Give a specific example of how the introduction of a gene into a bacterium can change the phenotype of the bacterium. Also explain the specific role of the protein expressed by the gene in changing the bacteriums phenotype. You have isolated one of the genes for producing once of the blood-clotting proteins needed by some hemophiliacs. Briefly describe how you could create bacteria that would produce this protein. ANSWER:

Part 1: Examples

Transformation with pGLO green fluorescent protein plasmid. The bacterium will now appear green under UV light.

Transgenic bacteria can produce new products e.g. human insulin if the gene is inserted into the bacterium.

Suppose a strain ofE. colithat has been made competent to allow it to incorporate and produce a plasmid containing...
