Starting stopping translation

Starting & Stopping Translation

Joohee Kim

Sec. III

IB Biology


Genetic information

Genetic Information

  • Genetic information flow can be divided into 3 stages

  • 1. Replication: DNA is duplicated

  • 2. Transcription: information from DNA is transferred to RNA

  • 3. Translation: information in mRNA is used to build polypeptides


Translation process of protein synthesis

Translation: Process of Protein Synthesis

  • 1.Initiation: 2 ribosomal subunits assemble with mRNA

  • 2.Elongation: amino acids are brought to ribosome and are added to growing polypeptide

  • 3.Termination: occur when ribosome reaches stop codon


Overview of translation

Overview of Translation


How is reading frame chosen

How is Reading Frame Chosen?

  • Reading Frame: Non-overlapping set of three-nucleotide codons in RNA

  • Genetic code contains signals for starting and stopping translation.

  • Start Codon: AUG

  • Stop Codon: UAA, UAG, UGA


Start codon stop codons

Start Codon & Stop Codons

  • Start Codon: AUG

  • => signal for starting translation

  • Stop Codon: UAA, UAG, UGA

  • => signal for stopping translation
