information is in our DNA? One copy of Homo sapiens DNA contains three billion base pairs located on 23 chromosomes. This amount of DNA could code for three million genes of average size (1000 bp). However, in reality, it only codes for approximately 50,000 genes. So, only a few percent of our DNA actually codes for protein! We don't know why this is so but it does provide us with some interesting observations on the sequence
content. DNA that codes for protein. These are the exons of genes ~ 2-3% Non-coding single copy, non-repetitive~ 68% Non-coding repetitive DNA ~ 30%. Of this: 2/3 Randomly repetitive (or 20% total DNA) 1/3 Tandemly repetitive (or 10% total DNA) 1985 One type of this last group is called Variable Number Tandem Repeats or VNTR. This DNA is: Non-coding and 9100bp in length Repetitive
The repeating sequence is repeated next to itself (tandem) The number of repeats is variable from person to person The VNTR DNA can be used in one method of obtaining a DNA fingerprint. This method is called Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism and results in an RFLP Fingerprint Other Repetitive Units ---1991 Many non-coding regions have no
known function, and are sometimes referred to as "junk DNA." Microsatellites are one example of such "junk DNA. Microsatellites, or Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs), are polymorphic loci present in DNA that consist of repeating
units of 1-6 base pairs in length Microsatellites occur in "noncoding" DNA, that is, DNA that is not transcribed into messenger RNA to code for proteins. STRs are similar to SSRs however the number of repeating bases are less (usually
2-6 bp in length) The number of repeats of the SSRs is highly variable between individuals. 2-4 STR-PCR DNA Restriction Enzymes
Evolved by bacteria to protect against viral DNA infection Endonucleases = cleave within DNA strands Over 3,000 known enzymes Enzyme Site Recognition Restriction site Palindrome
Each enzyme digests (cuts) DNA at a specific sequence = restriction site Enzymes recognize 4- or 6- base pair, palindromic sequences (eg GAATTC) Fragment 1 Fragment 2
5 vs 3 Prime Overhang Generates 5 prime overhang Enzyme cuts Common Restriction Enzymes EcoRI Eschericha coli
5 prime overhang Pstl Providencia stuartii 3 prime overhang The DNA Digestion Reaction Restriction Buffer provides optimal conditions NaCI provides the correct ionic strength Tris-HCI provides the proper pH Mg2+ is an enzyme co-factor
DNA Digestion Temperature Why incubate at 37C? Body temperature is optimal for these and most other enzymes What happens if the temperature is too hot or cool? Too hot = enzyme may be denatured (killed) Too cool = enzyme activity lowered, requiring longer digestion time Restriction Fragment
