Genetics Exam 1

Ch 1, Ch 2, Ch 11, Ch 12, & Ch 13

Steps to Bacterial DNA replication (1-5) 1)proteins binding to dnaA boxes cause tension that opens up AT rich regions 2)Helicase unzips 3)Topoisomerase relieves supercoiling 4)Single stranded binding proteins keep strands seperated 5)primase creates primers
Steps to Bacterial DNA replication (6-9) 6)DNA pol III adds nucleotides to 3' end of primers 7)DNA pol I replaces RNA with DNA 8) Ligase covalently bonds fragments 9) Termination
Steps to Eukaryotic DNA replication 1)ORC binds to origin of replication 2)MCM helicase unzips DNA 3)DNA pol alpha creates primers 4)DNA pol delta elongates lagging strand 5)DNA pol epsilon elongates leading strand 6)flap endonuclease removes primers 7)ligase binds fragments
Eukaryotic chromosomes linear ~10,s to 100's mbp ~1000's genes per multipile origins of rep multiple kinds centromeres/telomeres

Nucleoid Nucleus like region in prokaryotes
Bacterial Chromosomes Circular ~1 mbp ~1000 genes per one type one origin of rep supercoiling
Hershey & Chase DNA is a hereditary molecule E coli infected wth radioisotope
Gene sequence of nucleotides with information to create a functional product (RNA/polypeptide)
Meiosis sexual reproduction eukaryotes only 4 genetically different daughter cells
Purines Adenine and Guanine
Pyrimadines Thymine and Cytosine
Nucleoside vs nucleotide without phosphate: nucleoside
Mitosis Growth, tissue repair, asexual reproduction eukaryotes only 2 genetically identical daughter cells
Eukaryotes vs bacteria Membrane bounds organelles Chromosomes plasmids
Similarities in E and B membranes ribosomes cytosol/cytoplasm DNA

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
