 This
mechanism
has
two
steps:
transcrip:on
and
transla:on
 –  these
paired
processes
convert
the
informa:on
carried
on
DNA
 into
proteins
for
the
cell
 –  transcrip:on
is
copying
informa:on
from
one
medium
to
another
 using
the
same
language
or
alphabet
(DNA
to
RNA)
 –  transla:on
is
conver:ng
informa:on
from
one
language
to
 another
(RNA
to
protein)
 Transcrip:on:
copying
of
a
sequence
of
nucleo:de
bases
in
DNA
to
 messenger
RNA
(mRNA)
 –  unlike
DNA,
mRNA
can
leave
the
nucleus
and
carry
