Biochemistry and Cell Signaling Pathway of the Mc1r Gene

Biochemistry and Cell Signaling Pathway of the Mc1r Gene

This activity supports concepts presented in the short film Natural Selection and Adaptation about the evolution of different fur colors among rock pocket mouse populations. The activity challenges students to analyze partial DNA sequences of the Mc1r gene to identify the effects of mutations on the MC1R protein pathway.
