6 Debrief & Practice 2 2. What molecule is contained in the nucleus of a cell, and how does that molecule affect the production of proteins in a cell? _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

7 Debrief & Practice 2 Molecule A contains the:
(1) Starch necessary for ribosome synthesis in the cytoplasm (2) Organic substance that is broken down into molecules B, C and D (3) Proteins that form the ribosome in the cytoplasm (4) Directions for the synthesis of molecules B, C, and D

8 Debrief & Practice 3 3. The doctors told Theresa that she had a mutation in the BRCA1 gene. What is a mutation? What is the BRCA1 protein supposed to do? _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

9 Debrief & Practice 3 3. Describe the relationship between the three structures shown in the diagram to the right. __________________________
