Briefly describe the steps of DNA Replication. Agenda Replication Math Transcription: Making RNA. DNA Info. DNA never ever leaves the nucleus DNA is the master copy of the directions a cell needs to live so it needs to be protected. But DNA in the cytoplasm can be destroyed.
But DNA in the cytoplasm can be destroyed
DNA in the nucleus is safe
U – A
G – C
T – A
G – C
DNA safe in the nucleus
To send a message to the cytoplasm
Cytoplasm of cell
Transcription happens in the nucleus. An RNA copy of a gene is made.
Then the mRNA that has been made moves out of the nucleus into the cytoplasm
Once in the cytoplasm, the mRNA is used to make a protein
1. Does the mRNA model more closely resemble the DNA strand from which it was transcribed or the complementary strand that wasn’t used? Explain
2. Explain how the structure of DNA enables the molecule to be easily transcribed. Whys is this important for genetic information?
3. Whys is RNA important to the cell? How does an mRNA molecule carry information from DNA?
4. If DNA strand read AAC GTC GCG TAC, what would the mRNA strand be?
