QUESTIONS LIST: double helix: a pair of parallel helices intertwined aboucomt a mon axis,especially that in the structure of the dna molecule, anticodon: a sequence of three nucleotides in a region of transfer rna that recognizes a complementary coding triplet of nucleotides in messenger rna during translation by the ribosomes in protein biosynthesis, dna polymerase: any of a class of enzymes involved in the synthesis of deoxyribonucleic acid from its deoxyribonucleoside triphosphate precursors, rna polymerase: an enzyme that synthesizes the formation of rna from a dna template during transcription, central dogma: molecular biology describes the two-step process, transcription and translation,by which the information in genes flows into proteins, translation: the process follows transcription in which the dna sequence is copied (or transcribed) into an mrna, rna: any of a class of single-stranded molecules transcribed from dna in the cell nucleus or in the mitochondrion or chloroplast, messenger: the form of rna in which genetic information transcribed from dna as a sequence of bases is transferred to a ribosome, mutation: occurs when a dna gene is damaged or changed in such a way as to alter the genetic message carried by that gene, replication: the process by which double-stranded dna makes copies of itself, each strand, as it separates, synthesizing a complementary strand, transcription: the first step of gene expression, in which a particular segment of dna is copied into rna, nucleotide: a compound consisting of a nucleoside linked to a phosphate group. nucleotides form the basic structural unit of nucleic acids such as dna, ribosomal: a type of rna, distinguished by its length and abundance, functioning in protein synthesis as a component of ribosomes, codon: a triplet of adjacent nucleotides in the messenger rna chain that codes for a specific amino acid in the synthesis of a protein molecule.
