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.
