BILD10: The DNA Double Helix 1/15/2008 DNA is like a set of instructions to help produce a finished product. DNA -> RNA -> Proteins. The written description of a finished product; information through a process that is translated into an object that does something = DNA. 4.2 Proteins. – Proteins are made from a long chain of amino acids, to make some object/protein. The digestion of proteins (i.e. the steak), proteins the body makes break down the proteins ingested. Other proteins thus break down ingested proteins into amino acids. Anything we smell because we have smaller molecules that can detect these molecules. Eat and smell receptors are very similar. Whatever is being eaten of smelt depends on these receptors. Neurons sense and interpret the world around us. Neurons are packed densely into our brain. On an axon on a neuron are actually very long. Proteins These have structural roles (I.E. Actin is a structural protein it gives cells their shape.). A cells skeleton is dynamic; whenever it changes it can
