Shaping tRNA
Priano, Christine
American Biology Teacher, v75 n9 p708-709 Nov-Dec 2013
This model-building activity provides a quick, visual, hands-on tool that allows students to examine more carefully the cloverleaf structure of a typical tRNA molecule. When used as a supplement to lessons that involve gene expression, this exercise reinforces several concepts in molecular genetics, including nucleotide base-pairing rules, the importance of molecular shape, the consequences of genetic mutation, and similarities and differences between DNA and RNA.
