  1. BIO 402/502 Advanced Cell & Developmental Biology I Section IV: Dr. Berezney

  2. Lecture 1 The Cell Nucleus and its Genome

  3. Organization of Eukaryotic Genome • Contrasting features of prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes with respect to size, percent of coding region and number of genes

  4. DNA renaturation plots for prokaryotic versus eukaryotic DNA demonstrate that: prokaryotic DNA is a unique sequence of DNA whereas eukaryotic DNA is composed of highly repetitive, moderately repetitive and unique sequences. Renaturation (Hybridization) of DNA • Simple sequence DNA such as satellite DNAs are separated by CsCl density gradients due to major changes in the AT versus CG content (A-T rich DNA has a lower density than GC rich).

  5. Alpha Satellite DNA • The human alpha satellite sequences at the centromere is an example of tandemly repeated sequences where two chromosomes are held together and connected by spindle fibers for separation of chromosome during mitosis.

  6. Introns and Exons:Most of transcribed DNA is intron (~ 90% of the gene sequence), e.g. thechicken ovalbumin genecontains 8 exons & 7 introns in over 7.7 kb of DNA. The exons (mRNA) total only 1.9 kb or about 25% of the total transcript, while thefactor VIII blood clotting factor geneis 186 kb with 26 exons that compose only about 9 kb or about 5% of the total sequence. Gene Structure

  7. Globin gene family;gene amplification:e.g, human type 1 interferon gene cluster is 480 kb in size and is composed of dozens of repeating genes and pseudogenes.Gene duplication or amplificationis a result of“unequal crossover”during meiosis & is a general mechanism of evolution of tandemly repeated DNA sequences. This is due to misalignment on the two homologous chromosomes. This also leads togene deletions. Gene Families & Pseudogenes

  8. Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)For detection of specific DNA sequences (e.g., genes) in the nucleus of cells and chromosomes on metaphase spreads Four step procedure • Prepare labeled DNA probes for DNA sequences of interest (e.g., genes, centromeric DNA, etc) • Hybridize labeled probes to sample on cover slip • Label with fluorescent probes • Detect and collect images

  9. Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) Procedure • Prepare DNA probes Gene 1  biotin-dNTPs  biotin labeled gene 1 Gene 2  digoxyigenin-dNTPs  dig labeled gene 2 • Add to cover slip following DNA denaturation • Renature DNA • Detect with alexa 488 (green) strepavidin and anti dig-alexa 594 (red); collect images on microscope

  10. Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) For detection of specific DNA sequences (e.g., genes) in the nucleus of cells and chromosomes on metaphase spreads.

  11. Telomeric sequences occur at ends of chromosomes and are essential for the replication of end DNA by telomerase. • Loss of telomeric sequences(telomerase knockout)leads to huge chromosome aberrations[chromosome fusion]. Telomeres

  12. Inversion:resealing of a double break in the reverse direction. This leads todeletions/duplicationsfollowing meiosis (unequal cross-over) and loss of viability. • Translocations:A piece of one chromosome becomes attached to another non homologous chromosome (characteristic of human cancers especially leukemias). • In chronic mylogenous leukemia (CML)chromosome #22 is shortened(“Philadelphia Chromosome”)not due to a deletion but a translocation in which the missing piece of #22 is translocated to chromosome #9. This occurs within an essential gene of #9 that codes for a protein kinase (c-abl) involved in cell proliferation. • DNA sequence organization is also very dynamic as revealed by DNA transposition mediated by mobile DNA elements calledtransposonsand associated transposon factors Chromosomal Aberrations 9 Chromosome 7 (red) / 12 (blue) Translocation Philadelphia Chromosome

  13. Eukaryotic cells:DNA is folded in the cell nucleus as a hierarchy of organization from nucleosome to the complete chromosome. • Prokaryotic cells:DNA is highly folded in nucleoid structures Genome Organization in the Interphase Cell Nucleus Packing ratio 104 680 40 7 1 Prokaryotic cell

  14. DNA(146bp)is wrapped(about 1.7 turns)around anoctamer of core histonesH2A, H2B, H3, H4 with H1 histone in between the nucleosomes and linker DNA of 15-55 bp between individual nucleosomes. 3-D Structure of the Nucleosome o 2.8 A 3-D structure

  15. Chromatin Organization on Nuclear Matrix • Chromatin loops (50-250 Kbp)are attached to nuclear matrix Loops of DNA Protein scaffold Chromosome painting Chromosome scaffold with DNA halo Nuclear matrix remaining after extraction of whole cells Chr #18 & 19 in human lymphocyte interphase nucleus Nuclear matrix with DNA halo In situ evidence for a chromatin loop organization
