View Larger Image DNA enrichment by ChIP and SOLiD™ fragment library construction Comparison of ChIP Detection Platforms Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) is a method used to determine the location of DNA binding sites on the genome for a particular protein of interest. This technique gives a picture of the protein-DNA interactions that occur inside the nucleus of living cells or tissues.
These GM tomatoes, however, did not meet their expectations. Although they were approved in the US and several other countries, tomatoes with delayed ripening have disappeared from the market after peaking in 1998. At this point, no
Bio-Rad Laboratories has recently published a paper discussing the analysis steps performed by HRM software to identify thermal profile differences and examine the effect of assay optimization techniques, temperature increments, and instrument selection on the ability to distinguish different genotypes using HRM analysis. The authors found that the most important steps for robust HRM analysis [...] High resolution melt (HRM) analysis is a relatively new technique used in detecting small variations in DNA sequences between varying populations. Important applications of HRM include SNP analysis, genotyping and methylation analysis.
3.5.4 Explain the process of translation, leading to polypeptide formation. Include the roles of messenger RNA (mRNA), transfer RNA (tRNA), codons, anticodons, ribosomes and amino acids. 3.5.5 Discuss the relationship between one gene and one polypeptide. Originally, it was assumed that one gene would invariably code for one polypeptide, but many exceptions have been discovered. TOK: The way in which theories are modified as related evidence accumulates could be discussed, and whether contrary evidence should cause a theory to be discarded immediately if there are exceptions to it.
Lentiviral delivery of designed shRNA's and the mechanism of RNA interference in mammalian cells. RNA interference ( RNAi ) is a biological process in which RNA molecules inhibit gene expression , typically by causing the destruction of specific mRNA molecules. Historically, it was known by other names, including co-suppression , post transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS), and quelling . Only after these apparently unrelated processes were fully understood did it become clear that they all described the RNAi phenomenon.

Our animations are on Polymerase Chain Reaction Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enables researchers to produce millions of copies of a specific DNA sequence in approximately two hours. This automated process bypasses the need to use bacteria for amplifying DNA. This animation is featured in our "Spotlight Collection" on Polymerase Chain Reaction , along with video interviews with Kary Mullis, a 3D molecular animation of PCR, and several laboratory protocols.
In real-time PCR using SYBR green binding to amplified cDNA, we are simply measuring the fluorescence increase as the dye binds to the increasing amount of DNA in the reaction tube. We hope that this increase in fluorescence is coming from the DNA that we wish to measure but some of the signal could come from DNA other than that which we are trying to amplify. Is there any way to check that the correct fragments were amplified? One way to do some checking of the products is to do a melting curve. The real-time machine not only monitors DNA synthesis during the PCR, it also determines the melting point of the product at the end of the amplification reactions. The melting temperature of a DNA double helix depends on its base composition (and its length if it is very short).

Top, a control, wild-type embryo at the four-cell stage (left) and an mcm-5(RNAi) embryo showing altered nuclear appearance (right). The timing of cell divisions in this embryo is also abnormal (only one of the cells has divided a second time) after the first embryonic division. Middle, a wild-type, two-cell-stage embryo (left) and a F55H2.3(RNAi) embryo (right) showing vertical rather than horizontal orientation of the spindle pole bodies in the right-hand cell.
Simplified diagram of mRNA synthesis and processing. Enzymes not shown. Transcription is the first step of gene expression , in which a particular segment of DNA is copied into RNA by the enzyme , RNA polymerase . Both RNA and DNA are nucleic acids , which use base pairs of nucleotides as a complementary language that can be converted back and forth from DNA to RNA by the action of the correct enzymes .
