Beginning with this triplet code on the DNA, describe the effect that this change would have on the following: a. The nucleotide sequence on the template strand of the gene. b. The mRNA codon that results after this triplet code is transcribed. c. The anticodon on the tRNA molecule that is complementary to the mRNA codon described above.
When a protein is made in a cell, it is called gene expression, for the gene was shown. As the DNA is unwound and unzipped, transcription is occurring. Transcription is the process of going from DNA to mRNA. RNA is half a strand of DNA that uses the base uracil instead of thymine. mRNA is a type of RNA that is formed by putting complementary bases on the unzipped portion of DNA.
The nucleotide sequence on the template strand of the gene. ACA b. The mRNA codon that results after this triplet code is transcribed. UCU c. The anticodon on the tRNA molecule that is complementary to the mRNA codon described above. AGA d. The amino acid that would be carried by the tRNA molecule described above.
Replication Fork In the DNA double helix Topolisomerase relieves the tension. When Helicase breaks down the hydrogen bonds replication begins. Replication can take place in 2 directions because of the replication bubble. The enzyme Primase synthesizes the RNA primers. There has to be primers to start the synthesis at the 3’ end of the new strands.
“Both deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA and all types of ribonucleic acid or RNA are involved in the process,” (What Is Protein Synthesis, 2013.) Enzymes in the cell’s nucleus begin the process of protein synthesis by unwinding the needed section of DNA, so that RNA can be made. The RNA forms as a copy of one side of the DNA strand, and is sent to other areas of the cell to aid in the bringing together of different amino acids that form proteins. Protein synthesis is so called because proteins are synthesized through mechanical and chemical processes in the cell. Once the strand of RNA has been made in the nucleus, it is called messenger RNA.
DNA replication takes place in every nucleus in several stages. Firstly an enzyme called DNA helicase unwinds the two strands in the helix and the enzyme breaks the hydrogen bonds between the bases to make two separated strands. Primers are then added to the strands which indicate to a second enzyme DNA polymerase where to begin copying. The Polymerase enzyme attaches to the strand at the primers and then moves along the strand catalysing the addition of new complementary nucleotides to complete the new strand. The new strand will be exactly the same as the first as the bases haven’t changed order.
DNA specifies the synthesis of proteins, However, a gene does not build a protein directly, instead it dispatches instructions in the form of RNA, which then programs protein synthesis. This molecular chain of command is from DNA in the nucleus then to RNA then to protein synthesis in the cytoplasm. The two main stages are transcription and translation, transcription is the transfer of genetic information from DNA into an RNA molecule, translation is the transfer of the information from RNA into a protein. Describe each stage of the flow of information starting with DNA and ending with a trait. Information will always start with DNA then it will travel to the RNA and then the protein.
Gizmo Warm-up The Building DNA Gizmo™ allows you to construct a DNA molecule and go through the process of DNA replication. Examine the components that make up a DNA molecule. 1. What are the two DNA components shown in the Gizmo? The DNA components shown in the Gizmo are phosphate molecules and deoxyribose sugars 2.
This enzyme can work on 5; 3; direction so it duplicates the leading stand continuously. The DNA ligase enzyme repairs the single strand breaks into duplex DNA in living organisms using the complimentary strands. The Okazaki fragments are being shaped and connected together to form short double stranded DNA sections. C. In decoding the genetic information of a cell, transcription is the first step. An enzyme called RNA Polymerase, builds RNA molecules that complement a portion of one of the 2 strands of the DNA helix.
Enzymes are formed during transcription. During transcription, DNA unwinds to reveal a gene that codes for the production of an enzyme. A transcript called messenger RNA is produced from the code held in the gene. The messenger RNA leaves the nucleus via a nuclear pore and binds to a ribosome. The messenger RNA strand is then used to build up a precise sequence of amino acids.
