Storyboard Text

  • I have a test over jean expression.
  • Dang that does sound tough but I can help you.
  • Why are you so frantic?
  • Gene expression is basically using a gene to synthesize a product. 
  • hmm this isn't what I meant.
  • In your case the products are proteins, but more specifically mRNA and tRNA
  • First, you start out with a strand of DNA which is then copied to RNA with a process called transcription.
  • The only differenece between DNA and mRNA is the bases. DNA is T,C,A,and G. While RNA is U,A,C,and G.
  • This whole transcription process takes place in the nucleus. 
  • Also, this creates mRNA which we'll talk about later.
  • The next step is translation. In translation parts of mRNA are translated to amino acids. (Each 3 bases ex. UAG)
  • The 3 sets of bases (ex. UAG) in mRNA are called codons
  • Also transcription takes place in the cytoplasm.
  • There almost called cod(ons) because they help code for amino acids.
  • tRNA carries amino acids to the ribosome, where they will become proteins.
  • tRNA segments are called anticodons. Codons / Anticodons are just different names for the 3 bases. 
  • Another important component in translation is tRNA.
  • rRNA works with the amino acids to turn them into protein chains (also called polypeptides)
  • And finally the whole process is done! In short transcription is DNA to RNA and translation is RNA to proteins.
  • After tRNA carries the amino acids to the ribosome, rRNA takes over.
  • That's nice and all but I was talking about jeans.
