4 Central Dogma of Biology – The flow of genetic information in biology και να θεραπεύω τους πάσχοντες κατά τη δύναμή μου και κατά την κρίση μου χωρίς ποτέ, εκουσίως, να τους … Kai na therapeuo tous pasxontes kata te dyname… I will prescribe treatment to the best of my ability…

5 Genome – complete set of genetic information in a cell Gene – sequence of DNA that codes for a gene product, usually a protein Replication – duplicates DNA prior to cell division Transcription – copies information in DNA into RNA Translation – interprets information carried by RNA to synthesize encoded protein Expression – process transmitting information from DNA to protein thru transcription and translation DNA molecule

9 DNA – D eoxyribo N ucleic A cid Covalent bond between 5’PO 4 and 3’OH → forms a sugar-phosphate backbone DNA forms a double helix Have directionality: defined from phosphate to hydroxyl DNA strands are: Anti-parallel - strands run in opposite directions Complementary - strands contain complementary bases which can base pair Base-pairing – DNA bases form weak hydrogen bonds with each other → C-G and A-T

11 DNA vs. RNA DNA Deoxyribonucleotides Thymine (T) Always a double helix (double-stranded) DNA – the genetic material of a cell RNA Ribonucleotides Uracil (U) Single-stranded! Folds into many shapes mRNA – messenger RNA: transcribed from genes and translated into protein tRNA – transfer RNA: role in protein synthesis rRNA – ribosomal RNA: an integral part of the ribosome
