DNA is the ____ of protein synthesis
are the segments of DNA carrying instructions for polypeptide chain
the genetic information in the mRNA is translated into a specific protein encoded by the gene
a region of DNA which codes for a single protein or polypeptide
produces an mRNA copy of the gene
transcription of DNA
- messenger RNA
- carries message to nucleus to ribosomes
a necessary DNA sequence that specifies the position of transcriptional initiation (on/off switch)
coding region or transcription unit
sequence of DNA "downstream" of promoter that encodes polypeptide
to make RNA oug of a DNA templet
enhancers that gets everything together and ready
after the _____ the DNA starts transcribing
RNA polymerize ____DNA and makes RNA templet and then______ the DNA. This is called what?
- winds back up
when the RNA polymerase reaches its stopping point
now there is an mRNA ready to be released
before the mRNA can be released what must happen?
introns and exons must be taken out
what do RNA codons do?
they code for amino acids according to a "universal" genetic code
mRNA that fo to ribosomes in cytoplams will ___ in the cell
if the mRNA foes to rough ER they will____ the cell
- where rRNA is made
- proof reads amino acids
- moves the transitional machinery as polypeptides is being synthesized
- help tRNA match base pairing
the adaptor which reads codons (AGUC)
it brings amino acids according to what nucleic acids the are in the mRNA
carries genetic information from DNA in the nucleus to the ribosomes in the cytoplams
structural component of ribosomes
process in the ribosome
- A to P to E
each bond between amino acids are what?
free ribosomes do what?
bound ribosomes in ER do what?
- initiates synthesis of all proteins
- complete synthesis of proteins
entire set of genes for single organism
the process of cells becoming different
as cell differentiate...
genes that are no longer needed get turned off
cause a change in the genetic information
what cause mutations?
natural mistakes during DNA replication
toxins or radiation
a disease that gets passed along in genes
a mutation of genes for proteins that control the _____ may lead to cancer
cell growth and differentiation
