Harmless and pathogenic bacteria function differently in mice than in other organisms.
It demonstrated that harmless bacteria can become transformed into disease-causing bacteria by some association with pathogenic bacteria.
It established that pure DNA extracted from disease-causing bacteria transformed harmless strains into killer strains.
Dead cells lose their genetic information.
The genetic material is DNA, not protein.
DNA labeled with 35S and proteins labeled with 32P can be traced in the course of an experiment
They demonstrated that DNA labeled with 32P is transferred from the bacteriophage to the virus.
They established that proteins labeled with 35S become deactivated and unable to be transferred.
They demonstrated that bacteriophages transfer their DNA, not their protein coats, into their hosts.
DNA may be the hereditary material; although bacteriophages transfer both DNA and proteins into their hosts.
In a 5' to 3' direction only.
In a 5' to 3' direction building one strand and a 3' to 5' direction building the second half of a strand.
In a 5' to 3' direction building the first half of a strand and a 3' to 5' direction building the second half of a strand.
In a 3' to 5' direction building the first half of a strand and a 5' to 3' direction building the second half of a strand.
In a 3' to 5' direction on the "old" 3' to 5' strand.
Acquires a poly-A tail.
Is released from the STOP signal on the template.
Is stripped of its introns.
All of these.
Is nearly universal for all organisms.
Is based upon 64 codons made of sequences of three nucleotides.
Also comes equipped with "punctuation marks."
Is redundant, that is, many amino acids have more than one codon.
All of these.
More than 5
None of these
Serine -- histidine -- lysine.
Methionine -- arginine -- proline.
Methionine -- alanine -- serine.
Valine -- arginine -- leucine.
None of these.
The new codon may specify a different amino acid but may not change the function of the new protein produced.
The new codon may specify the same amino acid as the old codon.
The new codon and resulting amino acid may destroy the function of the protein specified.
The new codon may specify no amino acid.
All of these may be true.
A specific nutritional deficiency.
A genetic defect.
X chromosome inactivation.
