Protein Synthesis -Translation and Regulation

RNA synthesis can be divided into three phases: initiation, elongation, and termination.

The best known and studied bacterial toxin is the diphtheria toxin,produced by . Diphtheria toxin is abacterialexotoxin of the A/B prototype. It is produced as single polypeptidechainwith a molecular weight of 60,000 daltons. The function of the proteinis distinguishable into two parts: subunit A, with a m.w. of 21,000daltons,contains the enzymatic activity for inhibition of elongation factor-2involvedin host protein synthesis; subunit B, with a m.w. of 39,000 daltons, isresponsible for binding to the membrane of a susceptible host cell. TheB subunit possesses a region T (translocation) domain which insertsinto the endosome membrane thus securing the release of the enzymaticcomponent into the cytoplasm.

The three codons, UAA known as ochre, UAG as amber and UGA as opal, that do not code for an amino acid but act as signals for the termination of protein synthesis.

Roles of Protein Synthesis Elongation Factor EF-Tu in …


Elongation
In the elongation stage of translation, amino acids are added one by one to the preceding amino acid.
Codon Recognition
The anticodon of an incoming aminoacl tRNA base-pairswith the complementary mRNA codon in the A site.
Peptide Bond Formation
An rRNA molecule of the large ribosomal subunit catalyzes the formation of a peptide bond between the new amino acid in the A site and the carboxyl end of the growing polypeptide in the P site.
Translocation
The ribosome translocates the tRNA in the A site to the P site.

Protein synthesis elongation ..

There are a variety of ways that toxin subunits may be synthesizedandarranged: A + B indicates that the toxin is synthesized andsecretedas two separate protein subunits that interact at the target cellsurface;A-Bor A-5B indicates that the A and B subunits are synthesizedseparately,but associated by noncovalent bonds during secretion and binding totheirtarget; 5B indicates that the binding domain of the protein iscomposedof 5 identical subunits. A/B denotes a toxin synthesized as asinglepolypeptide, divided into A and B domains that may be separated byproteolyticcleavage.

Messenger RNA It carries a genetic message from the DNA to the protein-synthesizing machinery of the cell.

Protein Synthesis: Transcription ..

The tRNA that recognizes the AUG start codon and the amino acid attached to it are also distinct from the Met-tRNAMet base-paired to internal AUG codons. This initiator tRNA contains the CAU anticodon necessary for recognition of the start codon, but several sequence and structural differences distinguish it from the elongator tRNA that inserts methionine into internal positions of the polypeptide. In bacteria, both elongator and initiator tRNAs are aminoacylatedby methionyl-tRNA synthetase, but the methionylated initiator tRNA undergoes further processing prior to its transport to the ribosome. The enzyme fMet-tRNA transformylase modifies the amino group of the tRNA-attached methionine residue, using N10-formyltetrahydrofolate as a formyl donor. One feature that the transformylase enzyme recognizes is a mismatched base pair at the first position of the initiator tRNA (tRNAfMet) acceptor stem. The elongator tRNA (tRNAMet) molecule has a canonical G:C base pair at the first position of the acceptor stem, while tRNAfMet contains a C:A pair. Base substitutions that produce a strong base pair at this position in tRNAfMet significantly decrease formylation of Met-tRNAfMet.

Teaching Protein Synthesis (Replication, Transcription, and Translation) is a challenge

Protein synthesis, or translation of mRNA into protein, ..

Ribonucleic Acid -- it has a ribose sugar and uses the same bases as DNA EXCEPT it replaces Uracil for Thymine.
RNA makes a copy of the DNA strand in order to transport the "code" out of the nucleus to the ribosome (site of protein synthesis).

This ensures that errors only occur about once per 100 000 amino acids.

The large subunit places pearls on the string
The role of the large subunit in the ribosome is primarily to synthesize new protein.
