    because the DNA holds the amino acid codes for all the possible proteins a cell can make. So the role of the nucleus is to produce a copy of the DNA which is found in the nucleus to produce mRNA. Once the mRNA has been produced and left the nucleus it then catches onto the ribosomes on the rough endoplasmic reticulum in the cytoplasm. This is where the information from the DNA that was copied in the nucleus to produce the mRNA is read (translated). The Ribosomes on the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) are responsible for reading the mRNA in order to produce the insulin needed. Ribosomes are made up of rRNA (ribosomal RNA) and protein. The mRNA will then connects to the small subunit of rRNA which enables six bases at one time to be exposed to the large subunit of rRNA. Now tRNA (transfer RNA) molecules bond with three bases at time called codons, each three bases has different amino acid codes. The mRNA moves which will show three more bases on the ribosome ready for the next tRNA molecule to bond with another three codons to reveal another amino acid to join the other amino acids on the polypeptide chain. A polypeptide chain is a chain of specific amino acids and a polypeptide chain will grow until the ribosome exposes a stop codon. Once the third tRNA molecule has joined the first tRNA disconnects. This is translation and the proteins that are then made in the rough endoplasmic reticulum by translation get wrapped into vesicles and the RER (rough endoplasmic reticulum)…

    Eukaryotic cells will bind with the ribosomes at the position of the recently added 5’G cap, and will then scan through the non-translated region mRNA molecule until it reaches the AUG start codon, where translation will occur. This is dissimilar to prokaryotic ribosomes, where the position of binding is at point known as the Shine-Dalgarno sequence, approximately 8 bases towards the 5’ direction of the mRNA strand of the start codon, delivering the ribosome to the exact position of the AUG…

    They are made within the nucleolus from 60% RNA and 40% protein, and consist of two subunits, one large and one small. When produced, the subunits stay separate to exit through the nuclear pores: it is only because of their miniscule size that they can fit through. Many ribosomes then bind themselves to the RER, although some stay free in the cytoplasm. Free and bound ribosomes both create polypeptide chains, which are used to make proteins. To create a polypeptide chain the large and small…

    The article, “Does the Ribosome Challenge our Understanding of the RNA World?,” by Anthony Poole was published in the Journal of Molecular Evolution. RNA world hypothesis is a model framework explaining the origin of life on earth like genetically translated proteins and deoxynucleic acid from the point of view of ribonucleic acid based hypothetical systems. It suggests that ribonucleic acid existed before the deoxynucleic acid molecule. Chemical and Darwin’s evolutionary theories attempt to…

    RRNA is the key component of ribosomes, which are account for translation. The role of Hira and H3.3 on rRNA transcription prompts me to investigate whether global translational process is compromised. The defects on handful ribosomal protein (Rpl9 and Rpl10A) indirectly support this idea. However, only a detailed measurement of translation genome-widely will provide and reveal what are the key players that are required for developmental competence and which of these are shortage in Hira…

    inner membrane known as cristae that increases its surface area to volume ratio, allowing more chemical reactions to occur speeding up production. A little fun fact, Mitochondrion also have their own DNA and ribosome’s floating in the matrix. A truly vital organelle.” “Isn’t that amazing? We better hurry up now or otherwise we might miss the concentration gradient on the way out” replied Yasmin, pressing down on the accelerator, speeding towards the centre of the cell, to the nucleus “WOOHOO!”…

    elongating ribosomes, and thus contributes to reduced CHOP proteins in non-stressed conditions (Young et al., 2016). However, CHOP proteins under stressed conditions, are synthesized by the ribosomal bypass model. In the bypass model, the scanning ribosomes ignore the initiation codons of CHOP1 uORF in part because of the poor Kozak of its initiation codons; instead, the ribosomes recognize the downstream initiation codon of CHOP CDS and direct translation of the CHOP CDS (Palam et al., 2011).…

    According to this theory the mitochondria would have once been an aerobic bacteria that has been engulfed by a larger cell, but wasn’t destroyed as a mutually beneficial relationship was formed. It is widely accepted that some if not all modern eukaryotic cells originated in this form. This theory also explains why the mitochondria contains its own ribosomes (Bolsover, S., Hyams, J., Jones, S., Shephard, E. and White, H. 1997) and circular genome very similar to that of a bacterial genome…

    Ryan Schoen Mrs. Lily Gu Protein Project - function October 20, 2014 Lysyl-tRNA Synthetase Lysyl-tRNA Synthetase has a couple known names, one of them being aminocyl tRNA. The major role of this protein is translation during protein synthesis. For a protein to be classified and placed into an amino acid group, its amino acid sequence must be properly translated. Transfer RNA helps translate the protein which helps with genetics. Aminoacyl tRNA synthetases are the enzymes that are responsible…
