How is your Genetic Info turned into your unique proteins? Genetic Info is contained in a the DNA double helix of chromosomes located in the nucleus that is “transcribed” into mRNA. The mRNA is “translated” into protein in the cytosol after associating with ribosomes. RNA and DNA are made of 5 kinds of “nucleotide”. Each nucleotide is characterized by its unique nitrogenous “base”: 5 bases: A, T, C, G or U Who Gets What? ATGC DNA AUGC RNA DNA forms a double helix that holds your genetic information (“genes” are sections of DNA that code for specific proteins) DNA is converted to mRNA (transcription) mRNA is translated to protein (amino acids)
