  • From a GeneFrom a Geneto a Proteinto a ProteinTranscription andTranscription andTranslationTranslation
  • VocabularyVocabularyDNADNADeoxyribonucleic acid.Deoxyribonucleic acid.Double stranded helix madeDouble stranded helix madeup of A, T, C, and Gup of A, T, C, and Gnucleotides.nucleotides.RNARNARibonucleic acid. SingleRibonucleic acid. Singlestranded and made up of A,stranded and made up of A,U, C, and G nucleotidesU, C, and G nucleotidesmRNAmRNAMessenger RNAMessenger RNAtRNAtRNATransfer RNATransfer RNA
  • Central DogmaCentral Dogma
  • mRNA transcriptionmRNA transcription DNA code is the template that is transcribed into mRNA code. mRNA matches base pairs but uses U in place of T Transcription always moves in 5’ to 3’ direction adding onto 3’ end.
  • RNA PolymeraseRNA Polymerase Important enzyme in transcription Binds to unwound section of DNA Constructs RNA chains from the DNA template
