Protein synthesis is a two step process where the genetic mRNA is decoded in order to create amino acids/ the building blocks of DNA
the mRNA is read in sets of codons (groups of three) by the ribosomes tocreate proteins and then depending on the anti codons (letters that pair with the codons) a certain amino acid is created for the DNA. this is known as translation
UAC AGG CAG AUC GAU AGG CAU GAC CAG UAU
once the anti codons are figured out, they are then translated to be certain amino acids. then the proteins are created. below are some examples
However, at this point there was an error in the translating sequence and the wrong protein was created. This eventually led to the disease
However, Pelizaeus Merzbacher disease is only one disease that can be caused by a protein error. others include type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's, and also Parkinson's
DNA is a very interesting thing, and there's lots more to go over about but anyways, i hope you learned something from this episode on "Nietorp the Protein".
