Fall 2010 Major Points, Lecture 16 (Chapter 17 continued) 1. What process is required to make protein out of mRNA? 2. Where is the information coded to direct the assembly of polypeptides? 3. How is the information to assemble 20 amino acids coded by only four nucleotides? 4. Define "codon." 5. What are two important functional signals coded for by specific sequences? 6. What do we mean by a "degenerate code" for amino acids? 7. Explain how you would use a codon table (the genetic code) to find which amino acids are encoded by a particular mRNA sequence? 8. Translate the simple mRNA sequence 5'-AUGGAUCGGAUAUAG-3'. 5. What is a "reading frame?" 6. What happens if translation occurs in the wrong reading frame? 7. What basic molecular components are required for translation? 8. What molecule "interprets" the genetic code from mRNA during translation? 9. What structure on tRNA is responsible for codon recognition? 8. How is the secondary structure of tRNA maintained?
