... 2.22 Protein Synthesis
The process of protein synthesis isn't as simple as stringing together amino acids to form a
polypeptide. As shown below, this is a fairly involved process. DNA contains the genetic code
that is used as a template to create mRNA in a process known as transcription. The mRNA th ...

... regulates translation at the synapse via shuttling from polysome translation complexes to
non-translating granules in response to activation of cellular signaling pathways. Wells
will discuss progress on the functional consequences of inhibiting the function of the
mRNA-binding protein CPEB in neuro ...
... The concerted application of the methods of X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy, combined with biochemical
and various biophysical methods have provided a totally
new understanding of the mechanisms which control the
machinery of protein synthesis. The progress has been enormous, although ...
... A Protein Fairytale
Once upon a time there were two fraternal twin brothers, Donald N
Armstrong and Ronald N. Armstrong. Donald was the smarter of the
two and he was a successful inventor with many patents. Although
Ronald was not as smart at his brother, he was extremely loyal. One
day Donald came ...

... Bacteriocins are small antimicrobial peptides produced by bacteria, and have great potential in the food
industry as an alternative to antibiotics. The two-component bacteriocins, produced by various strains
of lactic acid bacteria, display optimal activity when complexed together. A bacteriocin, Cb ...

... A life event, sufficient in meaning to command attention, invokes a change within the
brain. Neurons dedicated to the acquisition of memory are recruited (the brain has enormous
reserves of cells for this purpose) and they undergo a transformation. The arrangement of their

... Protein synthesis is one of the most important processes in an organism. As you’ve learned, it creates proteins needed
for an organism to function. It is also a multi-step process that some students find difficult to remember. You, however,
are going to have no problem mastering it! To simplify the ...
... Memory- learning that has persisted over time; it has been acquired, stored, and can be retrieved
In order to remember something it must be:
● Encoded- perceived by the brain
● Stored- retained in the brain for a long period of time
● Retrieved- come back out of storage and into conscious thought
... • Neuron to neuron communications are made possible
• At the synapse, neurotransmitters are released in
response to excitation of the presynaptic neuron,
which then diffuses across the synaptic cleft,
binding to receptors on the postsynaptic cell.
