Unformatted text preview: 204-325 1 Summary of the Last Lecture Protein sequence is encoded by its gene. Gene products (enzymes) can work in specific order in a biochemical pathway. Single gene mutations account for many, but not all, genetic diseases in human. Genes also make proteins that are not enzymes. Mutations of these genes can also cause inheritable disorders. Genetic counseling involves genotype analysis, explaining consequence and presenting options 2 Today's Topics 1. Structure, Function and Synthesis of RNA 2. Transcription in Prokaryotes 3.

Transfer RNA (tRNA) brings amino acids to ribosomes during translation. Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) combines with proteins to form a ribosome, the catalyst for translation. Small nuclear RNA (snRNA) combines with proteins to form complexes used in eukaryotic RNA processing. MicroRNA (miRNA) regulates mRNA translation and stability in eukaryotes.

Transcription is regulated by promoter sequence and catalyzed by a single RNA polymerase in prokaryotes. In eukaryotes, transcription is regulated by promoter, enhancer, as well as internal control region and upstream activator sequence; and is catalyzed by three RNA polymerases. RNA can be modified by capping, poly A tailing, splicing, editing and base modification after transcription.
