Unformatted text preview: Biol141 Foundations in Modern Biology Cellular Biology and Genetics Lecture 6 Wednesday, September 6 th , 2011 Review of nucleotides, and nucleic acids. Reading: Freeman, Emory 2 nd Ed. Chapter 4 (pages 59-66) DNA ! RNA ! PROTEIN 1. The Central Dogma describes the general flow of information required to build a protein 2 different forms of nucleic acids required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body's cells, tissues, and organs. Definition of a gene A section of DNA that encodes information for building one or more mRNA molecules with the regulatory sequences required for its transcription. The information contained in a gene is represented by the sequence of nitrogenous bases. An understanding of the structure of polymerized (poly means many a polymer is made of many monomers) nucleic acids, therefore is important in order to understand gene function. order to understand gene function....
