Molecular Basis of Inheritance

Given the following template strand of DNA, answer the following questions: GP C2 A3 T4 A5 C G7 T8 A9 G10 CIGA GTCCCGAA CTC (Note: the numbers over the letters are just to help you identify where future mutations will be located, they do not affect the sequence) (a) Write the coding (complementary) DNA strand (b) Write the mRNA that would be transcribed from the template strand (the one provided in the question). (c) Using the genetic code table, write the amino acids (in sequence) that would actually form the polypeptide chain based on your mRNA. [Just use the 3 letter abbreviations found in the table.] For questions d-g what effect would the mutation have on the amino acid sequence and what effect would you expect the mutation to have on protein formation and function and why. Start with the original DNA sequence for each question (i.e. do not carry the mutations through to the next question) (d) If the last nucleotide of the DNA strand was mutated from a C to a T what effect would you expect it to have on protein formation and why? (e) If the 9th nucleotide of the DNA strand was mutated from an A to a G what effect would you expect it to have on protein formation and why? (f) If an AG were inserted between the 7th and 8th nucleotides (becoming GAGT) what effect would you expect it to have on protein formation and why? (g) If the 6th nucleotide of the DNA strand was mutated from a C to a G what effect would you expect it to have on protein formation and why?
