about the science stuff so do goodly.
This machine that I created, has just created a protein from a RNA sample. It looks as that the machine has amplified the size of the protein as well allowing us to study it. What? You don't know how proteins are made. Well let me explain.
Well you see, you are made up of different types of cells. This is what a cell looks like up close. Inside the cell is the nucleus, which acts like a brain for the cell. This is where your DNA strands are held. DNA is very important to your body. One of the features that DNA has, is that it is a key factor in creating protein.
For DNA to become protein it first has to go through a process called transcription. Transcripton is when the DNA strands that are being held in the nucleus, unfold from their nle helix form and "unzip". Then an enzyme scans the DNA and createsa complementary strand of RNA. The difference between DNA and RNA is that RNA uses uresel instead of thymine.
The RNA strand exists the Nucleus and makes its way into the cytoplasm where it finds a rybosome. This is where the next step, translation, happen. Translation is when the ribosome reads the RNA three nuciatieds at a time and then a TRNA gets an amino acid that corresponds with it.
After a certain amount of amino acids are produced, they start to link together. When the ribosome is done reading the RNA the amino acids break off and start to create a three dimentional shape. This shape is a protein and this protein then does whatever job it was made to do.
If either of these processes are messed up than a protein will most likely be created improperly. If a protein is created improperly, there are many different things that could get messed up. Depending on what the proteins job was supposed to be, different parts of the body would be effected. Some parts would be anti- bodies, hair, nails, enzymes, hormones and can even bind atoms or other small molecules together.
