rna and protein synthesis

RNA and Protein Synthesis

Section 12–3

This section describes RNA and its role in transcription and translation.

the structure of rna
The Structure of RNA

List the three main differences between RNA and DNA.

  • RNA has ribose sugar instead of deoxyribose.
  • RNA is generally single-stranded, instead of double-stranded.
  • RNA contains uracil in place of thymine.
purpose of rna
Purpose of RNA

Is the following sentence true or false?

  • RNA is like a disposable copy of a DNA segment.
  • True
slide4
What is the importance of the cell’s ability to copy a single DNA sequence into RNA?
  • It makes it possible for a single gene to produce large numbers of RNA molecules.
types of rna
Types of RNA

What is the one job in which most RNA molecules are involved?

  • Most are involved inprotein synthesis.
types of rna1
Types of RNA
  • Complete the compare-and-contrast table about the types of RNA.
type function
Type Function
  • Carries copies of the instructions for assembling amino acids from DNA to the rest of the cell.
  • Ribosomal RNA is a part of ribosomes.
  • Transfer RNA Transfers each amino acid to the ribosome to help assembleproteins
transcription
Transcription

Circle the letter of each sentence that is true about transcription.

  • b. RNA polymerase uses one strand of DNA as a template to assemble nucleotides intoa strand of RNA.
  • c. RNA polymerase binds only to DNA promoters, which have specific base sequences.
rna editing
RNA Editing
  • Many RNA molecules from eukaryotic genes have sections, called _____, edited out of them before they become functional. The remaining pieces, called, _________are spliced together.
  • Introns
  • Exons
rna editing1
RNA Editing

Is the following sentence true or false?

  • RNA editing occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell.
  • False
rna editing2
RNA Editing

What are two explanations for why some RNA molecules are cut and spliced?

  • It makes it possible for a single gene to produce several different forms of RNA.
  • It may play a role in evolution, making it possible for small changes in DNA to have dramaticeffects in gene expression.
the genetic code
The Genetic Code

Proteins are made by joining ________into long chains called polypeptides.

  • Amino acids
the genetic code1
The Genetic Code
  • How can only four bases in RNA carry instructions for 20 different amino acids?
  • The genetic code is read three letters at a time, so that each “word” of the coded message is three bases long.
the genetic code2
The Genetic Code

What is a codon?

  • It consists of three consecutive nucleotides that specify a single amino acid that is to be added to a polypeptide.
the genetic code3
The Genetic Code

Circle the letter of the number of possible three-base codons.

  • 4
  • 12

c. 64

d. 128

the genetic code4
The Genetic Code

Is the following sentence true or false?

  • All amino acids are specified by only one codon.
  • False
the genetic code5
The Genetic Code

Circle the letter of the codon that serves as the “start” codon for protein synthesis.

a.UGA

b.UAA

c.UAG

d. AUG

translation
Translation

What occurs during the process of translation?

  • The cell uses information from messenger RNA to produce proteins.
where does translation take place
Where does translation take place?
  • Translation takes place on the ribosomes.
circle the letter of each sentence that is true about translation
Circle the letter of each sentence that is true about translation.
  • Before translation occurs, messenger RNA is transcribed from DNA in the nucleus.
  • It is the job of transfer RNA to bring the proper amino acid into the ribosome to be attached to the growing peptide chain.
  • When the ribosome reaches a stop codon, it releases the newly formed polypeptide and the mRNA molecule.
what is an anticodon
What is an anticodon?
  • The three bases on a tRNA molecule that are complementary to one of the mRNA codons.
the roles of rna and dna
The Roles of RNA and DNA

Match the roles with the molecules.

Roles

  • Master plan - DNA
  • Goes to the ribosomes in the cytoplasm - RNA
  • Blueprint – RNA
  • Remains in the nucleus - DNA
genes and proteins
Genes and Proteins
  • Many proteins are_____, which catalyze and regulate chemical reactions.
  • Enzymes
is the following sentence true or false
Is the following sentence true or false?

Genes are the keys to almost everything that living cells do.

false

translation four major steps
Translation Four Major Steps
  • A. Messenger RNA is transcribed in the nucleus then enters the cytoplasm and attaches to an ribosome.
  • B. Transfer RNA translation begins at AUG, the start codon. Each anti-codon of tRNA complements a codon of mRNA and binds a specific amino acid.
translation four major steps cont
Translation Four Major Steps cont.
  • C. The polypeptide “assembly line” as the codons bind amino acids the ribosome joins them together forming long chains of amino acids.
  • D. Completing the Polypeptide the process continues until one of three stop codons is reached.
