Protein Synthesis: to ______ proteins 3 Protein Synthesis Cartoon 2 Purple Petunia http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3210/02.html Purple Petunia Follow Up Questions 1. What did the scientist want to do to the petunia? Why? 2. What happened to the petunia? Why? 3. What analogy is used for DNA? 4. What analogy is used for mRNA? 5. What analogy is used for the ribosome? 6. What does RNAi stand for? 7. What disease is being studied using RNAi? 8. What analogy is used for a virus 9. What other disease might RNAi help to cure? DNA vs. RNA How are DNA & RNA different? 7 Tools • DNA • RNA o tRNA o rRNA o mRNA o RNAi • Amino Acids: building blocks of proteins (come from your food) • Enzymes Steps of Protein Synthesis 4 Protein Synthesis Animation 1. Transcription: DNA is used to make mRNA 2. Translation: mRNA is used as the code for amino acid sequence (protein) Transcription 4 &7 Happens in the nucleus 1. Helicase unzips the DNA 2. RNA polyermase reads the DNA from 3' to 5' 3. RNA polymerase makes a mRNA (messenger RNA) in the 5' to 3' direction (A, U, C, G) 4. mRNA leaves the nucleus through nuclear pore Transcription 5 Translation 4 Happens in the ribosomes within in the cytoplasm 1. mRNA enters the rRNA and is matched with a tRNA 2. tRNA transfers the correct amino acid 3. after all the mRNA has tranferred throught the ribosome Translation 6 Amino Acid Chart 8 &9 Codon codes for a specific amino acid (20 total) Big Picture 1 Protein Synthesis Animation Bibliography 1.
