Proteins carry out all the functions in your body. Different sequences of proteins result in differences in eye color, height, hair etc. . Messenger protein leaves nucleus to give the message to Ribosome which is either in RER or floating in cytoplasm, the dna stays in nucleus because it can become lost. . DNA- MRNA proteins is some time called central dogma of life DNA RNA= transcription MRNA- Proteins = translation Every three nucleotides in the MRNA translates to one amino acid. . How many nucleotides are in DNA? 4 This means we can make 16 combinations with 2 nucleotide sequences 3 nucleotide sequence= 64 amino acids We only have 20 amino acids so that leaves us with extra ones Template is a single strand of dna Enzyme that performs transcription is called polymerase Translation- translate mrna into language of proteins More than one Codon codes for one amino acid—different codon codes can result in the same amino acid Codon= triplet of three bases in MRNA Transcription occurs in the Nucleus because the DNA does not leave the Nucleus
