  • Transcription
    • 1.)Sequence of genes have to be copied and transported to protein synthesis
      • Shorter molecules of RNA produced
    • 2.) Gene unwinds
      • DNA helicase, a new codon starts
        • Hydrogen bonds between bases break
    • Two strands
      • Sense
        • '3-5' '5-3'
        • code for protein to be synthesised
      • Antisense
        • Complementary copy of sense.
    • 3.) RNA nucleotides pair with complementary base pairs.
      • Exposed on antisense
      • Phosphodiester bonds form between RNA nucleotides
        • RNA polymerase
      • Stops at end of the gene
        • mRNA
    • 4.) mRNA detaches from DNA and leaves nucleus through pores
      • Helix reforms
        • Travels to Ribosome
