What is the driving force of chain growth/elongation in RNA synthesis? And explain how.
Describe how RNA differs from DNA in structure and function. List the three types of-RNA involved in protein synthesis and describe the function of each.
What causes the tRNA molecule to form stem-loops?
Name three post transcriptional modifications that are made to a RNA transcript in eukaryotes.
Construct a table listing the three types of RNA and for each write a paragraph describing its function and whether it deals with the process of transcription or translation.
In Eukaryotes, what are the 3 modifications between the initial transcription of a premRNA and the time it leaves the nucleus. What are they?
During "RNA processing"A. all of the exons are removed and discardedB. the RNA molecule is made from a DNA templateC. introns are cut from the RNA and the exons are spliced togetherD. the RNA molecule is translated into a protein molecule
For RNA transcription, define what determines where it begins, when it begins, and where it ends.
What is common between miRNA and siRNA?
What is meant by A, P and E in the ribosome?
Briefly explain the differences among messenger RNA, transfer RNA and ribosomal RNA in terms of the roles they play in transcription and translation and where they are found in the cell.
What are the differences and the similarities between transposable elements that utilize an RNA intermediate and those that do not? Be sure to cover structural, functional, and behavioral differences.
Describe the three stages of transcription: initiation, elongation, and termination.
