Unformatted text preview: like rRNA or finally coding for a protein). The gene
includes, however, regions preceding and following the coding region (5' UTR and
3' UTR) as well as (in eukaryotes) intervening sequences (introns) between
individual coding segments (exons).” non-coding is introns and coding sequences are
exons and the introns are revmoed during RNA
processes But what we would really like to know is everything:
“The ultimate goal of sequence annotation is to arrive at a complete functional
description of all genes of an organism. However, function is an ill–defined
concept. Thus, the simplified idea of “one gene – one protein – one structure – one
function” cannot take into account proteins that have multiple functions
depending on context (e.g., subcellular location and the presence of
cofactors)….” (* see supplemental info) 5 BIO 1140 Unit 2-2: Transcription At the level of the genome, is the genome what we think it is?
Most of the genome in “higher eukaryotes” consists of
repeated sequences & mobile elements called tra...
