Transcription and Translation 5pt bonus: genome of H1N1, symptoms, prevention, treatment, 50-100 words by friday RNA Structure* - Three different types which differ from each other in function* -messenger RNA -ribosomal RNA -transfer RNA -anytime RNA is synthesized, DNA is the template and the transcripts are made from only one RNA polymerase in bacteria, there are 3 RNA polymerase in eukaryotes Rules for polymerization of Nucleic Acids* Gene Structure* Gene: -the basic unit of genetic info -also defined as the nucleic acid sequence that codes for a polypeptide, tRNA or rRNA -linear sequence of nucleotides with a fixed start point and end point -codons are found in mRNA and code for single amino acids Reading frame -reading does not start on a particular codon -what are the diff combos you can make for the amino acids, 6 potential polypeptides with a double stranded DNA Importance of reading frame Genes that Code for Proteins Figure 11.23 Promoter is located at the start of the gene Chromosomal Organization in Bacteria and Viruse -both strands carry genetic info, gene 1 can be on the top strand and gene 2 can be on the bottom strand, no overlapping -in general there is no overlapping, except in 5.74 ?????? Tomoisomerases - Type 1: makes a nick in a single strand to relieve negative supercoiling - Type 2: make double stranded nicks to remove entanglement, during elongation, type 2 (gyrase) relieves supercoiling, topo4 is involved in resolving the duplicated strands to separate them DNA polymerase 3 -Tau(T) and gamma(y) -y is shorter, needed for loading the beta clamp, 4 nucleotides at the end code for one a.a. -T is full length -ribosomal shift E. coli has 5 DNA polymerases and polymerase 3 plays the major role in  replication, assisted by polymerase 1. DNA polymerse 3 holoenzyme is a  complex of  10 proteins  including two core enzymes, each composed of three

protein subunits. The core enzymes are responsible for catalyzing DNA synthesis  and proofreading the product to ensure fidelity of replication. A dimer of another  subunit (tau) connects the two core enzymes. Associated with each core enzyme  is a subunit called the beta sliding clamp. This protein tethers the core enzyme to  one strand of the DNA molecule. Another complex of proteins, the gamma (y)
