B) as soon as transcription has begun
C) after the 5ʹ caps are converted to mRNA
D) once the pre-mRNA has been converted to mRNA

Which of the following statements are true about protein synthesis in
A) Extensive RNA processing is required before prokaryotic transcripts can be translated.
B) Translation can begin while transcription is still in progress.
C) Prokaryotic cells have complicated mechanisms for targeting proteins to the appropriate cellular
D) Translation requires antibiotic activity.
E) Unlike eukaryotes, prokaryotes require no initiation or elongation factors.
function of restriction enzyme
to cleave nucleic acids at specif sites
Using RNA as a template for protein synthesis instead of translating
proteins directly from the DNA is
advantageous for the cell because
A) RNA is much more stable than DNA.
B) RNA acts as an expendable copy of the genetic material.
C) only one mRNA molecule can be transcribed from a single gene, lowering the potential rate of gene
D) tRNA, rRNA and others are not transcribed.
E) mRNA molecules are subject to mutation but DNA is not.
