2 Similarities between DNA & RNA They are both nucleic acids They both have: a 5-carbon sugar, a phosphate group, a nitrogenous base.
3 Comparing RNA and DNA There are three important differences between RNA and DNA: RNA DNA SUGAR Ribose Deoxyribose STRANDS Single Double BASE Adenine Uracil Guanine Cytosine Adenine Thymine Guanine Cytosine These chemical differences make it easy for the enzymes in the cell to tell DNA and RNA apart.
4 Comparing RNA and DNA (Do not write) The roles played by DNA and RNA are similar to the master plans and blueprints used by builders. A master plan has all the information needed to construct a building. Builders never bring a valuable master plan to the building site, where it might be damaged or lost. Instead, they prepare inexpensive, disposable copies of the master plan called blueprints. Similarly, the cell uses DNA master plan to prepare RNA blueprints. The DNA molecule stays safely in the cell s nucleus, while RNA molecules go to the protein-building sites in the cytoplasm the ribosomes.
5 Functions of RNA The three main types of RNA are: messenger RNA, ribosomal RNA, and transfer RNA.
6 Messenger RNA messenger RNA (mrna): They carry information from DNA to other parts of the cell.
7 Ribosomal RNA RNA found in ribosomes that help assemble proteins.
8 Transfer RNA carries each amino acid to the ribosome and matches them to the coded mrna message.
9 Transcription Most of the work of making RNA takes place during transcription. During transcription, DNA serve as templates to produce complementary RNA molecules. VHPQM GY EAo Search for video using DNA Transcription and Protein Assembly (by gaylan guevara)
10 Transcription Transcription requires an enzyme, known as RNA polymerase, that is similar to DNA polymerase. RNA polymerase binds to DNA during transcription and attaches the complementary base pairs. A=U, T=A, C=G, G=C
11 Promoters RNA polymerase binds only to promoters. Promoters are: regions of DNA that have specific base sequences signals in the DNA molecule that show RNA polymerase exactly where to begin making RNA.
12 RNA Editing RNA molecules sometimes require bits and pieces to be cut out of them before they can go into action. Introns: the portions of premrna that are cut out and discarded. In eukaryotes, introns are taken out of pre-mrna molecules while they are still in the nucleus. exons: the remaining pieces of mrna that are spliced back together to form the final mrna. olio.htm Animation video
13 RNA Editing Biologists don t have a complete answer as to why cells use energy to make a large RNA molecule and then throw parts of that molecule away. Some pre-mrna molecules may be cut and spliced in different ways in different tissues, making it possible for a single gene to produce several different forms of RNA.
14 Lesson Overview 13.2 Ribosomes and Protein Synthesis
15 The Genetic Code The first step in decoding genetic messages is to transcribe DNA to RNA. This transcribed information contains a code for making proteins.
16 The Genetic Code Proteins are made by joining amino acids together into long chains, called polypeptides. As many as 20 different amino acids are commonly found in polypeptides.
17 The Genetic Code RNA contains four different bases: adenine, cytosine, guanine, and uracil. These bases form a language, or genetic code, with just four letters : A, C, G, and U.
18 The Genetic Code Each three-letter word in mrna is known as a codon. A codon consists of three consecutive bases that specify a single amino acid to be added to the polypeptide chain.
19 How to Read Codons Because there are four different bases in RNA, there are 64 possible three-base codons (4 4 4 = 64) in the genetic code. This circular table shows the amino acid to which each of the 64 codons corresponds. To read a codon, start at the middle of the circle and move outward.
20 How to Read Codons Most amino acids can be specified by more than one codon. For example, six different codons UUA, UUG, CUU, CUC, CUA, and CUG specify leucine. But only one codon UGG specifies the amino acid tryptophan.
21 Start and Stop Codons The genetic code has punctuation marks. The methionine codon AUG serves as the initiation, or start, codon for protein synthesis. Following the start codon, mrna is read, three bases at a time, until it reaches one of three different stop codons, which end translation.
25 Translation The decoding of an mrna message into a protein is a process known as translation.
26 Steps in Translation Translation begins when a ribosome attaches to an mrna molecule in the cytoplasm. As the ribosome reads each codon of mrna, it directs trna to bring the specified amino acid into the ribosome. One at a time, the ribosome then attaches each amino acid to the growing chain.
27 Steps in Translation Each trna molecule carries just one kind of amino acid. In addition, each trna molecule has three unpaired bases, collectively called the anticodon which is complementary to one mrna codon. The trna molecule for methionine has the anticodon UAC, which pairs with the methionine codon, AUG.
28 Steps in Translation The polypeptide chain continues to grow until the ribosome reaches a stop codon on the mrna molecule. When the ribosome reaches a stop codon, it releases both the newly formed polypeptide and the mrna molecule, completing the process of translation.

