Triacylglycerol synthesis in plants is probably highly conserved. The metabolic pathway is here. The Jatropha genome sequence is also available. Given this some effort has been made to figure out how these genes are regulated. This is a microarray study of Jatropha focusing on fatty acid and TAG biosynthesis. This gives some idea of how TAG genes ...
Although the genetic code is almost conserved among organisms there are some issues to take in account, among which: Every organism has its own codon usage, i.e. the differences in frequency of occurrence in synonymous codons in coding DNA (that reflect the composition of tRNA abundances). So, for example, the codons UUU and UUC both encode for ...
Yes, bacteria will produce human (or any organism's) proteins if you introduce their genetic material but there are a few things to consider. First, the introns must be removed from the human genetic sequence. Bacteria do not have the machinery to splice out introns after transcription. This is typically done by using a viral protein to reverse transcribe ...
It works, and is actually done to make all the "human" insulin which is used by diabetes patients today. This is because the genetic code is almost completely conserved (with only very few exceptions in nature), so bacteria use the same codons to code for an amino acid as in humans. So with a suitable vector (a ring of DNA which carries extrachromosomal ...
All the organisms share a common ancestor and have evolved from it. So they share quite the same machinery for transcription and translation. Codons are also interpreted in the same way in almost all the organisms. So, yes translation should happen ( Assuming that the gene has been cloned in the right way.)
