ABO Sequence

  • 0:01 - 0:03
    So the big question at this point is, how
  • 0:03 - 0:07
    is this DNA code like a recipe? And how
  • 0:07 - 0:11
    is it turned into protein, actually, technically? So this
  • 0:11 - 0:14
    is a picture of a typical human cell, and
  • 0:14 - 0:16
    almost all of the DNA can be found inside
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    the nucleus, here you can see represented by the
  • 0:19 - 0:22
    chromosomes. But out here in the cytoplasm of the
  • 0:22 - 0:26
    cell. We see these black dots which are representing
  • 0:26 - 0:29
    ribosomes, and ribosomes are the machines that will
  • 0:29 - 0:34
    build proteins. So if ribosomes are the molecular machines
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    that will build proteins from amino acids and
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    they're located out here in the cytoplasm and the
  • 0:39 - 0:42
    information that we need to make the protein
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    is actually here in the nucleus. How do you
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    think the cells going to solve this problem of
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    having the informations segregated away from the machinery needed
  • 0:51 - 0:55
    to actually build proteins. This is a real physical problem
  • 0:55 - 0:58
    that has to be overcome. Now some of you may already
  • 0:58 - 1:01
    know the answer to this question, but if you don't, I
  • 1:01 - 1:03
    really want you to think about how you might solve this
  • 1:03 - 1:06
    problem if you were at cell. The information's in the
  • 1:06 - 1:11
    nucleus, the machinery to build the proteins in the cytoplasm. How
  • 1:11 - 1:13
    are we going to solve this problem? So don't worry about getting
  • 1:13 - 1:17
    this right or wrong, per se. Just think of a plausible
  • 1:17 - 1:20
    way that you might solve this problem, or a way that you think
  • 1:20 - 1:22
    a cell could solve it. And enter it into the text box here.
