AQA A Level Biology复习笔记4.1.7 Non-Coding DNA

Non-Coding DNA

 

  • The genome within eukaryotic cells contains many non-coding sections of DNA
    • Non-coding DNA does not code for any amino acids

     

  • Non-coding DNA can be found between genes, as non-coding multiple repeats
    • This means they contain the same base sequences repeated multiple times

     

  • Non-coding DNA can also be found within genes, as introns
    • The coding exons can be separated by one or more introns

     

  • During transcription, eukaryotic cells transcribe the whole gene (all introns and exons) to produce pre-mRNA molecules
  • Before the pre-mRNA exits the nucleus the non-coding sections (introns) are removed and the coding sections (exons) are joined together in a process called splicing

 

Post-transcriptional-modification-of-RNA

The RNA molecule produced from the transcription of a gene contains introns that must be removed before translation can occur.
