TRANSVERSION: TRIPLET: A mutation in which a purine is replaced by a pyrimidine or vice versa. A sequence of three nucleotides in DNA or RNA. Usually means the same as codon. TWO-DIMENSIONAL GEL ELECTROPHORESIS: A technique in which a second electrophoretic separation is carried out perpendicular to the first. g. electric charge and molecular weight). UPSTREAM: Sequences that proceed in the opposite direction from expression.

It was soon realized that this was a general property of bacteria, and the isolation of other restriction enzymes with different specificities soon followed. But it was not until 1973 that the importance of these enzymes became apparent. At this time, Chang and Cohen at Stanford and Helling and Boyer at the University of California were able to construct in a test tube, a biologically functional DNA that combined genetic information from two different sources. This chimera was created by cleaving DNA from one source with a restriction enzyme to give a fragment that could then be joined to a carrier DNA, a plasmid.

They undergo marked changes when they are in close proximity to neighbouring bases, as usually shown in ordered secondary structures of oligo- and poly-nucleotides. In such ordered structures, the bases can stack face-to-face and thus share ␲–␲ electron interactions that profoundly affect the transition dipoles of the bases. 1). This phenomenon is reversed on unstacking of the bases. There are two important applications of this phenomenon. First, it is used in the determination of temperature-dependent and pH-dependent changes in base-stacking.
