B. Two Processes in protein synthesis Information contained within DNA (genes) used to produce traits in individual  (through enzymes or other proteins) Transfer of information stored in DNA to these proteins occurs through two  separate processes: 1. Transcription DNA used as a template or blueprint to make RNA 2. Translation RNA serves as template for sequence of amino acids in  synthesis of proteins Now: the role of those 3 types of RNA - Recall: three classes of RNA: Messenger RNA Transfer RNA Ribosomal RNA Each type of RNA has a role in synthesis of proteins Synthesis of Proteins from DNA Transcription Translation DNA                 RNA                 Protein Two steps from information in DNA (genes) to proteins 1. Transcription – DNA template used to synthesize RNA 2. Translation – 3 classes of RNA interact to lead to synthesis of polypeptide chains   3 dimensional proteins Transcribe information in DNA to RNA Same language (sequence of bases) Different carriers RNA

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
