What is the role of mRNA in protein synthesis? - …
This lesson takes a look at tRNA and its role in protein synthesis
This activity will help students understand the role of DNA, mRNA, tRNA, and amino acids in protein synthesis. This activity will also introduce the concept of mutations.
05/03/2013 · Describe the roles of DNA, mRNA, tRNA, ..
Compare and contrast the structure of mRNA and tRNA.
• Explain how and why the structure of specific mRNA is related to the structure of specific DNA, and the role of mRNA in protein synthesis.
• Begin to relate the structure of tRNA to its role in protein synthesis and explain how its structure enables it to carry out this role.
…because half of each of the original strands of DNA are present in each of the new strands.
…in order for the base pairs to connect according to base pairing rules, the nucleotides on the complementary chain have to be rotated through 180o.
…the mechanism of protein synthesis can only read a codon which is 3 bases long, it could not discriminate between codons which were 1, 2 or 3 bases long.
