Mechanism and regulation of eukaryotic protein synthesis.

The promoter contains specific DNA sequences that are recognized by proteins known as transcription factors. These factors bind to the promoter sequences, recruiting RNA polymerase, the enzyme that synthesizes the RNA from the coding region of the gene.

Completes the synthesis of Proteins.

The 5’ UTRs of most mRNAs contain a consensus sequence of5’-CCAGCCAUG-3’ involved in the initiation of protein synthesis.

Eukaryotes do not have a simple protein that corresponds to the factor in prokaryotes. Rather, there is a set of proteins that together performthe same function as the factor, and these are the"general transcription factors" ("GTFs"). We havealready looked at structures of transcription factors when we discussedDNA-protein interaction in a previous lecture. Otherwise, the general mechanismsof transcription initiation are similar.

In eukaryotic cells, DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) synthesis occurs at specific sites that move through the genome called replication forks. Multiprotein complexes at these forks catalyse the synthesis of two new strands of DNA using parental strands as templates to produce two complete copies of the parental DNA. The eukaryotic replication fork machinery must deal with the chromatin and chromosome structure of eukaryotic genomes, be able to replicate DNA in the context of a complex cell cycle, and be able to deal with the constant threat of mutations that could arise due to replication of damaged DNA, all while trying to efficiently replicate the DNA with high fidelity. The resulting eukaryotic replication fork is a tightly controlled, yet incredibly efficient biological machine capable of synthesizing billions of base pairs of DNA in the span of hours.

The most studied RNA polymerase is that from , so we will studyit as the prototype of the RNA polymerases. The holoenzyme is a 449 kD proteincomposed of a "core enzyme" and a "-subunit",and the entire complex is denoted (core) Thecore enzyme directs the polymerization reaction, and it has 4 subunits: core enzyme = 'he inorganic ions Zn2+ (two of them in the 'subunit) and Mg2+ are required for catalytic activity and thethree-dimensional structure of the enzyme resembles a hand. The thumb of thehand can be envsioned as grasping a piece of B DNA that lies in a channelrepresented by the curved fingers and palm of the hand. This channel iscylindrical, with dimensions on the order of 25 A by 55 A. These dimensionsallow a fit of about 16 base pairs of B DNA.
