You are working in a laboratory, trying to identify how the nematode worm C. elegans senses and moves toward specific ?attractant? chemicals. You examine an electronic database that;compiles mRNA expression profiles of all nematode genes measured by DNA microarray;hybridization experiments, and find that an unknown gene is transcribed coordinately with;several genes known to be involved in the attractant response. You name this gene Unk1 and;set out to learn what it does.;A. Without doing a single experiment at the lab bench, how can you learn more about what the;Unk1 protein might be doing? How might this influence your choice of experiments with Unk1?;B. You decide to look for proteins that bind to Unk1, which may provide important clues to its;function. Briefly describe an approach to find binding partners.
