Chapter 12: Protein SynthesisWhat is DNA?


Chapter 12 protein synthesis what is dna

Chapter 13 Protein Synthesis - Overview

The DNA of the gene is transcribed into RNA

Which is translated into protein

The flow of genetic information from DNA to RNA to Protein is called the CENTRAL DOGMA

Chapter 12 Protein Synthesis (Overview)

Central Dogma - FLOW IS FROM DNA TO RNA TO PROTEIN


Flow is from dna to rna to protein

FLOW IS FROM DNA TO RNA TO PROTEIN

Genes on DNA are expressed through proteins, which provide the molecular basis for inherited traits

A particular gene, is a linear sequence of many nucleotides

Specifies a polypeptide (long protein made of amino acids)

Chapter 13 Protein Synthesis (Overview)


Chapter 12 protein synthesis what is dna

Chapter 12 Protein Synthesis (Overview)

Genes - discrete units of hereditary information comprised of a nucleotide sequence found in a DNA molecule.


12 1 rna

12.1 RNA

Three Types of RNA

Messenger RNA (mRNA) – carries copies of genes (DNA) to the rest of the cell.

Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) – make up the ribosomes.

Transfer RNA (tRNA) – transfers the amino acids to the ribosomes as specified by the mRNA


12 1 messenger mrna

12-1 Messenger (mRNA)

Three main differences between mRNA and DNA

Ribose instead of deoxyribose

mRNA is single stranded

mRNA has uracil in place of thymine (U instead of T)

12.1TRANSCRIPTION: The process of making mRNA from DNA

Why do you need this process?

Location of DNA? Nucleus

Location of Ribosome? Cytoplasm

mRNA takes code from DNA in the nucleus to the cytoplasm

Transcription produces genetic messages in the form of mRNA

12.1 In the nucleus, the DNA helix unzips

And RNA polymerase lines up nucleotides along one strand of the DNA, following the base pairing rules

As the single-stranded messenger RNA (mRNA) peels away from the gene

The DNA strands rejoin

12.1 Eukaryotic mRNA is processed before leaving the nucleus

Noncoding segments called introns are spliced out leaving only the coding exons

A 5’ cap and a poly A tail are added to the ends of mRNA

12 3 protein synthesis translation

12-3 Protein Synthesis - Translation

  • Translation is defined as going from mRNA to protein

    • tRNA which have amino acids attached are going to the ribosome in the cytoplasm.

      • What are amino acids? monomers of proteins

      • Does the order of amino acids matter? Yes, they must be in order for the protein to fold correctly.

Amino acid

attachment site


Chapter 12 protein synthesis what is dna

How does the correct tRNA (with amino acid attached) bind to the mRNA? The tRNA contains an anticodon which matches up with the mRNA sequence (codon).

Transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules serve as interpreters during translation

Ribosomes build polypeptides (proteins)

A ribosome consists of two subunits

Each made up of proteins and a kind of RNA called ribosomal RNA

Chapter 12 protein synthesis what is dna

Elongation adds amino acids to the polypeptide chain until a stop codon terminates translation

Once initiation is complete amino acids are added one by one to the first amino acid

The mRNA moves a codon at a time

A tRNA with a complementary anticodon pairs with each codon, adding its amino acid to the peptide chain


Chapter 12 protein synthesis what is dna

Figure out the exact sequence of amino acids needed

  • Take the DNA and transcribe it into mRNA

    • Example: TAC ATA CTA GCG ACT

    • mRNA:

  • Take the mRNA sequence and decode it using the codon chart.

  • AUG

    AUG = MET

    UAU = TYR

    GAU = ASP

    CGC = ARG
