Flashcards in Class 7, 8: Molecular Genetics I & II Deck (13):
1

protein

biological molecule composed of strings of amino acids

2

DNA

molecule of inheritance

3

proteins largley determine what organism is like such as

structural, stroage, transport, hormonal, receptor, contractile, dfensive, enzyamtic

4

genome

entire collection of genetic material in a cell of individual

5

genes

segments of DNA

6

nucleotides of DNA composed of three componenets, what are they

phosphate group, deoxyribose, one of four nitrogenous bases

7

nitrogeus bases

thymine, adenine, cytosine, guanine

8

deoxyribose

5 carbon sugar

9

transcritption

DNA to RNA

10

translation

RNA to protein

11

DNA is first transcribed into mRNA

then translated into amino acids

12

anticodons

complementary to the mRNA

13

tRNA molecules

bring correct amino acid to growing polypeptide chain during translation
