Unformatted text preview: 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 1. Transcription RNA Synthesis...
