Do NOW: In your notebook, compare and contrast DNA and RNA HW out on desk!!. R N A. What is RNA? Ribonucleic acid is genetic information . It is similar to DNA because it is also made of a sugar phosphate backbone and nitrogenous bases . . The structural differences between DNA and RNA.
What is RNA?Ribonucleic acid is genetic information.It is similar to DNA because it is also made of a sugar phosphate backbone and nitrogenous bases.
Read the directions carefully and perform the activity. You will transcribe and translate a gene!
LocationDNA transcription occurs in the nucleus because that is where DNA is located.
How Transcription Works1. The DNA strand unwinds2. Complementary RNA nitrogenous bases match up with one side of the DNA strand3. The RNA is released from the DNA strand.4. The DNA rewinds.5. The mRNA leaves the nucleus.
Translation is the process of translating the genetic code of mRNA into tRNA.
Protein Synthesis is the process of amino acids connected to tRNAbonding to form a protein.
Translation and Protein Synthesis happen simultaneously.
6. The process continues until a stopcodon is reached, releasing the protein.