29 The Roles of trna and rrna in Translation Ribosomes are composed of roughly 80 proteins and three or four different rrna molecules. These rrna molecules a. hold ribosomal proteins in place b. locate the beginning of the mrna message. c. carry out the chemical reaction that joins amino acids together.
30 The Molecular Basis of Heredity What is the central dogma of molecular biology? The central dogma of molecular biology is that information is transferred from DNA to RNA to protein.
32 The Molecular Basis of Heredity Gene expression is the way in which DNA, RNA, and proteins are involved in putting genetic information into action in living cells. Despite their enormous diversity in form and function, living organisms display remarkable unity at life s most basic level, the molecular biology of the gene.
33 Lesson Overview 13.3 Mutations
34 Types of Mutations Cells sometimes make mistakes in copying their own DNA, inserting the wrong base or even skipping a base as a strand is put together. These variations are called mutations, from the Latin word mutare, meaning to change. Mutations are heritable changes in genetic information.
35 Types of Mutations All mutations fall into two basic categories: Gene Mutations: which produce changes in a single gene. Chromosomal Mutations: which produce changes in whole chromosomes. gene mutations chromosomal mutations
36 Gene Mutations point mutations- a type of gene mutations that occurs at a single point in the DNA sequence. They generally occur during replication. If a gene in one cell is altered, the alteration can be passed on to every cell that develops from the original one. Point mutations include substitutions, insertions, and deletions.
37 Substitutions A type of point mutation in which one base is changed to a different base. Substitutions usually affect no more than a single amino acid, and sometimes they have no effect at all. In this example, the base cytosine is replaced by the base thymine, resulting in a change in the mrna codon from CGU (arginine) to CAU (histidine). However, a change in the last base of the codon, from CGU to CGA for example, would still specify the amino acid arginine.
38 Insertions and Deletions These are point mutations in which one base is inserted or removed from the DNA sequence. Insertions and deletions are also called frameshift mutations because they shift the reading frame of the genetic message. Frameshift mutations can change every amino acid that follows the point of the mutation and can alter a protein so much that it is unable to perform its normal functions.
39 Point Mutation Video
40 Chromosomal Mutations Chromosomal mutations involve changes in the number or structure of chromosomes. These mutations can change the location of genes on chromosomes and can even change the number of copies of some genes. There are four types of chromosomal mutations: deletion, duplication, inversion, and translocation.
41 Chromosomal Mutations Deletion involves the loss of all or part of a chromosome.
42 Chromosomal Mutations Duplication produces an extra copy of all or part of a chromosome.
43 Chromosomal Mutations Inversion reverses the direction of parts of a chromosome.
44 Chromosomal Mutations Translocation occurs when part of one chromosome breaks off and attaches to another. Chromosomal mutation video GIED4Yo
45 Effects of Mutations Genetic material can be altered by natural events or by artificial means. Some mutations that affect individual organisms can also affect a species or even an entire ecosystem. Stressful environmental conditions may cause some bacteria to increase mutation rates. This can actually be helpful to the organism, since mutations may sometimes give such bacteria new traits, such as the ability to consume a new food source or to resist a poison in the environment.
46 Mutagens Mutagens chemical or physical agents in the environment that cause mutations. Chemical mutagens include certain pesticides, a few natural plant alkaloids, tobacco smoke, and environmental pollutants. Physical mutagens include some forms of electromagnetic radiation, such as X-rays and ultraviolet light. Causes of mutations video ch?v=0wrnxcgkcws
47 Harmful Effects Some of the most harmful mutations are those that dramatically change protein structure or gene activity. The defective proteins produced by these mutations can disrupt normal biological activities, and result in genetic disorders. Some cancers, ex. are the product of mutations that cause the uncontrolled growth of cells.
50 Harmful Effects Sickle cell- a disorder associated with changes in the shape of RBC. Normal RBC are round. Sickle cells are long and pointed. Sickle cell is caused by a point mutation. Among the symptoms of the disease are anemia, severe pain, frequent infections, and stunted growth.
51 Beneficial Effects For example, Insects being able to resist chemical pesticides. Microorganisms adapting to adapt to new chemicals in the environment.
52 Beneficial Effects Plant and animal breeders often make use of good mutations. Ex. when a complete set of chromosomes fails to separate during meiosis, the gametes that result may produce triploid (3N) or tetraploid (4N) organisms. The condition in which an organism has extra sets of chromosomes is called polyploidy.
53 Beneficial Effects Polyploid plants are often larger and stronger than diploid plants. Important crop plants including bananas and limes have been produced this way. Polyploidy also occurs naturally in citrus plants, often through spontaneous mutations.
