The primary step to determine the genetic effect removing these genes, known as the knock out (KO), have is to extract RNA from the prokaryote, more specifically its messenger RNA (mRNA). Ribonucleic acid, RNA, is the single stranded equivalent of DNA and is just as requisite for prokaryotic and eukaryotic existence. Messenger RNA, mRNA, transcribes the genetic material of DNA and brings it to the ribosomes throughout the cell to produce specific proteins, known as translation. For biotechnologists, it is critical to obtain mRNA in order to understand what material is being translated. Unfortunately, since there is no specific process to distinguish mRNA specifically between other types of RNA, such as transfer RNA, a general extraction of RNA becomes necessary.
An enzyme called RNA Polymerase, builds RNA molecules that complement a portion of one of the 2 strands of the DNA helix. Messenger RNA brings the instructions for coding, protein synthesis or transcripts to the Ribosomes via tRNA. . This is where the steps of protein synthesis take place. Translation is when the tRNA bring the amino acids to pair with their codons resulting in protein chains.
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.
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.
Now transcription is the synthesis of RNA under direction of DNA. Both nucleic acids use the same language, and the information is simply transcribed, or copied, from one molecule to the other. Just as a DNA strand provides a template for the synthesis of a new complementary strand during DNA replication, it provides a template for assembling a sequence of RNA nucleotides. The resulting RNA molecule is a faithful transcript of the gene’s protein-building instructions. In discussing protein-coding genes, this type of RNA molecule is called messenger RNA (mRNA), because it carries a genetic message from the DNA to the protein-synthesizing machinery of the cell.

The second step, translation then occurs and this takes place in the cytoplasm. There the messenger RNA communicates with a ribosome and the ribosome scans the sequence of mRNA bases. These sequences contain three bases that codes for a particular amino acid. Of the amino acids made, transfer RNA begins to builds the protein.
This copy is called mRNA, and its production is called transcription and splicing. 1. The start of each gene on DNA is marked by a special sequence of bases called the promoter. 2. The enzyme, DNA helicase breaks hydrogen bonds between base-pairs causing the strands of DNA to separate and the molecule to effectively unwind.

Contrast the functions of the three types of RNA molecules. Messenger RNA (mRNA) – copies the coded message from DNA in the nucleus and carries the message to the ribosome.
The Central Dogma of molecular biology is a framework which explains the flow of genetic information from DNA to RNA, RNA to polypeptides. Protein synthesis is made up of two main stages. The first is transcription, which is the transfer of information from DNA to RNA inside the nucleus. The second stage is translation. In translation, the RNA gets turned into a protein.
All amino acids have the same basic structure; containing NH2, at one end of the structure and the other end of the molecule a carboxyl group, -COOH. However each amino acid has a different R group. Protein synthesis in the body is a process called translation. Translation occurs in the cytoplasm that translates genetic codes assembled during DNA transcription into proteins. Cell structures called ribosomes help translate these genetic codes into the polypeptide chains.
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.
Transcription in prokaryotes and eukaryotes Transcription is the first stage of protein synthesis by which a molecule Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is synthesised from a complementary Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). In simpler words transcription is the transfer of information from DNA to messenger RNA, (Kent,2000). Before the process can begin, an enzyme DNA helicase breaks apart the hydrogen bonds binding the double helix into two separate strands thus exposing the bases of the required region; the transcription unit. A second enzyme by the name of RNA polymerase binds to a section of the separated DNA strand known as the promoting site and initiates the process of transcription. The RNA polymerase moves in the direction of 5’ to 3’ also known as downstream, unwinding the helix and pairing complementary free nucleotides within the cytoplasm of the cell to the exposed section of DNA.
mRNA which is the messenger RNA, is a molecule of RNA encoding a chemical "blueprint" for a protein product. mRNA is transcribed from a DNA template, and carries coding information to the the ribosomes. Here, the nucleic acid polymer is translated into a polymer of amino acids: a protein. In mRNA as in DNA, genetic information is encoded in the sequence of four nucleotides arranged into codons of three bases each. Each codon encodes for a specific amino acid, except the stop codons that terminate protein synthesis.
