  • Figure 30.17 Posttranscriptional modification of mRNA showing the 7-methylguanosine cap and poly-A tail.
  • FIGURE 26–21 Processing of pre-rRNAtranscripts in bacteria. 1 Before cleavage,the 30S RNA precursor is methylated atspecific bases. 2 Cleavage liberatesprecursors of rRNAs and tRNA(s). Cleavage atthe points labeled 1, 2, and 3 is carried outby the enzymes RNase III, RNase P, andRNase E, respectively. As discussed later in thetext, RNase P is a ribozyme. 3 The final 16S,23S, and 5S rRNA products result from theaction of a variety of specific nucleases. Theseven copies of the gene for pre-rRNA in theE. coli chromosome differ in the number,location, and identity of tRNAs included inthe primary transcript. Some copies of thegene have additional tRNA gene segmentsbetween the 16S and 23S rRNA segments andat the far 3 end of the primary transcript.
  • Figure 30.15 Posttranscriptional processing of eukaryotic ribosomal RNA by ribonucleases (RNases).
  • FIGURE 26–23 Processing of tRNAs in bacteria and eukaryotes. Theyeast tRNATyr (the tRNA specific for tyrosine binding; see Chapter 27)is used to illustrate the important steps. The nucleotide sequencesshown in yellow are removed from the primary transcript. The endsare processed first, the 5 end before the 3 end. CCA is then addedto the 3 end, a necessary step in processing eukaryotic tRNAs andthose bacterial tRNAs that lack this sequence in the primary transcript.While the ends are being processed, specific bases in the rest of thetranscript are modified (see Fig. 26–24). For the eukaryotic tRNAshown here, the final step is splicing of the 14-nucleotide intron. Intronsare found in some eukaryotic tRNAs but not in bacterial tRNAs.

  • Figure 30.19 Alternative splicing patterns in eukaryotic mRNA
  • FIGURE 26–20 Alternative processing of the calcitonin gene transcriptin rats. The primary transcript has two poly(A) sites; one predominatesin the brain, the other in the thyroid. In the brain, splicingeliminates the calcitonin exon (exon 4); in the thyroid, this exon is retained.The resulting peptides are processed further to yield the finalhormone products: calcitonin-gene-related peptide (CGRP) in thebrain and calcitonin in the thyroid.
