Storyboard Text

  • Making Proteins
  • 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
