DNA &

Translation

dna and translation
Gene: section of DNA that creates a specific protein

Approx 25,000 human genes

Proteins are used to build cells and tissue

Protein synthesis involves two processes:

1) Transcription

2) Translation

DNA and Translation
slide3

Transcription Review

  • Transcription takes place in the nucleus
    • 1) DNA double helix is broken apart
    • 2) mRNA nucleotides match up
    • 3) Finished mRNA detaches, and moves to a ribosome
slide4
Codon: Combination of 3 mRNA nucleotides

Each mRNA codon matches with 1 of 20 amino acids

Ribosome reads codons 1 at a time

Codon AUG = Methionine (Start)

Codon GUU = Valine

Codons UAA or UAG or UGA = Stop

The Genetic Code

Translation Overview

  • Defined: Process of making proteins
    • Step 1: mRNA enters ribosome
    • Step 2: Ribosome reads one mRNA codon at a time
    • Step 3: tRNA delivers amino acids until a protein is created
translation details
Translation begins when the mRNA codon “AUG” is read by the ribosome

Each mRNA codon matches with a specific amino acid

AUG = methionine

GCU = alanine

tRNA carries over the proper amino acid

tRNA anticodon matches with the mRNA codon

Ensures proper match

One by one, amino acids are linked together

Translation ends when a “stop” codon is read by the ribosome

End result: Protein

Translation Details
slide7

Now the codon and anticodon match. This ensures the proper amino acid (serine) is delivered.

This is why the anticodon is important!

Because the codon and anticodon don’t match, the wrong amino acid will not be delivered.

slide8

Questions to answer:

  • List the amino acids that will be delivered to this ribosome.
  • 2) What is the anticodon of each codon?
  • 3) When finished, how many amino acids in size is this protein?

Kobe Kuiz
  • Define transcription? Translation?
  • What are genes and how are they different from chromosomes?
  • How many nucleotides make a codon?
  • The anticodon can be found on which object?
  • The anticodon must match the ______.
  • Place the following steps in order from start to finish:

a. Proteins are assembled

b. Ribosome reads a codon one at a time

c. mRNA arrives at the ribosome

d. tRNA delivers amino acids to the ribosome

7) Be able to solve practice problems similar to the three examples on slides #9-11.
