Transcription is the process by which DNA is copied (transcribed) to mRNA, which carries the information needed for protein synthesis. First, pre-messenger RNA is formed, with the involvement of RNA polymerase enzymes. The process relies on Watson-Crick base pairing, and the resultant single strand of RNA is the reverse-complement of the original DNA sequence. The pre-messenger RNA is then "edited" to produce the desired mRNA molecule in a process called RNA splicing.
DNA Replication DNA replication is when DNA splits and it is used as a template to create a new strand of DNA.
Protein Synthesis Protein synthesis is the creation of a protein with a DNA template.
Translation Each codon is read and matched by an anticodon on the tRNA and then the tRNA leaves an amino acid and the amino acids are then connected by a peptide bond. The 4 bases of RNA includes adenine (A) guanine (G). Cytosine (C) and thymine (T)
We will write about the different types of codons, and types of RNA such as tRNA, mRNA and rRNA. We will write about how the protein is made. Amino acids and peptide bonds.
