Gene: region of DNA controlling a distinct hereditary character includes entire DNA sequence necessary for synthesis of functional gene product = protein or RNA (tRNA, rRNA, miRNA) coding region 3’ UTR UTR = untranslated region 5’ UTR poly A tail promoter regulatory elements Genes

Explanation of representation of receptor tyrosine kinase structure: example of EGF receptor tyrosine kinase domain cystein-rich domain Schematic representation of protein sequence (amino acids) and its position relative to the plasma membrane bilayer Black line: Sequences unique to EGF receptor Sequences constituting ‘motifs’ or ‘domains’ found in other proteins mRNA sequence 3’UTR ATG (Start) Cap 5’UTR transmembrane region Stop AAAAA polyA tail N-terminus (NH3+) C-terminus (COO-) Coding sequence (all exons) Unique sequences between ‘boxes’: probably originally sides of the ‘boxes’, but less functional constraints (function mostly as ‘linkers’ between important protein domains) -> rapid divergent evolution
