What acts as the template for protein synthesis?
The stand of mRNA which is attached on small ribosomal unit act as tamplet for protein synthesis
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.
What is directly formed from this template of DNAserves as the template to initiate protein synthesis?
Using RNA as a template for protein synthesis instead of translating proteins directly from the DNA is advantageous fro the cell because?
What is the name given to viruses that are single stranded RNA that acts as a template for DNA synthesis?
What is the name of the process in which the directions for protein synthesis are given to mRNA by DNA?
When DNA strands are separated by the enzyme helicase, one of the two strands become the template i.e. free nucleotides from the cytoplasm forming the mRNA runs along this strand and reads the triplet codes by complementary base pairing. The resulting triplet codons of the mRNA, then goes to determine the anticodons and hence amino acid sequencing. Therefore the DNA is responsible for imparting the information for the amino acids to be formed and their…
Protein synthesis begins with transcription. RNA is coded to create a protein using a single strand of DNA as a template. This strand of RNA now becomes mRNA (messenger RNA) and is composed of introns and exons. The introns are the non-coding segments and will be spliced out. The mRNA will venture out of the nucleus and into the ribosome, where protein synthesis occurs. tRNA (transfer RNA) then bind onto the mRNA to begin a…
