Based on glycolysis and lactose intolerance, speculate what might cause trehalose intolerance. Lactaid is brand name product which contains the enzyme lactase. Trehalose is a disaccharide produced in some insects as energy storage

The experiments showed glycolysis does not occur significantly without lactase which breaks down lactose. Trehalose intolerance could occur if insects do not posess the proper enzyme to break down trehalose. There is nothing that cleaves the bonds of trehalose. However just like how lactase can be obtained in the form of lactaid, the enzyme that breaks down trehalose can likely be obtained in other ways

Assuming perfect efficiency, the number of PCR products present in solution doubles after each cycle of a PCR reaction. Given that 2⁵=32, explain why there will be more than 32 copies of PCR product after 5 cycles of PCR.

The PCR begins with multiple copies of the template DNA, so more than one PCR product is produced by the first cycle

What is the function of the lacY gene?

Transports lactose into the cell

New cards
94

Describe how negative regulation of the lac operon is relieved when lactose is encountered. Specifically mention key molecules involved.

Negative regulation is when the repressor Lacl binds to the operator preventing lac expression. Lactose interacts with LacZ (beta-galactosidase) to create allolactose which binds to the repressor causing the repressor not to be able to bind to the operator.
