CHM 140

Ch 25

anticodon- 3 nucleic acid sequents on t-RNA which is specific for each amino acids to be added to the protein chain in protein synthesis
codon- 3 nucleic acid sequence on m-RNA which codes fro each amino acid.
gene- DNA segment that codes for 1 protein
exon- section of DNA that, when transcribed, codes for a protein or RNA
replication- reproduction of DNA molecule into 2 new DNA molecules
A nucleotide consists of what 3 parts? base, monosaccharide, phosphate
Name the 3 nucleotides that are derviative of pyrimidine. cytidine, uridine, thymidine
Name the 2 nucelotides that are derivatives of purine. Adenosine, Guanosine
In what nucleotide form is energy stored? ATP adenosine 5’-triphosphate
What is the secondary structure of DNA? Double helix: a type of 2° structure of DNA molecules in which two antiparallel polynucleotide strands are coiled in a right-handed manner about the same axis
What are the 3 differences between DNA and RNA? DNA bases are A, G, C, and T; the RNA bases are A, G, C, and U pairs in DNA G-C, A-T in RNA G-C, A-U sugar in DNA is 2-deoxy-D-ribose; in RNA it is D-ribose 3)DNA double stranded; RNA single-stranded
What are the 3 main types of RNA? What is the function of each? 1)m-RNA:directs amino acid sequence of proteins 2)t-RNA:transports amion acids to the site of protein synthesis 3)r-RNA:combines with proteins to form ribosomes
translation- Protein synthesis
Describe steps 1-4 in protein synthesis. 1. mRNA transcribed from DNA strand in nucleus goes ribsome, attaches 30S unit at P & A sites 2. Methionyl-tRNA binds to P site through a codon-anticodon interaction. 3.50S ribosomal unit attaches 30S unit. 4. Anticodon of 2nd tRNA binds w/next codon mRNA
Describe steps 5-8 in protein synthesis. 5. Amino acid in P site joined to amino acid on A site via peptide bond. 6. 1st tRNA leaves ribosome. 7. Ribosome moves along mRNA chain one codon unit. 8. Steps 4 through 6 are repeated until protein is synthesized.
Describe structure of nucleosome core of 8 histone molecules which the DNA helix is wrapped around

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.
