BIOL 1101 Idaho State University Biology and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Analysis Hello! I have a short list of questions that were provided to us by my professor for my biology class. It should be done pretty fast, it’s due by tomorrow at 9:00 AM (Idaho Time). It’s a somewhat short list of questions that could be done fairly easily I think! Here it is in a PDF below. Thanks! Writing Assignment #5 – Due Thursday, April 23, 9am
We have focused on answering the question, “Why are only some people
affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)?” for the past few
weeks. For Writing Assignment #5, I would like you to compose a complete
explanation to this question, using the biology concepts we have learned. A
complete explanation will describe how DMD is inherited and how it
manifests in the body by answering the following questions:
1.
How does someone acquire (get) Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy? Is
DMD inherited from a person’s parents or do they get it from the
environment? Explain.
2.
Who is more likely to acquire DMD, boys or girls? Why is that? Could
a person have a mutated gene for dystrophin but not have DMD? How?
3.
Genes include information used to make something in cells. What is
supposed to happen with the information on the gene for dystrophin and
what happens when a person has a mutation of the gene?
4.
What is the function of dystrophin in muscles? How does a mutation
affect the function of dystrophin?
5.
If we found a way to repair a single cell with the mutated gene for
dystrophin in a 2-year old child, could we cure DMD by repairing that single
cell?
