“Soviet RNA Transcription” – Russian Anthem Parody – Westbury Period 8 Class (2017)


What’s wrong comrade? It’s horrible comrade I haven’t had anything to eat for seven days And I’m dying from hypothermia Pay no mind comrade Due to the solicitation of our great leader We have discovered a way to transcribe RNA Come comrade, to the RNA transcription factory! Viva la Stalin mi amigos! Our great leader is truly glorious RNA transcription is very important It allows us humans to create proteins Starts in DNA, RNA Polymerase Finds the promoter and begins transcripting One nucleotide at a time A to U; G to C Antiparallel Complementary New RNA from 5′ to 3′ mRNA is made Its importance cannot be underplayed The mRNA strand gets larger in size as it goes 3′ to 5′ along the template strand And transcribes the nucleotides on the new strand The bubble moves through until it terminates One nucleotide at a time A to U; G to C Antiparallel Complementary New RNA from 5 to 3 mRNA is made It’s importance cannot be underplayed RNA polymerase keeps reading DNA Until it hits a terminator sequence Then it stops coding for the mRNA strand The strand falls off and it goes on its way One nucleotide at a time A to U; G to C Antiparallel Complementary new RNA from 5′ to 3′ mRNA is made It’s importance cannot be underplayed!
