New FA Biochem 3

QuestionAnswer
Names of the steps in protein synthesis 1. Initiation 2. Elongation 3. Termination
Sequence of events in the initiation step of protein synthesis. 1. Initiation factors assemble the 40S ribosomal subunit with the initiator tRNA 2. mRNA and (60S?) ribosomal subunit combine with the 40S subunit. 3. Initiation factors are released.
Sequence of events in the elongation step of protein synthesis. 1. Aminoacyl tRNA binds to the A site 2. Peptidyltransferase catalyzes peptide bond formation 3. Peptidyltransferase transfers growing polypeptide to aa in A site 4. Ribosome advances 3 nucleotides toward 3' end of RNA moving peptidyl RNA to P site
Sequence of events in the termination step of protein synthesis. 1. Completed protein is released from ribosome. 2. Ribosome dissociates.
Role of ATP in protein synthesis ATP does tRNA Activation (charging)
Role of GTP in protein synthesis GTP does tRNA Going places (aka translocation) and Gripping
Role of A site in protein synthesis A site holds incoming Aminoacyl tRNA.
Role of P site in protein synthesis P site accomodates growing Peptide.
Role of E site in protein synthesis E site holds Empty tRNA as it Exits
