Here's a taster:

The genetic code
· A group of 3 bases codes for one amino acid. This is a base
· Only one strand of DNA codes for proteins = reference
· Gene ­ a length of DNA that codes of one polypeptide.

Here's a taster:

Protein Synthesis ­ Transcription ­pg 105
1. Hydrogen bonds between bases broken by DNA Helicase ­ DNA
2. Free nucleotides diffuse into position with exposed bases on
reference strand, using complemetary base pairing.
3. Condensation reactions catalysed by RNA polymerase creates
4. mRNA molecule breaks free from DNA and leaves the nucleus
through a nuclear pore. Arrives in the cytoplasm and moves to a
ribosome.…read more

Here's a taster:

Protein Synthesis ­ Translation ­ pg 106
· tRNA molecules are used ­ have a series of 3 bases called
an anti-codon
· In the cytoplasm, tRNA transferases load AAs onto specific
tRNA molecules, depending on their anti-codon.
1. In the ribosome, there is complementary base pairing
between codons and anti-codons.
2. Another tRNA molecule approaches and joins.
3. A condensation reaction forms a peptide bond between
the 2 AAs.
4. The mRNA moves, and the first tRNA leaves
5. Another amino acid is brought in.
6. A chain of AA's continues to be built up until a stop codon
is reached on the mRNA.…read more
