1 In the_-_model of DNA replication, each strand serves as a_for the synthesis of a_stand. Each daughter molecule comprises one_strand and one newly synthesised strand.
2 During DNA replication, the point where the two strands become separated is called the___
3__III forms a second strand by adding complementary nucleotides in the ^ direction.
4 During DNA replication, the__must be synthesised dis-
continuously, as a series of_fragments.
5 Mistakes in DNA replication are largely corrected by the cell's_
enzymes. Any errors that persist may lead to__
6 The function of genes was expressed in the one_, one,_
7 The flow of information: DNA ^ mRNA ^ protein is often referred to as the__of biology.
8 In the genetic code, many amino acids are encoded by more than one triplet sequence; the code is therefore said to be__Three of the_
triplet combinations do not code for an amino acid, but instead serve as _codons.
9 The enzyme RNA polymerase uses a single-stranded_template to synthesise a complementary strand of___
10 Transcription begins at a_sequence, situated_of the gene.
11 In bacteria, proteins with related functions may be encoded together; the result of transcription is a_mRNA.
12 In eukaryotes, genes are usually discontinuous; coding regions called _are interspersed with non-coding__
13 Molecules of tRNA act as adapter molecules during translation; at one end they have a three-base_complementary to a triplet codon, and at the other end carry the corresponding___
14 Lactose acts as an_for the three genes that make up the lac operon.
It neutralises the effects of a_protein encoded by the I gene.
15 The trp operon contains five genes involved in the synthesis of__The presence of this substance activates a_, which prevents transcription of the operon by binding to the_sequence.
16 A_mutation alters the__of a gene and will change the sense of the encoded message. Such a mutation arises through_
17 A_mutation changes a normal codon into a_codon, and results in the premature termination of translation.
1 8__such as 5-bromouracil mimic the structure of normal nucleotide bases and become_into the DNA structure.
19 The_test is used to assess the mutagenicity of a substance.
20 In Griffith's famous experiment,__cells of the virulent
S-strain appeared to pass on the ability to synthesise a capsule to the nonvirulent R-strain. Griffith coined the term__for the factor responsible.
21 Transformation only occurs between related cells as it depends on the donor DNA finding a_sequence on the host chromosome with which to
2 2__experiments can be used to map the order in which genes on a bacterial chromosome are transferred by__
23 In_transduction, chromosomal genes close to the point of integration of the_may be excised along with it and be transferred to another host cell.
24 In_transduction, fragments of_DNA are mistakenly packaged into phage coats and can be transferred to another bacterial cell.
2 5__are sequences of DNA that can move from one location on a chromosome to another.

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
