Nucleic Acid set 2

Nucleic Acid Module set 2

DNA replication is semiconservative
DNA double helix denatures (strands separate),Each strand serves as the template for the synthesis of new second strand,and DNA polymerase adds complementary nucleotides in DNA replication
The nucleotide comes in as a triphosphate
bidirectional from a single origin of replication is the pattern of DNA synthesis in procaryotes
portion of the genome that contains an origin and is replicated as a unit replicon
bidirectional and multiple origins of replication is the pattern of DNA synthesis in eukaryotes
some small circular genomes (e.g., viruses and plasmids)replicated by rolling-circle mechanism
unzips the DNA helix helicase
synthesizes an RNA primer primase
adds bases to the new DNA chain; proofreading the chain for mistakes DNA polymerase III
removes primer, closes gaps, and repairs mismatches DNA polymerase I
supercoiling gyrase
uses each strand as template and synthesizes complementary strands DNA polymerase III
joins fragments to form complete strands of DNA ligase
the manner in which genetic instructions for polypeptide synthesis are stored within genome genetic code
sequence of base pairs in DNA corresponds to the amino acid sequence of polypeptide encoded colinearity
genetic code word and specifies an amino acid codon
codon meanings deciphered by Marshall Nirenberg
up to six different codons can code for a single amino acid code degeneracy
the 61 codons that specify amino acids sense codons
the three codons used as translation termination signals (UGA,UAG, UAA)and they do not encode amino acids stop codons

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
