The flashcards below were created by user Danielvu28 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. What happened in Griffith’s bacterial transformation experiment
    HARMLESS BACTERIA CHANGED INTO HARMFUL BACTERIA
  2. What happened when Griffith injected mice with the harmless, R-strain bacteria alone?
    The mouse lived
  3. What did Griffith observe when he injected a mixture of heat-killed, disease causing bacteria and live
    harmless bacteria into mice?
    THE MICE DEVELOPED PNEUMONIA.
  4. What did Avery conclude caused transformation?
    DNA IS THE TRANSFORMING FACTOR.
  5. Why did Avery’s experiment work?
    • BACTERIOPHAGE VIRUSES AND BACTERIA BOTH HAVE DNA
    • (DNA is a common component in each of them.)
  6. What do bacteriophages infect?
    BACTERIA
  7. Given the structure of a bacteriophage (See p. 340), where is the DNA?
    INSIDE THE HEAD OF THE VIRUS
  8. What is inside of a bacteriophage?
    NUCLEIC ACID
  9. Why did Hershey and Chase label the viral DNA with radioactive phosphorus and not radioactive
    sulfur?
    DNA CONTAINS PHOSPHORUS BUT NOT SULFUR
  10. What would Hershey and Chase have concluded if both radioactive 32P and 35S were found in the
    bacteria in their experiment?
    BOTH PROTEIN AND DNA WERE INJECTED INTO THE BACTERIA
  11. Which scientist made X-ray diffraction photos of DNA?
    FRANKLIN
  12. What is Rosalind Franklin’s contribution to the effort to identify the structure of DNA?
    X RAY DIFFRACTION PHOTOS OF THE DNA MOLECULE
  13. How is DNA like a book?
    DNA HAS STORED INFORMATION THAT CAN BE COPIED AND PASSED ON.
  14. What are the parts of a nucleotide?
    EXAMPLE = DEOXYRIBOSE + PHOSPHATE GROUP + CYTOSINE
  15. In eukaryotes where is the DNA?
    NUCLEUS
  16. Which term encompasses/includes all of the rest
    (DNA Molecules, histones, chromosomes, nucleosomes)?
    CHROMOSOMES
  17. How do the percentages of bases compare?
    • Adenine molecule percentage is about equal to Thymine molecule percentage.
    • Cytosine molecule percentage is about equal to Guanine molecule percentage.
  18. Why can’t adenine pair with guanine?
    THE BASES ARE BOTH LONG.
  19. What does DNA replication achieve?
    2 DNA MOLECULES EACH WITH ONE NEW STRAND AND ONE ORIGINAL STRAND
  20. Which enzyme adds base pairs to the strand during DNA replication (See p. 351)?
    DNA POLYMERASE
  21. In prokaryotes=bacteria what binds to the chromosome to start DNA replication?
    REGULATORY PROTEINS
  22. Given a template structure CTAGGT which new strand would be produced during DNA Replication?
    GATCCA
  23. In which cells is the accurate transmission of information most important?
    SEX CELLS = GAMETES
  24. What happens when a piece of DNA is missing?
    GENETIC INFORMATION IS LOST
