From DNA to Protein

Lecture no. 8 from the course: Understanding Genetics: DNA, Genes, and Their Real-World Applications

From DNA to Protein

Taught by Professor David Sadava | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

In 2004 traces of a poison called ricin were found in a U.S. Senate mailroom. Only 1/10,000 of an ounce of ricin can be fatal. Ricin's enzymes inhibit gene expression; as a result, when ricin is introduced to animal cells, the cells die. This lecture explains how gene expression happens.
