Transcription and Translation Tool


Transcription and Translation Tool Converts DNA to RNA to protein.

DNA sequence:

RNA sequence:
Protein sequence:
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)

  • a permanent copy of genetic information.
  • uses “T” instead of “U”
  • no 2′ OH group
  • more stable than RNA
  • lower error frequency during replication than RNA
RNA (ribonucleic acid)

  • messenger RNA (mRNA) is a temporary copy of the gene sequence in which protein is encoded.

  • consists of amino acids linked by aminoester (“peptide”) bonds.
  • most enzymes and many structural components of cells are made of proteins.
