5 True/False questions
What is translation? → The process of converting information in a sequence of nitrogenous bases in mRNA into a sequence of amino acids in proteins
RNA transcription is similar to what process in DNA? → DNA replication
Chart out RNA (nucleic acid) → RNA - single chain structure - contains ribose sugar - bases are adenine, cytosine, guanine and uracil - RNA is found in the nucleus and cytoplasm - there are three different types of RNA - messenger RNA (mRNA); ribosomal RNA (rRNA); and transfer RNA (tRNA)
What are the three stop codons? → 1) Messanger RNA - mRNA
2) Transfer RNA - tRNA
3) Ribosomal RNA - rRNA
How does transfer RNA help in translation? → By bringing 20 different amino acids dissolved in the cytoplasm to the ribosomes
