If an extra nucleotide is inserted in the first exon of the beta globin gene, what effect will it have on the amino acid sequence of the globin polypeptides? Will the globin most likely be fully functional, partly functional, or nonfunctional? Why?

Summary Introduction

To explain: The effect on the amino acid sequence of the globin peptides if an extra nucleotide is inserted in the first exon of the beta globin gene and whether the beta globin will be most likely to be fully functional, partially functional, or nonfunctional.

Introduction: Beta globin chains are present in the hemoglobin molecule and help in proper functioning of the molecule. Improper folding of globin chains due to change in their amino acid sequences causes sickle cell anemia, whereas disturbed balance in the number of the globin chain causes thalassemias.

Explanation of Solution

First exon region in any gene represents its promoter sequence. Promoter region of a gene controls the translation of the gene and the synthesis of protein due to that particular gene. Addition of extra nucleotide in the promoter reg...
