Devlin, Editor (Wiley-Liss)Central Dogma of Molecular Biologyholds that DNA storesInformation that controls all cellular processes. Information cannotflow directly from DNA to protein, but depends on ribonucleic acid(RNA) to transport the information. Genetic Information is istransmitted from DNA to RNA bytranscription. The sequence of RNAis thentranslatedinto a protein sequence at the ribosome. Severaldiscoveries have begun to blur the distinct roles of each of thesebiomolecules; for example, it has been demonstrated that RNA can actas a catalyst in biochemical reactions (ribozymes) and as a templatefor DNA synthesis (reverse transcription)The key experiments demonstrating the role...
