  • Hello,

    I am a BTech biotech student  and while I was studying some gene prediction methods I came up with a question in my mind that how researchers are able to find the required gene segment from whole genome set of an organism? From where do they get to know about the location of gene segment in the genome set which is responsible for the improper functioning of some or other things(experimental methods).DNA consist of extremely long series of base pairs and how it is possible to identify ,which sequence is responsible for which protein,disease or some other functions? kindly help me in this topic.

    Thank you

    As per a recent study conducted by the government, Five different hazardous heavy metals and toxins were found as contaminants in beverages of PepsiCo and Coca Cola.  

    Heavy metals found pertained to: antimony, lead, chromium and cadmium while the toxic compound found consistently was DEHP or Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate. These contaminants were observed to be prevalent in samples of Coca Cola, Pepsi, Sprite, Mountain Dew and 7Up.

    Study was commissioned by the Drugs Technical Advisory Board and it has been indicated that the source of these contaminants in the cold drinks is polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles (bottles they are packed in).

    Astonishingly,  no permissible limits have been prescribed for heavy metals in cold drinks in India. 

    Following is a brief of the level of contamination observed:

    Quote:Sprite: 0.015 mg/L of antimony, 0.007 mg/L of lead, 0.003 mg/L of cadmium, 0.015 mg/L of chromium, and 0.016 mg/L of DEHP

    Quote:Coca Cola: 0.006 mg/L of antimony, 0.009 mg/L of lead, 0.011 mg/L of cadmium, 0.026 mg/L of chromium, and 0.026 mg/L of DEHP. 

    Quote:Mountain Dew: 0.012 mg/L of antimony, 0.006 mg/L of lead, 0.016 mg/L of cadmium, 0.017 mg/L of chromium, and 0.014 mg/L of DEHP. 

    Quote:Pepsi: 0.029 mg/L of antimony, 0.011 mg/L of lead, 0.002 mg/L of cadmium, 0.017 mg/L of chromium, and 0.028 mg/L of DEHP. 

    Quote:7UP: 0.011 mg/L of antimony, 0.004 mg/L of lead, 0.012 mg/L of cadmium, 0.017 mg/L of chromium, and 0.018 mg/L of DEHP.

  • 10/17/16--10:08: fusion gene
  • Respected sir,

    I am a B tech Biotech student . while I was trying to learn the method to create fusion gene for a transgenic plant , I was unable to understand  some points. The method was given like this..."A primer was designed to introduce a BamH1 site and to remove the translational stop codon at 3' end of cry1B gene sequence.such a step preserve the protease  processing site in cry1B sequence. The cry1B gene was amplified and restricted with Nco1 and BamH1 and cloned in pBluescript KS+......"
    So, I am unable to get this (i) preservation of protease processing site , and (ii) pBluescript KS+ .
    kindly help me regarding these concepts and also, elaborate me the process of gene fusion.

    Thank you.

    Consumer report on America’s Antibiotic Crisis 2015 has revealed that more than 8000 patients die each year due to MRSA infection and approximately 60,000 patients are sickened by it. Linezolid remains a standard treatment for MRSA infection. However, due to its high cost, the need for alternative has become apparent. A triple β-lactam combination i.e. Meropenem, Piperacillin and Tazobactam (ME/PI/TZ) was tested against highly resistant MRSA strain (23 diverse antibiotics) by NIH. It was found that this trio was acting synergistically and showing bactericidal action against MRSA. It also suppresses the evolution of resistance via reciprocal collateral sensitivity of MRSA constituents. A similar efficacy of this trio was also demonstrated as compared to Linezolid by performing a final test on MRSA infected mice for 6 days.
