Unformatted text preview: Gene Structure and Transcription Terminology Genome entire genetic material of an individual Transcriptome set of transcribed sequences Proteome set of proteins encoded by the genome Only one strand of DNA serves as a template for transcription. Different genes are transcribed from different strands From Gene to Protein Prokaryotic Gene Structure Promoter CDS Terminator transcription Genomic DNA mRNA protein UTR UTR translation Eukaryotic Gene Structure 5 - Promoter Exon1 Intron1 Exon2 Terminator 3 UTR splice splice UTR transcription translation Poly A protein Gene: a segment of DNA containing the information for a single polypeptide chain or functional RNA (i.e. rRNA, tRNA, etc.) Basic Gene Structure transcription 5 ACAUAUGUGAAUGA 3 RNA Transcribed region Regulatory elements 5 ACATATGTGAATGC 3 3 TGTATACACTTACT 5 Promoter Terminator DNA Gene +1 Downstream (+n) Upstream (-n) RNAP The site at which RNA polymerase begins transcription is numbered +1. - Downstream: direction in which a template DNA strand is transcribed - Upstream: denotes the opposite direction - Nucleotide positions in the DNA sequence downstream are indicated by (+) and those upstream (-). Which DNA strand is the template strand? Gene Structure: Polycistronic vs monocistronic Cistron : an old name for a gene Polycistronic : 1 promoter directs synthesis of 1 mRNA that can be translated to more than one polypeptide Prokaryotic genes Monocistronic : 1 promoter directs synthesis of 1 mRNA that usually translates to only 1 protein Eukaryotic genes Transcription...
