About Lesson

a) Monoclonal antibody: Antibodies derived from single parent cell and are specific for a particular location in body.

b) DNA Probes: Single strand of DNA to detect complementary sequence of nucleic acid.

c) Antibiotics: Drugs to treat bacterial infection.

d) Interferon: Signaling protein produced by host cell in response to presence of pathogen to heighten anti-viral defenses.

e) Micropropagation: Propagation of plant through tissue culture and growing them out.

f) Electrophoresis: Separation and analysis of macromolecules and their fragment using electrical charges.

g) Southern blotting: Procedure for identifying specific sequence of DNA.

h) Hybridoma: Biological tool for achieving complete immunization of human body for infection.

i) Micropropagation: Propagation of plant through tissue culture and planting them out.

j) Chimeric: Hybrid containing character from other gene/ species and replicate exactly same as the host genome.

k) Hybrid sorting: Selecting superior plants among haploid derived from F1 through anther culture.

l) Asymmetric hybrid: Obtain half character from both parents.

m) Symmetric hybrid: Gain character from one but loss other completely.

n) Cybrid: Formed by fusion of cytoplasm. Nuclear gene from one but cytoplasm from both.

o) Chimerism: Cell containing more than one genotype growing to adjacent tissue. It may be sectoral and periclinal.
