RNA People Nothing
Because they were first found in the nucleus of a cell
How did nucleic acids
get their name?
A double helix
What is the structural shape
It carries a coded message from
the DNA to the ribosomes.
What is m-RNA?
What is messenger RNA?
The basic unit of the polymer
that we call a nucleic acid.
What is a nucleotide?
The partner to a phosphate molecule
and a nitrogenous base making up the
basic unit of DNA.
What is a deoxyribose sugar?
The two alternating components
of DNA siderails
What are sugar and phosphate?
The significant other for guanine
What is cytosine?
The AAG, CCT or GTA of DNA
What are triplet codons?
The long name for DNA
What is deoxyribonucleic acid?
The process by which new DNA
is made in the nucleus
What is replication?
A single helix molecule
What is ribonucleic acid?
The type that is the anticodon
What is transfer RNA?
What is t-RNA?
Pairs with t-RNA coming
to the ribosome to meet m-RNA
What is the amino acid?
The process by which m-RNA
What is transcription?
The process by which the RNA
code is read and turned into a long
protein polymer of amino acids
What is translation?
An Englishman and an American
who first described the double helix
structure of DNA
Who are Watson and Crick?
He has taught these same facts about nucleic acids at Post Falls High School for 33 years and still finds them exciting and interesting
Who is Mr. Cossette?
The one contributor to DNA structure
Who didn’t receive a Nobel Prize
(Because of her death)
Who is Rosalind Franklin?
She did important work with Watson
and Crick (producing X-ray photos of
helical DNA) but didn’t get the Nobel
prize because she was deceased by
Who was Rosalind Franklin?
Franklin’s research partner in DNA
X-ray who shared the 1962 Nobel Prize
for biochemistry with Watson and
Who is Maurice Wilkins?
It’s the NICE THING that t-RNA gives
m-RNA when they meet at the ribosome
What is a complement?
It is the RNA equivalent to the
DNA base thymine
What is uracil?
It is the shape of m-RNA
What is a helix?
It is the kind of organism that
doesn’t have DNA or RNA
(remember the category)
What is “nothing”?
They are special protein molecules
that are responsible for taking care
of all of the details in replication,
transcription, translation, and
What are enzymes?
A world-renowned biochemist, knight, and Nobel Laureate who visited EWU in 1986; applauded the questions of PFHS students; and gave his autograph to Mr. Cossette
Who is Sir Francis Crick?
