FInal Project Pt 3.

Storyboard Text

  • There are 3 steps to replication of DNA let's start with unzipping. A special little tool called a helicase comes in and splits the DNA in half. Then there are two separate strands of DNA.
  • Unzipping
  • After Helicase finishes its job another tool is used called polymerase. It brings takes the DNA that is split in half and starts to form its other half by matching base pairs.
  • Rebonding
  • When the polymerase finishes the last tool named Ligase comes in and finishes the job. It zips back up the DNA to complete 2 new double helixes.
  • Zipping
  • What RNA is made of
  • RNA is a copy of DNA, and it comes in 3 different forms. The 3 forms are rRNA mRNA and tRNA. Each are vital to the process of making proteins (Amino Acids)
  • What is RNA
  • RNA is single stranded but also still helical which means it still spirals (Kind of looks like a twizzler). Also RNA is built similar to DNA but quite different.
  • Found one thumbtack in the back of my drawer
  • What RNA looks like
  • 2D model to show shape
  • RNA is made up of similar things to DNA but there are differences. Rather than a deoxyribose sugar RNA has a ribose sugar( Ribose just has one more oxygen). Also instead of Thymine it contains Uracil but bonding is still the same.
  • Phosphate
  • Purines
  • pyrimidine
  • Ribose
