Note from the author:
Protein Synthesis
1 pt
Write the sequence of RNA bases that would be transcribed from the sequence of bases below:
Use the space bar to separate your sequence into codons.
1 pt
Use the genetic code chart provided above to translate your sequence of RNA base codons into an amino acid sequence to make a protein. Copy the three letters representing each amino acid as shown on the chart. Separate each of your amino acids from the others with a space.
2 pts
Put the steps of transcription and translation in the order that they occur in.
  1. The Stop codon is reached and mRNA leaves the nucleus with the copied strand of DNA
  2. Codons on the mRNA pair up with anti-codons on the tRNA
  3. RNA nucleotides match their bases to the bases on the DNA strand
  4. Amino acids are added together with peptide bonds to make a polypeptide
  5. mRNA connects to the ribosome
  6. RNA Polymerase attaches to the DNA strand at the Start codon
3 pts

  • Double stranded
  • Single stranded
  • Ribose

  • Thymine
  • Uracil
  • One type
  • Two types
  • Found only in the nucleus
  • Found in the nucleus and cytoplasm
  • Adenine
  • Guanine
  • Cytosine
  • Made up of nucleotides
  • DNA
  • RNA
  • Both DNA & RNA
1 pt
Protein synthesis occurs in which order?
mRNA -> DNA -> Protein
Protein -> DNA -> mRNA

1 pt
The process of copying a gene's DNA sequence into a sequence of RNA is called:
polymerase chain reaction
1 pt
tRNA is involved in:
carrying amino acids to the ribosome
carrying RNA to the ribosome
carrying DNA to the ribosome
