Pre-mRNA-Before DNA transfers to RNA in cytoplasm Changes that occur: **SEE PICTURE! Exons splice together Introns leave 5’ cap and Poly-A-Tail attach to ends of polypeptide Now it’s ready to leave the nucleus!! Good genes make good proteins Bad genes make bad proteins or no proteins Mutations-a change in a strand of DNA **SEE PICTURE! Base substitution- wrong base was accidentally substituted/copied for the right base. Missense mutation-different amino acids are made (which results in an entirely different protein formed Nonsense mutation- the codon copied is a “stop” codon (UGA, UAG, UAA) and leads to an early end in the “message” Frameshift mutation-nucleotide wasn’t even put into a position so the codons shift

Unformatted text preview: to fill the empty position (which makes different amino acids…which becomes a different protein) Mutations can be good, but they are mostly bad. DNA regulation/control: **SEE PICTURE! Structural genes: Found in bacteria Manufacture enzymes to create vitamins Repressor protein: Attaches to promoter to shut down function when enzyme is not present to be manufactured Inducer: Changes the shape of the repressor Inactivates the anticodon Repressor gene: Turns the structural gene on and off **E site, P site, and A site????...

    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.
