The story of protein synthesis
Where is DNA located?
In the nucleus
Can it get out of the nucleus?
NO!
How does the DNA get the
information out?
mRNA
Takes info. to the ribosome
How is the mRNA made?
RNA polymerase adds
complementary bases to the
DNA
How is RNA different than DNA?
RNA= ribonucleic acid
sugar=ribose
one strand
nitrogen bases
-U,A,C,G
DNA=Deoxyribonucleic
acid
Sugar=deoxyribose
2 strands
Nitrogen bases
-A,G,C,T
What does the ribosome do?
Makes
proteins
What is a protein made out
of?
Amino Acids
What goes to get the amino
acids and bring them to the
ribosome?
tRNA
What kind of bonds form
between amino acids?
Peptide bonds
