2.2A Protein Synthes

2.2A protein synthesis transcription

codon a sequence of three mRNA nucleotides; these are read as a unit and code for a specific amino acid
DNA sequence (genetic code) (genetic code) refers to the arrangement of the four nitrogenous bases (A, T, C, and G) in a DNA double helix
initiation first step of the translation process, when a ribosome assembles at the AUG start codon on mRNA
mRNA formed by transcription; carries DNA's message from the nucleus to the cytoplasm
promoter specific DNA region where RNA polymerase begins opening up the double helix
RNA polymerase enzyme involved in transcription
termination end of translation of a polypeptide, when the ribosome reaches a stop codon; a release factor frees the polypeptide chain, and the ribosome disassembles
transcription the process by which a segment of DNA acts as a template for the formation of an RNA molecule (mRNA, tRNA, or rRNA)
