DNA & RNA Blue print of life

Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid DNA, that controls the production of proteins within the cell
Proteins Used with enzymes, building blocks for the body , that code for a ribosome (like a recipe is used for baking a cake) a link of amino acids
Gene segment of DNA that codes for a particular protein
Amino Acid building block of proteins, that code for ribosomes, using 3 base pairs
Replication process of coping DNA, always conserving one strand
Ribose Nucleic Acid Used instead of Deoxyribose, in mRNA
Messenger RNA chemical used to read DNA in the nucleus, and is permeable through the pores.
Hydrogen Bonds two sides of the DNA ladder that are bonded gently
Purines adenine, guanine
Base Pair Rule rule that states how bases always pair in a certain pattern
Nitrogen Bases made up of purines and pyrimidines, rungs of the ladder (4 types)
Nucleotide combination of single base, a deoxyribose sugar, and phosphate
Uracil mRNA uses this instead of Thymine
Phosphate makes up the backbone of DNA, 1 of 3 parts of the nucleotide
Double Helix twisted ladder, made up of alternating sugar and phosphates molecules
Chromosomes microscopic, threadlike strands composed of chemical DNA, composed of genes
Pyrimidines thymine, cytosine
Nucleus "control center" for cell reproduction, and heredity
Deoxyribose the 5 carbon sugar
codon 3 base pairs that code for ribosomes (amino acids)
semi conservative coping a new starnd of DNA, the process "saves" or conserves one of the strands, when it is ready to copy
Blueprint of LIfe tells the builders how to build an organism

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.
