Realize that eukaryotes require the activity of telomerase to complete the synthesis of their linear chromosomes. The Semiconservative Nature of DNA Replication One property of the genetic material necessary for its function is the ability to replicate (reproduce) itself. After it was established that DNA is the genetic material, attention turned toward how DNA was replicating in living organisms. The Watson-Crick model of DNA structure (as outlined in the module on nucleic acids) suggested a possible mechanism for replication of DNA molecules. The nature of base pairing meant that if the two strands of a DNA molecule were separated, they could each serve as a template for the creation of a complementary strand by bringing in individual nucleotides to base pair with their complementary base on the template, and joining the new nucleotides together.
mRNA carries the genetic code (instructions how to assemble the protein) from the DNA in the nucleus to ribosomes in the cytoplasm. tRNA picks up and transfers amino acids from cytoplasm to the mRNA on the ribosomes and is shaped similar to a cloverleaf. rRNA forms a structural part of ribosome that helps join the amino acid... ... middle of paper ... ...RNA strand can then either be used again to create more proteins or be broken down into their separate nucleotides. Protein Synthesis is the process whereby DNA codes for the production of essential proteins. This process can be divided into two parts, transcription and translation.
Sequence and structural proteomics involve the large scale analysis of protein structure. Comparison among the sequence and structure of the protein enable the identification on the function of newly discovered genes (Proteoconsult, n.d.). It consists of two parallel goals which one of the goals is to determine three-dimensional structures of proteins. Determine the structure of the protein help to modeled many other structures by using computational techniques (Christendat et al., 2000). This approach is useful in phylogenetic distribution of folds and structural features of proteins (Christendat et al., 2000).
2) Similarities and differences of the family of Ubiquitin; Structure The ubiquitin family is large, but shares a few characteristics. Some of these characteristics includes; the ubiquitin folding and the biochemical mechanism they use to bind to the target protein. The ubiquitin structure was analyzed as part of a larger NMR study to understand new techniques including H/D exchange. This technique contributed mostly on the information of the protein folding.
Whereas, siRNAs come from long dsRNA precursors derived from a variety of single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) precursors, such as sense and antisense RNAs. siRNAs may also come from hairpin RNAs which is derived from inverted repeat regions. siRNAs may also arise enzymatically from non-coding RNA precursors. microRNA (miRNA) act in the cytoplasm and mediate mRNA degradation or the translational arrest. However, some of the plant miRNAs have been shown to act directly to promote DNA methylation.
The amino acids bind in sequence to the RNA molecule and in the process bind to each other. After formation along the RNA strand, the protein is and is then released. The sequence of amino acids in the protein determines its function, such as an enzyme, antibody, hormone, or structural molecule. Mutations in DNA can occur through several mechanisms. Nucleotides can be deleted from or added to the sequence, or they can be in the incorrect order.
Transcription and Translation follow DNA replication in the central dogma of life. This term, central dogma, refers to the process by which DNA forms RNA which further forms proteins. This begins with transcription which is the process of creating RNA from DNA. RNA is a nucleic acid similar to DNA, but it has three major differences. These differences are RNA is single stranded while DNA is double stranded, the backbone of RNA is made of ribose sugar instead of deoxyribose sugar, and RNA has uracil as one the bases in its nucleotide instead of thymine.
However, it should also be noted that these motifs can result in slightly different mechanism in different species, and that they can perform their function at certain domains of the protein. The understanding of protein sequence signatures has to be first introduced before assessing their functional significance.

Proteogenomics and Gene Annotation Introduction Proteogenomics is a kind of science field that includes proteomics and genomics. Proteomic consists of protein sequence information and genomic consists of genome sequence information. It is used to annotate whole genome and protein coding genes. Proteomic data provides genome analysis by showing genome annotation and using of peptides that is gained from expressed proteins and it can be used to correct coding regions.Identities of protein coding regions in terms of function and sequence is more important than nucleotide sequences because protein coding genes have more function in a cell than other nucleotide sequences. Genome annotation process includes all experimental and computational stages.These stages can be identification of a gene ,function and structure of a gene and coding region locations.To carry out these processes, ab initio gene prediction methods can be used to predict exon and splice sites.
