SparkNotes: SAT Subject Test: Biology: Protein Synthesis

Many of the identifiedcis-acting elements for translational regulation occur within the 3' UTR, andsome occur with regularity within certain protein function classes (a review by).

Now that we’ve described DNA and RNA, it’s time to take a look at the process of protein synthesis

Lila M. Gierasch was awarded the Ralph F. Hirschmann Award in Peptide Chemistry for her seminal contributions to peptide structure and function, peptide models for protein folding and function, and roles of peptide and protein aggregation in disease.


Some topics have two tests so try both

Lynmarie Thompson, chemistry and M2M, was awarded a two year, $615,000 NIH grant entitled, "Assembly and Function of Bacterial Chemotaxis Receptor Signaling Complexes.” The goal of this project is to assemble native-like functional nanoarrays of chemotaxis receptor complexes and determine how the proteins change their structure and dynamics during signaling. Understanding signaling in this system may be useful for the development of novel antibiotics targeting similar signaling systems that are widespread in bacteria.

It is observedas a dominant mutation on one allele (or deletion of it) resulting inloss-of-function in a diploid cell because of the insufficient amount of thewild-type protein encoded by the normal allele on the other haplotype (see also).

It contains usually one fertilized ovum (embryo) and endosperm (orperisperm) which is the nutritive cell surrounding the embryo.
