Typically, how many RNA-binding proteins can simultaneously bind to a single mRNA? Or said differently, how many "binding sites" does an mRNA have? What order of magnitude? I am interested in RNA ...
I am isolation RNA from Drosophila larvae brain with TRIzol method. What percentage of extracted RNA will be ribosomal RNA? I am only interested in mRNA, so I am trying to figure out whether I need to ...
I need to make RNA:DNA duplexes. I can make 100 to 200 ug of mRNA through in vitro transcription, and I know how to use reverse transcription to make a cDNA library, but I have questions with this. ...
What dissociates first - the last tRNA, mRNA and release factors or the subunits of ribosomes? I tried searching this from Lehninger but couldn't get a clean answer.
Lets say that the cell wants to make a particular protein. Transcription of the appropriate gene is done and the mRNA is made. mRNA attaches to the ribosome and the translation is initiated in a ...
Is there any reason why AUG is the initiation codon ? Why is there a need for an initiation codon ? Can't translation start with different codons?
