Unformatted text preview: 3. Contrast the steps of transcription and information flow to that of prokaryotes. 4. Indicate the critical points where the flow is controlled and kept specific in eukaryotes. 5. Compare the differences in protein synthesis in prokaryotes and eukaryotes and the effect off splicing on protein diversity. 6. Describe the role of RNA polymerase II, transcription factors, transcription activators, and enhancer sequences in transcription in eukaryotes 7. Describe the process of capping, splicing and poly-adenylation of eukaryotic mRNAs. 8. Describe the relationship between introns and the coding region for a typical eukaryotic gene. 9. Describe the functions of RNA polymerases I, II and III. 10. Contrast regulation by p53 and MalT....
