SNC4M Culminating Activity Phase 2

  1.  Identify the full name of the protein encoded by your gene.
  2. What is the function of the protein?  What does it do?
  3. Use the NEB cutter and identify the beginning of the a) start codon and b) the stop codon.  Provide screenshots of this to show how you identified these locations.
  4. How many amino acids long is the protein?
  5. Show the whole amino acid sequence from NCBI.
  6. Find a protein structure image of your protein.  The image you find may show it working with other proteins or on its own.
  7. Hand-draw the full molecular structure of the first four amino acids of your protein.  Identify each of these amino acids as polar, non-polar, positive or negative.
  8. What disease or condition is your protein associated with?
  9. Describe the disease or condition in terms of it’s symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis, treatments and possible outcomes for individuals with this disease or condition.  (This question should be at least one page in length).
  10. Identify and describe some current research that is happening with your gene.
  11. Make a list of references you used in APA format.
