Chapter 8 What did volkin and astrad do? -used pulse-chase experiment What are the properties of RNA? -single stranded -intramolecular base pairing -single stranded, more flexible than DNA What are the two general classes of RNA? mRNA, fRNA Role of mRNA Pass information from DNA to protein Role of functional RNA Serves many functional roles, and does not pass of information from DNA, final product What kind of base is Uracil? Pyrimidine What is function of tRNA? Responsible for bringing correct amino acid to the mRNA in the process of translation Function of rRNA? Major component of ribosomes, which are large macromolecule machines that guide the assembly of the amino acid chain In one gene how many DNA templates are used for transcription? 1, the other is referred to as the coding strand What positions the ribonucleotides? RNA polymerase Do the RNA strands all form in the same direction on the template? Yes
