QUICK REVIEW:
(Must know this prior knowledge before learning transcription and translation!)

Summarize the structure and function of proteins. (Chap. 2, Section 3)
Describe the function of ribosomes. (Chap. 3 Section 2)
Differentiate between DNA and genes. (Chap. 6, Section 1)
Describe the structure and function of DNA. (Chap. 9, Section 2)
State the base-pairing rules. (Chap. 9, Section 2)






Review: What is a Protein?



Traits are determined by PROTEINS that are built according to instructions coded in DNA.  Recall that proteins have many functions, including acting as enzymes and cell membrane channels.  Proteins, however, are not built directly from DNA.  RNA is also involved...

The instructions for building a protein are found in a gene and are "rewritten" to a molecule of RNA during transcription.  The RNA is then "deciphered" during translation.

(Codons in mRNA) Codons are three-nucleotide sequences on mRNA. Each codon corresponds to a specific amino acid or signifies a start or stop signal for translation.
