospora rather than a bacterium, such as E. coli ? Discussion points 1. The “one gene-one enzyme” hypothesis proposed by Beadle and Tatum states that every gene in an organism encodes one enzyme that is used to catalyze specific cellular reactions.

In addition to those genes that affect the characteristics of the organism more or less directly, there are also many regulatory genes. These control other genes; hence their effects on the organism are less direct and more complex. Each gene may exist in alternative forms known as alleles, which code for different versions of a particular inherited character (such as red versus white flower color). The different alleles of the same gene are closely related but have minor chemical variations in their DNA that may produce significantly different outcomes.

4. Phenotypes and Genotypes In real life, most biochemical pathways have several steps, not just one. To illustrate this, extend the pathway that makes red pigment so it has three steps and three genes, called A, B, and C. If any of these three genes is defective, the corresponding enzyme will be missing, the red pigment will not be made, and the flowers will be white. Thus, mutations in any of the three genes will have the same effect on the outward appearance of the flowers. Only if all three genes are intact will the pathway succeed in making its final product (Fig.
