MCD BIO C141 Lecture Notes - Lecture 4: Monopteros, Dna-Binding Domain, Insertional Mutagenesis
Mcdb c141 week 2 lect 2 callus are undifferentiated plant cells. Explain how auxin regulates arf and aux/iaa activity. Predict phenotypes based on arf-aux/iaa pathway mutants identify unequal redundancy. It is a domain in monopteros forward genetics: the molecular genetics approach of determining the genetic basis responsible for a phenotype. This investigative process proceeds in the opposite direction of so-called forward genetic screens of classical genetics. Known degrons include short amino acid sequences, structural motifs and exposed amino acids (often. Lysine or arginine) located anywhere in the protein. Topless (tpl): homeotic: any of a group of genes that control the pattern of body formation during early embryonic development of organisms. These genes encode proteins called transcription factors that direct cells to form various parts of the body. Ctlh: feedback loop: monopteros (mp) embryos lack central and basal structures. In mp mutants, root and hypocotyl are replaced by a basal peg .
