Conversations in genetics( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recorded on November 9, 2001, in the Kerckhoff Library at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA., David Anderson, Roger W. Sperry Professor of Biology and Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA., talks to Seymour Benzer, James G. Boswell Professor of Neuroscience, Emeritus (Active), California Institute of Technology. Benzer's experiments in genetics have had extraordinarily far-reaching consequences in modern biology. His groudbreaking studies on fine structure mapping of the T4 rII locus defined the concept of the gene for the first tim in terms that could be related to DNA, and led the way to understanding the genetic code, gene organisation and regulation. His prescient work on behavioural genetics in flies opened the new field of neurogenetics. The discovery of genes governing circadian rhythms, chemo- and phototaxis, courtship, and learning and memory demonstrated the feasibility of direct systematic investigation of the genetic control of behaviour by mutational analysis. Benzer is an icon in genetics. Rarely has a scientific investigator made contributions that have impacted diverse areas so dramatically. He has received numerous awards for his work including the Lasker Award, the Wolf Prize, the Bower Award, and the Crafoord Prize

Role of Apolipoprotein D and its homologs, in normal and pathological aging, in Drosophila melanogaster by Julien A Muffat( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The free radical theory of aging is probably the most enduring one to date. It stipulates that, in the process of normal cellular function, in particular due to oxygen-based respiration, reactive oxygen species are formed. These constantly put a strain on the cell, damaging lipids in the membranes, causing protein aggregation and loss-of-function, or mutations in the genome. Over time, this accumulated damage overcomes the repair potential of a given cell, and scaled up to an entire organism, results in the deterioration seen in normal aging. Under these assumptions, age-related pathologies are only an acceleration of the process in a given tissue, leading to the emergence of the pathology over the noise of normal aging. In the past decade, invertebrates such as Drosophila melanogaster and C. elegans have provided invaluable insight into these processes and the canonical pathways that regulate them. This success is owed in part to the power of the genetic tools available, to their relatively short lifespans, and to the wide arrays of phenotypes that can be studied. We set out to study a particular protein, Glaz, whose overexpression enables fruitflies to live 30% longer than normal. This protein was identified as a hit from a screen looking at an accelerated aging paradigm, placing fruitflies in 100% oxygen. While an interesting protein in its own right, it was through its homology with mammalian Apolipoprotein D (ApoD), that our interest was truly piqued. ApoD and its homologs turn out to be fascinating proteins, upregulated by various stresses and in age-related diseases such as cancers and Alzheimer's. We showed, in our model organism of choice, that this upregulation is part of a beneficial stress response. Understanding and harnessing its functions can only help provide therapeutic approaches for a wide range of disorders."

A demonstration of coding degeneracy for leucine in the synthesis of protein( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Different leucine sRNA's in E. coli are separable by countercurrent distribution. When these sRNA's are used as donors of labeled leucine during the synthesis of rabbit hemoglobin, in vitro, they distribute leucine differently into various peptides of the alpha-chain. One of the sRNA's introduces leucine only into a single position. The results indicate that there are at least two distinct codons for leucine in the amino acid code. (Author)
