Protein Synthesis Story

Protein Synthesis Story

Storyboard Text

  • I am an evil dictator DNA who lives in a nucleus castle. I have all of my servants do all my work for me. The RNA Polymerase, mRNA's, the rRNA's, and the tRNA's.
  • Since I never go out, I have my RNA Polymerase transcribe my DNA into a mRNA strand, which will then go outside of the nucleus to the ribosome.
  • (the yellow won't turn into white here so just pretend that it is white)
  • I then have my mRNA's move the RNA strand outside to the rRNA's and tRNA's where they translate it to an amino acid from each codon to create an amino acid chain. Right now my RNA is making an insulin chain.
  • It seems that something went wrong with the insulin protein! It must of happened when my RNA polymerase transcribed it.
  • It looks like the last Tyrosine amino acid got transcribed and translated incorrectly into Asparagine. When it goes to fold it might get folded into the wrong shape because tyrosine is an amphipathic which could sometimes be a polar amino acid while Asparagine is polar. Which can cause the whole insulin to malfunction.
