Protein synthesis

  1. 1. DNA and Genes• DNA contains genes, sequences of nucleotide bases• These genes code for polypeptides (proteins) 1
  2. 2. Protein Synthesis (Gene Expression)Proteins (Review)•Proteins make up all living materials
  3. 3. • Proteins are composed of amino acids – there are 20 different amino acids• Different proteins are made by combining these 20 amino acids in different combinations• Amino acid chains are called polypeptides.
  4. 4. • Proteins are manufactured (made) by the ribosomes
  5. 5. • Function of proteins:1.Help fight disease2.Build new body tissue3.Enzymes used for digestion and other chemical reactions are proteins (Enzymes speed up the rate of a reaction)4. Component of all cell membranes
  6. 6. Making a Protein—Transcription•First Step: Copying of genetic information from DNA to RNA calledTranscription Why? DNA has the genetic code for the protein that needsto be made, but proteins are made by the ribosomes—ribosomesare outside the nucleus in the cytoplasm. DNA is too large to leave the nucleus (double stranded), butRNA can leave the nucleus (single stranded).
  7. 7. The enzyme RNA polymerase binds to DNA and part ofDNA temporarily unzips and is used as a template toassemble complementary nucleotides into messengerRNA (mRNA). mRNA copies the template strand
  8. 8. • mRNA then goes through the pores of the nucleus with the DNA code and attaches to the ribosome.
  9. 9. Making a Protein—Translation•Second Step: Decoding of mRNA into aprotein/polypeptide chain is called Translation.•Transfer RNA (tRNA) carries amino acids from thecytoplasm to the ribosome.
  10. 10. These amino acids come from the food we eat. Proteinswe eat are broken down into individual amino acids andthen simply rearranged into new proteins according to theneeds and directions of our DNA.
  11. 11. • A series of three adjacent bases in an mRNA molecule codes for a specific amino acid—called a codon.• A triplet of nucleotides in tRNA Amino acid that is complementary to the codon in mRNA—called an anticodon.• Each tRNA codes for a different amino acid. Anticodon

  13. 13. • mRNA carrying the DNA instructions and tRNA carrying amino acids meet in the ribosomes.
  14. 14. • Amino acids are joined together to make a protein. Polypeptide = Protein
  15. 15. Ribosomes• Made of a large and small subunit• Composed of rRNA (40%) and proteins (60%)• Have two sites for tRNA attachment --- P and A copyright cmassengale 15
  16. 16. Step 1- Initiation• mRNA transcript start codon AUG attaches to the small ribosomal subunit• Small subunit attaches to large ribosomal subunit mRNA transcript copyright cmassengale 16

  18. 18. Step 2 - Elongation• As ribosome moves, two tRNA with their amino acids move into site A and P of the ribosome• Peptide bonds join the amino acids copyright cmassengale 18
