Unformatted text preview: RNA has uracil instead of thymine Phenyldenine (Protein) o Information in DNA o Chromosomes contain: Protein Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) • How is the code “read” i.e. a protein synthesized? o Messenger RNA Formed along one side of DNA • Ribose is a different sugar than deoxyribose • RNA has Uracil for Thymine (A-U vs. A-T) • RNA single-stranded M-RNA moves to cytoplasm DNA rejoins: transcription completed o Transfer RNA (can be used over and over again) Begin translation One type of t-RNA for each amino acid Each t-RNA molecule has a triplet anticodon on one end and an amino acid attachment site on the other o Ribosomal RNA Makes up ribosomes “Reads” message and attaches appropriate amino acid to growing chain...
