Biol 1202 Jan 21 How are genes and proteins related? - genes determine the primary, secondary, tertiary and quarternary structures of proteins - protein structure determines the way processes of life are carried out (enzymes and energy) (1) gene to RNA to protein     DNA to RNA is transcription (2) gene is a segment of DNA on a chromosome (3) DNA codes for a specific amino acid sequence in a protein or for RNA that helps make  proteins (4) all life forms use DNA as genetic material DNA vs RNA -RNA: single stranded, ribose is sugar    m, r, and t -DNA: double stranded, deoxyribose is sugar Transcription vs Translation -transcription converts DNA (A,T,C,G) to RNA (A,U,C,G) -translation converts RNA (A,U,C,G) to protein through amino acid sequences -How is information transcribed? From gene to RNA (1) unwound DNA; DNA polymerase moves along (2) termination produces single RNA strand

-How is RNA translated to a protein? amino acids (AUG is start codon) Genetic Code -codon: triplet of nucleotides that codes for one amino acid Translation (Protein Synthesis) -takes place in ribosome of rough ER -Requirements: amino acid tied to tRNA, small and large subunits, ATP -Steps: (1) initiation- small ribosome at anticodon for UAC and large subunit comes in; (2)  elongation- second tRNA to bind to next codon, catalytic site bonds; (3) termination- stop codon Mutations (change in the DNA sequence) -point: one base pair change, can be fixed on the appropriate strand 50% of the time and they change every codon past that point -Mutations in evolution: (1)raw material; (2)neutral or harmful Theory of evolution by natural selection (1) change in allele frequencies in a population over time (2) living species are descendants of ancestral species that were different form present day  ones
