1 DNA Replication What is it? When is it done? What is copied?
2 Two New, Identical DNA Strands Result from Replication
3 PROTEIN SYNTHESIS
4 Protein Synthesis After replication and cell division, each new cell has its own DNA Now, how do those cells use that DNA to make proteins? How do you go from DNA (nucleic acid) to protein (amino acid)?
5 Overview of Protein Synthesis Copy (mRNA) is made of gene mRNA sent out of nucleus Ribosomes use mRNA as instructions to make a protein
6 Protein Synthesis Two phases: DNA Two phases: DNA Transcription Transcription mRNA mRNA Translation Translationprotein
8 Transcription In nucleus In nucleus DNA the template for mRNA DNA the template for mRNA RNA polymerase makes the mRNA RNA polymerase makes the mRNA
9 Only one DNA strand is used Just a portion of the DNA is copied (one gene) copy is called mRNA
10 RNA Differs from DNA DNARNA Deoxyribose sugar Ribose sugar Double strandedSingle stranded T (thymine)U (uracil)
11 Question: What would be the complementary RNA strand for the following DNA sequence? What would be the complementary RNA strand for the following DNA sequence? DNA 5-GCGTATG-3
12 Answer: DNA 5-GCGTATG-3DNA 5-GCGTATG-3 RNA 3-CGCAUAC-5RNA 3-CGCAUAC-5
13 Translation mRNA protein
14 Translation ribosome Ribosome reads the mRNA and makes protein mRNA
15 mRNA leaves nucleus ribosome attaches to mRNA ribosome reads the bases in groups of 3 (codon) AUGCUG codon
16 The ribosome uses the code to make the protein How? How do you go from nucleic acid to amino acid?
17 tRNA Carries amino acids to ribosomeCarries amino acids to ribosome Has anticodons that are complementary to mRNA codonsHas anticodons that are complementary to mRNA codons UAC Amino acid
18 AUGCUG UAC A
21 Genetic Code DNA contains a triplet code DNA contains a triplet code Every three bases on DNA stands for ONE amino acid Every three bases on DNA stands for ONE amino acid Codon: Each group of 3 bases on mRNA Codon: Each group of 3 bases on mRNA
