Transcript

  • 1. Transcription and Translation Transcribe: to copy using the same “DNA language” of nitrogen bases (ATCG or AUCG) Translate: to take from the “DNA language” of bases to a different language – “amino acid language” which is made of codons.
  • 2. Protein Structure
    • Made up of amino acids
    • Polypeptide - string of amino acids
    • 20 amino acids are arranged in different orders to make a variety of proteins
    • Assembled on a ribosome
  • 3. Questions to be answered today
    • How do we get from the bases found in DNA to amino acids?
    • How do we get from a bunch of amino acids to proteins?
  • 4. Which codons code for which amino acids?
    • Genetic code - the inventory (list) of linkages between nucleotide triplets and the amino acids they code for in any organism
    • A gene is a segment of DNA that transcribes a segment of RNA
    • A codon is a series of three RNA bases that makes a specific amino acid.
  • 5. Replication - review
    • DNA double helix unwinds
    • DNA now single-stranded
    • New DNA strand forms using complementary base pairing (A-T, C-G)
    • Used to prepare DNA for cell division
    • Whole genome copied/replicated
    DNA
  • 6. Transcription and Translation: An Overview (aka the Central Dogma) Transcription Translation DNA RNA Protein
  • 7. RNA vs. DNA
    • DNA
    • Double stranded
    • Deoxyribose sugar
    • Bases: C,G A,T
    • RNA
    • Single stranded
    • Ribose sugar
    • Bases: C,G,A,U
    Both contain a sugar, phosphate, and base.
  • 8. Transcription-DNA to RNA same language
    • RNA forms base pairs with DNA
      • C-G
      • A-U (no T in RNA)
    • Primary transcript - length of RNA that results from the process of transcription
  • 9. TRANSCRIPTION ACG ATA CCC TGA CGA GCG UGC UAU GGG ACU Now complete the last two transcriptions. DNA strand RNA strand
  • 10. Major players in transcription
    • mRNA - type of RNA that encodes information for the making of proteins and carries it to a ribosome from the nucleus
    • “ messenger” RNA
  • 11. Major players in transcription
    • RNA polymerase - complex of enzymes with 2 functions :
      • Unwind DNA sequence
      • Produce primary transcript (definition on slide 7) by stringing together the chain of RNA nucleotides
  • 12. mRNA Processing
    • Primary transcript is not mature mRNA
    • DNA sequence has coding regions ( exons ) and non-coding regions ( introns )
    • Introns must be removed before primary transcript is mRNA and can leave nucleus
  • 13. Making mature mRNA
  • 14. Transcription is done…what now?
    • Now we have mature mRNA transcribed from the cell’s DNA.
      • It is leaving the nucleus through a nuclear pore.
      • Once in the cytoplasm, it finds a ribosome so that translation can begin.
    • We know how mRNA is made, but how do we “read” the code?
  • 15. Translation- RNA to protein, different languages
    • Second stage of protein production
    • mRNA is on a ribosome
  • 16. Ribosomes
    • 2 subunits, separate in cytoplasm until they join to begin translation
      • Large
      • Small
    • Contain 3 binding sites
      • E
      • P
      • A
  • 17. Translation
    • Second stage of protein production
    • mRNA is on a ribosome
    • tRNA brings amino acids to the ribosome (transfer RNA)
  • 18. tRNA
    • Transfer RNA
    • Bound to one amino acid on one end
    • Anticodon on the other end complements (matches) mRNA codon (set of three bases in a row)
  • 19. tRNA Function
    • Amino acids must be in the correct order for the protein to function correctly
    • tRNA lines up amino acids using mRNA code
  • 20. Types of RNA
  • 21. Reading the DNA code
    • Every 3 DNA bases pairs with 3 mRNA bases
    • Every group of 3 mRNA bases encodes a single amino acid
    • Codon - coding triplet of mRNA bases
  • 22.  
  • 23. Special codons
    • There is one codon that always starts the process – AUG
      • codes for amino acid called Methionine (MET)
    • There are three codons that stop the process – UAA, UAG, UGA
  • 24. The Genetic Code-each triplet is the code for an amino acid. A string of amino acids makes a protein.
  • 25. Transcription vs. Translation Review
    • Transcription
    • Process by which genetic information encoded in DNA is copied onto messenger RNA
    • Occurs in the nucleus
    • DNA mRNA
    • Translation
    • Process by which information encoded in mRNA is used to assemble a protein at a ribosome
    • Occurs on a Ribosome
    • mRNA protein
