message

  • Translation requires:

    • Messenger RNA (mRNA)

    • Transfer RNA (tRNA)

    • Ribosomes

    • ATP

    • Enzymes (translation factors)

Molecular genetics

Translation

  • Transfer RNA (tRNA):

    • Molecular interpreter

    • Matches amino acids with codons in mRNA using anticodons

Amino acid

  • Ribosomes:

    • Coordinate the functions of mRNA and tRNA

    • Made of two subunits

    • Contain ribosomal RNA (rRNA)

Molecular genetics

Mutations

  • A mutation is any change in the nucleotide sequence of DNA.

  • Mutations can change the amino acids in a protein.

  • Mutations can involve:

    • Large regions of a chromosome

    • Just a single nucleotide pair
