During transcription the DNA double helix is separated into two individual strands. Each strand may serve as a template for RNA polymerase, which travels along the DNA structure in a 3' to 5' direction. As it progresses down the strand, RNA polymerase synthesizes a pre-messenger RNA strand that is complementary to the sequence on the DNA template. For example if the DNA sequence on the template was 5' ATACA 3', then the pre mRNA sequence synthesized would be 3' UAUGU 5'. (Remember, RNA synthesis utilizes the nucleotide uracil instead of thyamine).

The synthesis of an RNA molecule from a DNA template strand is?

transcription:"the first step in protein synthesis, a sequence of nucleotide bases becomes exposed in an unwound region of a DNA strand. That sequence acts as a template upon which a single strand of RNA - a transcript - is synthesized from free nucleotides."The synthesis of an RNA molecule from the DNA template strand is called transcription.

Mrna sequence 3' aacuaccga 5'determine the template DNA sequence?

The template sequence would be 5' TTGATGGCT 3'. You can find any DNA template sequence by finding the complementary base pair sequence for the mrna sequence. To do this, remember that A matches with U or T (U is used in the RNA strands wheras T is used in the DNA strands) and G matches with C (and vice versa). Next just flip the 5' and 3' ends because the complementary strands are always antiparallel to each other.

What is directly formed from this template of DNAserves as the template to initiate protein synthesis?

The intermediate molecule formed between DNA and protein is mRNA (messenger RNA). The process in which the DNA sequence is copied to an RNA sequence is called transcription. The process in which the mRNA template is read to produce protein is called translation (protein synthesis)

What strand of DNA would be produced from the template strand of DNA?

AAC CT would produce TTG GA The coding strand is the DNA strand that has the same base sequence as the RNA transcript. It contains codons, and the non-coding strand has anti-codons instead.

What is the DNA template?

DNA is double-stranded, but only one strand serves as a template for transcription at any given time. This template strand is called the noncoding strand. The nontemplate strand is referred to as the coding strand because its sequence will be the same as that of the new RNA molecule.
