Compare n contrast prokaryotes and eukaryotes in terms of gene expression?
In prokaryotic gene expression, RNA is translated into protein almost as fast as it is transcribed; there is no nucleus therefore no separation of the transcription and translation processes. The presence of introns in a prokaryotic genome would interfere with protein function because there would be no time between transcription and translation to splice them out. In contrast, eukaryotic gene expression involves production of a primary TNA transcript from which the introns are introns are removed. There is sufficient time for this to...
Asked in Chemistry
Describe the locations reactants and products of transcription and translation?
Transcription is located in the nucleus, and translation is located in the cytoplasm. The product of transcription is RNA, and the product of translation is protein. The reactants for transcription is DNA, and the reactants for translation is mRNA and tRNA. ...
Asked in Genetics
Why is transcription and translation are important in protein synthesis?
Transcription and translation are important in protein synthesis because transcription and translation allow the synthesis of mRNA from a single DNA strand. This process allows for building or replication. ...
Where in the cell do transcription and translation takes place?
In eukaryotic cells, transcription occurs in the nucleus from which the transcript it transported to the cytoplasm where translation occurs. In prokaryotic cells, transcription and translation both take place in the cytoplasm. ...
