Cells Lecture IV

DNA and Protein Synthesis


Biology Standards Covered

  • 1d ~ students know the central dogma of molecular biology outlines the flow of information from transcription of ribonucleic acid (RNA) in the nucleus to translation of proteins on ribosomesin the cytoplasm


The Structure of DNA

  • DNA is a long molecule made up of nucleotides

  • Each nucleotide is made up of three parts:

    • 5-carbon sugar called deoxyribose

    • Phosphate group

    • Nitrogen Base


The Nucleotides

Nitrogen Bases

A- adenine

G- guanine

C- cytosine

T- thymine

Adenine

Guanine

Cytosine

Thymine

(Deoxyribose)

5-Carbon Sugar

Phosphate group


Chargaff’s Rules

  • According to Erwin Chargaff:

    • Adeninealways pairs with Thymine

    • Cytosinealways pairs with Guanine


The Double Helix

Nucleotide

  • base pairing-hydrogen bonds forming only between certain “base pairs”

Hydrogen bonds

Sugar-phosphate backbone

Key

Adenine (A)

Thymine (T)

Cytosine(C)

Guanine (G)


DNA Arranged in a Chromosome


Central Dogma

  • The term central dogma is used in science to describe the “making of proteins” from instructions coded in the DNA

  • An equation to remember for Central Dogma would be:

    DNA mRNA Amino Acid Chain

Transcription

Translation


Transcription inside the Nucleus

Adenine (DNA and RNA)

Cystosine (DNA and RNA)

Guanine(DNA and RNA)

Thymine (DNA only)

Uracil (RNA only)

RNApolymerase

DNA

RNA


Transcription

  • Promoters – specific sites where the enzyme-protein RNA Polymerase binds to the strand of DNA to begin transcription


Central Dogma

  • Proteins are assembled into polypeptides

    • These are long chains of amino acids

    • There are 20 different types of amino acids

    • The properties of proteins are determined by which order these amino acids are joined


Central Dogma

  • Each of these amino acids that mRNA “codes” for recognizes the three base pair sequence

  • A codon consists of “three nucleotides in a row” that code for a single amino acid

    • AUG codes for the amino acid Methionine


The (20) Amino Acids

Methionine is the universal “start codon” for all proteins


Central Dogma

  • Along with the twenty amino acids there are “special” base pair sequences that “code for” startand stopcodons

  • Stop codons are like the “period at the end of a sentence”.

    • They signify the end of a polypeptide (amino acid chain)


The (20) Amino Acids


Translation

  • The term central dogma is used in science to describe the “making of proteins” from instructions coded in the DNA

  • An equation to remember for Central Dogma would be:

    DNA mRNA Amino Acid Chain

mRNA

Lysine

Phenylalanine

Methionine

Transfer RNA

Ribosome

Start codon

mRNA


Translation

  • Each strand of mRNA is separated into three base pairs called codons

  • AUG —- UUC --- AAA (mRNA)

  • This is where transfer RNAcomes in (tRNA)


Translation

  • tRNA is responsible for getting the right anticodon with each of the mRNA codons

  • An amino acidis attached to each anticodon

Lysine (Amino Acid)

tRNA

Ribosome

mRNA


Translation

The Polypeptide “Assembly Line”The ribosome joins the two amino acids & breaks the bond between the tRNA & it’s amino acid

Growing polypeptide chain

Ribosome

tRNA

Lysine

mRNA

Completing the Polypeptide

The process continues until the ribosome reaches one of the three stop codons. The result is a growing polypeptide chain.
