Transcription—A molecular view

By: HWC, Views: 2255

Transcription, as related to genomics, is the process of making an RNA copy of a gene's DNA sequence. This copy, called messenger RNA (mRNA), carries the gene's protein information encoded in DNA. During transcription, a DNA molecule is copied into RNA molecules that are then used to translate...

Transcription - Introns and exons

By: HWC, Views: 3795

In most eukaryotic genes, coding regions (exons) are interrupted by noncoding regions (introns). Exon - RNA sequences in the primary transcript that are found in the mRNA. Intron - RNA sequences between exons that are removed by splicing. During transcription, the entire gene is copied ...

ribosome

The trp operon in E. coli contains five structural genes corresponding to enzymes that convert chorismate into tryptophan. The trpE gene contains a 5' untranslated region that plays an important role in the regulatory mechanism called attenuation. The 5' UTR contains four regions. Region 1 en...

Female Pelvis Animation

This animation shows how an mRNA transcript can be used to make a cDNA strand.

Power Supply Polyacrylamide Gel Protein Sample

By: HWC, Views: 6063

SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a powerful tool, which resolves proteins according to their molecular weights. Because proteins differ in size, shape, and charge, a protein sample is first denatured with the anionic detergent SDS. When the sample is heated, the SDS molecules bind to ...

Introduction to Genetics

By: Administrator, Views: 9540

Genetics is a branch of biology concerned with the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in organisms. Gregor Mendel, a scientist and Augustinian friar, discovered genetics in the late 19th-century. Mendel studied "trait inheritance", patterns in the way traits are handed down from p...

Interview with an Anorexic Woman (Part 1 of 2)

By: Administrator, Views: 9888

Anorexia is a psychological disorder that affects an individual’s relationship with food and causes an unrealistic view of one’s body image. It affects both men and women of all ages but is more prevalent in women, with 0.3 – 1.0% of all women being affected. The age of onset tends to be mi...
