|She still doesn't look at the camera. Probably plotting something amazing.|
|Crazy hair day. The pink actually made her blend in *better* at school. |
Important note: colored hair spray comes out. Colored mousse does NOT.
|We couldn't resist. She LOVES Elsa.|
- Enzymes are proteins that do stuff (make stuff, break stuff down, change stuff into other stuff) in the body.
- Proteins are made of amino acids
- Instructions for making proteins are in your DNA
- When you need to make a protein, your DNA "unzips" in the section with those instructions, they are transcribed, copied, and used as a recipe to gather the amino acids that make up the protein.
- DNA nucleotides (the "rungs" on the double-helix "ladder") are represented by letters.
- Every 3 letters makes up a "codon", which is the call-sign for a particular amino acid.
- Protein "recipes" start with a "start" codon, and end with a "stop" codon.
