Making Proteins pt.1
By skeenan, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Making proteins starts within the nucleus of a cell, where the DNA is held
The portion of DNA is unzipped by the helicase so that it can be copied, and shipped outside of the nucleus and into the cytoplasm
The DNA is copied in the cell. The copied half is called mRNA
The RNA is shipped to the outside of the nucleus and into the cytoplasm where it is to be read by the ribosome
As this is happening, the ribosome is reading three nucleotides at once, telling the tRNA which amino acids to grab, which than attaches the amino acids to make the protein.
If something were to go wrong in the making of the protein, it wouldn't be able to do itś job
