Eucariotic vs Procariotic replication & transcription

Post by SU_reptile » Sat Oct 21, 2006 7:32 pm

Hi everyone.
For the comming test in biochemistry I need to acquainted with differences between replication and transcription between procariotic and eucariotic organisms.

I know that there're different polymerases, there's different structure of genome, some different proteins take built promotors in these organisms.

Have you got any other remarks?

Hm.. Strange question. Both in prokaryotes and eukaryoutes the processes are very different in details but generally work on the same principles.
Remarks depend to what level of detalization you're digging.

one major difference between the two is that in prokaryotes, transcriptions and translation can occurs on the same time, because they have no rER.

--> often you see bound ribosomes to a still synthesized mRNA-strand.

Yeah, thx for your remark sdekivit. That's true.
I have that test tomorrow but I found some other, more detailed differences on my own.
