Exploring a Chlamydomonas reinhardtii gene

Start in Ensembl Plants and select the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii genome.

(a) What GO: biological process terms, GO: molecular function terms and GO: cellular component are associated with the Mut11 gene?

(b) Go to the transcript tab for the only transcript, PNW79810. How long is the transcript? How long is the protein it encodes?

(c) What is the PubMed ID and the title of the 2020 paper published about the Mut11 gene by Pandey et al?

(a) Go to http://plants.ensembl.org/index.html. Select Chlamydomonas reinhardtii from the drop-down list of species. Type mut11 and click on the gene name link in the results.

Click on the three GO links in the side menu.

Biological process: GO:0051568, histone H3-K4 methylation.

Molecular function: four terms, including GO:0003847 1-alkyl-2-acetylglycerophosphocholine esterase activity.

Cellular component: There are two terms listed, GO:0005634 nucleus and GO:0048188 Set1C/COMPASS complex.

(b) Click on the transcript named PNW79810 (or on the Transcript tab).

PNW79810 is 2130 bp in length. The protein it encodes is 370aa.

(c) Click on Literature in the left hand menu. Use the filter in the top right hand corner to search for Pandey.

The PubMed ID for the paper is 32817123, titled ‘Alternative Splicing During the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Cell Cycle’.
