Targeting the pol gene in pig DNA works to remove the 62 porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV)genes because the pol gene is typically ________ in all 62 copies of PERV genes and ________ in other pig genes.
Multiple Choice
Answer:
arrow
The CRISPR-Cas9 complex cuts through both strands of DNA in two neighboring sites.The chromosome does not break apart because during normal repair processes,the DNA sequences between the cut sites are
Multiple Choice
Answer:
arrow
Before using the CRISPR-Cas9 system to edit the pig genome,it is necessary to sequence the pig DNA to identify any copies of porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV)DNA.Knowing the PERV DNA sequences will help researchers determine which ________ sequences to use as guides for the CRISPR-Cas9 complex.
Multiple Choice
Answer:
arrow
Researchers used the CRISPR system to make 455 different cuts in the porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV)pol genes in the pig genome.All of the PERV genes were inactivated in the pig embryos even though only 20 percent of the resulting mutations were larger than nine base pairs.The resulting mutations were successful at knocking out the PERV genes because
