Protein synthesis

Protein Synthesis


Important terms

Important Terms:

  • Gene-segment of DNA

  • DNA-blueprint for protein synthesis; information is “encoded”; 3 letters = 1 amino acid

  • Protein-manufactures in the ribosome and major building material for cells

  • RNA-single stranded; sugar is ribose; has uracil


3 types of rna

3 Types of RNA:

  • Transfer RNA (tRNA)-small, cloverleaf-shaped; recognizes m RNA codon in translation

  • Ribosomal RNA (rRNA)-helps form ribosomes

  • Messenger RNA (mRNA)-long, single nucleotide that resembles half of DNA molecule, carry message containing intructions for protein synthesis


2 major phases in protein synthesis

2 Major Phases in Protein Synthesis:

  • Transcription – complementary RNA is made at DNA gene

  • Translation – information carried in mRNA is “decoded” to make proteins; occurs in the cytoplasm

  • Example:

    DNA gene: AAT-CGT-TCG-ATT-GCG

    Transcription: UUA-GCA-AGC-UAA-CGC

    Translation : Leu-Ala-Ser-STOP


Events in translation

Events in Translation:

  • mRNA attaches to ribosomes

  • tRNA transfers amino acids to ribosomes (there are 20 common types of tRNA), tRNA have a special three-base sequence called anticodon on their “head” that can bind to complementary codons.

  • When tRNA is in position, ribosome moves the mRNA strand along bringing the next codon in position; joined together by enzymes.


Events in translation1

Events in Translation:

  • Amino acid is bonded and the tRNA is released and moves away from ribosome to pick another amino acid.

  • When the last codon is read “STOP”, the protein is then released.

How do you define cancer?

What is the difference between

benign and malignant tumor?

3.How does a typical colon cancer develops?

4.What is a carcinogen? Give some examples

5.What causes a normal cell to become

one?

6.What are the treatments for cancer?

7.Are there any side effects for the treatment of cancer? If yes, explain some of the side effects
