Storyboard Text

  • If something goes wrong when the ribosome is reading the mRNA then the protein will not come out correctly and it will not be able to work.
  • The first step in making a protein is unzipping the DNA strand
  • In this step an enzyme comes through and reads one of the sides of the DNA and it creates an mRNA strand
  • This process is called Transcription
  • mRNA
  • The DNA then zips it self back up and the mRNA strand can then leave the nucleus of that cell and find a ribosome
  • When the mRNA and the ribosome find each other the ribosome will read the mRNA and attaches the amino acids to make a protein
  • tRNA to get the correct amino acids the ribosome needs so it can and will create the Protein
