story of Nietorp the incredible protein

Storyboard Text

  • amino acid
  • Protein synthesis is a two step process where the genetic mRNA is decoded in order to create amino acids/ the building blocks of DNA
  • amino acid
  • CGU
  • the mRNA is read in sets of codons (groups of three) by the ribosomes tocreate proteins and then depending on the anti codons (letters that pair with the codons) a certain amino acid is created for the DNA. this is known as translation
  • UAC AGG CAG AUC GAU AGG CAU GAC CAG UAU
  • AGC
  • once the anti codons are figured out, they are then translated to be certain amino acids. then the proteins are created. below are some examples
  • CGU
  • AGC
  • Serenine
  • Argenine
  • However, at this point there was an error in the translating sequence and the wrong protein was created. This eventually led to the disease
  • However, Pelizaeus Merzbacher disease is only one disease that can be caused by a protein error. others include type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's, and also Parkinson's
  • DNA is a very interesting thing, and there's lots more to go over about but anyways, i hope you learned something from this episode on "Nietorp the Protein".
