What is RNA and Why is it Important?
Types of RNA
Codons & Anticodons
Amino Acids and The Codon Chart
Remember how the bases bond in DNA?
RNA is similarly complimentary:
In the nucleus
At the ribosome
UAC = tyrosine (1 amino acid)
AAU = asparginine ( 1 amino acid)
GUU = valine (1 amino acid)
tyrosine + asparginine + valine = 1 protien!
Transcription- Let’s Practice!
(remember, in RNA there are no T’s; use U’s!)
DNA = AGCTTA
*Codon: every three nitrogen bases (also called “bases”, “RNA nucleotides”, “nucleotides” or just the “letters”)
(3 nucleotides = 1 codon = 1 amino acid)
How many codons are above?
The process of matching tRNA to mRNA continues until all mRNA codons are matched to their anticodons and a “STOP” codon is read.
- The end result is a polypeptide (a protein)
If mRNA is
Find U for the first base
C for the second base
And G for the third base
-UCG codes for the amino acid Serine
- The anticodon AGC is on the tRNA that brings serine to the ribosome
What amino acid are the mRNA codons code for?
What is the mRNA strand?
What must the tRNAanticodons be to attach those amino acids?
What amino acids does the mRNA code for?
