There the link between the transfer RNA and the amino acid is broken. The amino acid is used for protein synthesis and the transfer RNA is free to go off to collect another amino acid molecule. 14 Schematic diagram of a short length of a DNA molecule showing how the genetic code works. understood if specific examples are used. The amino acid phenylalanine is specified by the base code AAA, glutamic acid is specified by the base code CTC, while tyrosine is specified by the base code AT A. Thus the sequence of bases CTC-ATA-AAA on DNA would be the plan for a short peptide chain of composition glutamic acid-tyrosine-phenylalanine.

Although the droplets can pass through the gut wall they are still too large to cross the walls of the capillaries to enter the blood. Instead they enter the much more porous lymphatic vessels. They are carried by the lymph directly into the venous blood, bypassing the portal system and the liver. normally because of lack of insulin. In these circumstances, because of lack of oxaloacetic acid, fat breakdown tends to be halted at the stage of acetyl coenzyme A. Acetyl coenzyme A molecules therefore accumulate and react with one another to give three other substances, acetoacetic acid, betahydroxybutyric acid and acetone.

That protein consists of a chain of amino acids and the plan for it is represented by a chain of groups of three bases on the DNA molecule. The first thing that 32 An Introduction to Human Physiology happens is that an impression of this length of DNA is made by manufacturing a messenger RNA molecule which is complementary to it. This is possible because each base in the DNA molecule orders the insertion of another base in the messenger RNA molecule. DNA adenine orders RNA uracil, DNA cytosine orders RNA guanine, DNA thymine orders RNA adenine.
