Splice and patch recombinants result.TransposonsIn 1950, Barbara McClintock showed that activator genes in corn could move freely about the genome.This was at first viewed as heresy and McClintock was ostracizedMolecular biologists in the late 1970s rediscovered what McClintock knewShe received a MacArthur Award in 1981 and a Nobel in 1983Immunoglobulin GenesImmunoglobulin genes maximize protein diversity with a limited amount of genetic informationDNA rearrangement (genetic recombination) during assembly of IG genes accounts for this diversityThree separate genes are combined to form the L-chain geneFour genes combine to form H-geneMolecular Nature of MutationPoint mutations - one base for another - arise from mispairing, insertion of analogs or chemical mutagensMutagens include nitrous acid, hydroxylamine and alkylating agentsInsertions and deletions result in frameshift mutationsPrions Proteins as Genetic Agents?Prions are ‘protein infectious particles’Agents composed only of proteinResponsible for kuru, Creutzfeld-Jacob disease, mad-cow disease, etc.The ‘infection’ appears to involve a change of secondary structure and conformation (or conformations!) in the prion proteinA Nobel for Stanley Prusiner in 1997Transgenic AnimalsGenes can be introduced into animals by transfection - injection of plasmid DNA into recipient cellsPlasmids can be injected into fertilized eggs in miceExpression is usually variable, because the gene is inserted randomlyGrowth hormone transfection produces mice that are very large!
