If there are two genes A and C, the closer together they are, the more likely they are to remain together during meiosis (reproduced with permission from Professor Nick Wood) incorrect nucleotide), deletions, insertions, rearrangements or duplications. Molecular cloning techniques allow for the study of gene structure and function. Restriction endonucleases cut the DNA molecule at specific sites, allowing the fragments to be replicated on a large scale by transfecting other organisms, which produces multiple copies of an inserted DNA section.

An influx of negative ions such as Cl− leads to IPSPs, while an influx of positive ions such as Na+ will encourage EPSPs. Some ionophores are specific for chloride or sodium, others are less selective. With the G-protein-coupled receptors, interaction of the transmitter and receptor provokes alteration of intracellular metabolism by the stimulation of second messengers. In addition to neurotransmitter receptors, there are receptors for other chemicals, some of which help with the early development of neuronal systems, such as for nerve growth factors (NGF) and steroid receptors.

1 receptors are postsynaptic and excitatory, and α2 are both post- and presynaptic and inhibitory. At the presynaptic location they are involved in noradrenaline release, and their postsynaptic role is undetermined. 3). The α1 receptor is believed to play a role in smooth muscle contraction and has been implicated in effecting blood pressure, nasal congestion and prostate function. Although widely expressed in the CNS, the central role of the α1 receptor remains to be determined. Locomotor activation and arousal have been suggested by some studies.
