Biology Section 63: Mutations

Describe the roles of mRNA and tRNA in the synthesis of proteins – mRNA brings the code to the ribosome and the tRNA brings the AA to the ribosome by matching the anticodon to the codon on the mRNA
What is gene therapy? – The process of using genetic engineering to change a person's genes.
Grow & Develop – Living things grow
codon – a triplet of bases (on nucleotides) that forms the code for a particular amino acid on messenger RNA
r-species – animals which have many offspring and invest little care in raising them
endoplasmic reticulum – interconnected network of thin, folded membranes that produce, process,a nd distribute proteins…
exocytosis – process by which materials are released from a cell by fusing a vesicle with the plasma membrane
