Experiment: Isolated and purified Griffith's transforming principle
Discovery: DNA is the transforming principle
Experiment: Used model building behind the picture from Franklin's lab
Discovery: 3-dimensional structure of DNA
List all the ways DNA differs from RNA
1. DNA is single stranded
2. Uses uracil instead of thymine
3. Has a ribose sugar
What is the central dogma?
Flowing in one direction from DNA --> RNA --> Proteins (aka replication->transcription->translation)
What happens in protein synthesis?
Protein synthesis is two parts-translation in the cytoplasm, transcription in the nucleus
What enzymes are involved in replication? What do they do?
The enzyme helicase unzips the hydrogen bond and polymerase attaches nitrogen bases
What enzymes are involved in protein synthesis? What do they do?
