Innovation In Teaching and Learning

Cell Lines

A primary culture starts with biopsies from solid tissues or organs- embryos/ tumor cells --high proliferation capacity. These firmly attached cells have to be disaggregated to single cells-- mechanical dissociation and enzymatic detachment.

Animal cell culture techniques

19th Century Sydney Ringer developed salt solutions containing the chlorides of Na, K, Ca and Mg suitable for maintaining the beating of an isolated animal heart outside of the body. 1885: Roux maintained embryonic chick cells in saline

Preparation of Media

Culture medium is available in three forms from commercial suppliers: Powdered form: it needs to be prepared and sterilized by the investigator. Concentrated form: to be diluted by the investigator. Working solution: to be used directly without further manipulation.

DNA polymerases

In 1956, Arthur Kornberg and colleagues discovered DNA polymerase I (Pol I), in Escherichia coli. They described the DNA replication process by which DNA polymerase copies the base sequence of a template DNA strand.

DNA Replication

A gene is the sequence of nucleotides within a portion of DNA that codes for a peptide or a functional RNA Sum of all genes = genome

Chromosomal inheritance and gene location

Chromosomes contain the units of heredity (genes) Pair chromosomes segregate during meiosis, each sex cell has half of the number of chromosomes found in a somatic cell. (Mendel’s law of segregation)

Genetic code

Genetic Code The letters A, G, T and C correspond to the nucleotides found in DNA. They are organized into codons. The collection of codons is called Geneticcode.

Gene expression in Prokaryotic (Bacterial)

Regulator genes encode products that regulate the expression of other genes. In positive control mechanisms, the product of the regulator gene is required to turn on the expression of structural genes.
