Storyboard Text

  • Hello there! I will be explaining protein synthesis to you!
  • OK, so first you must go through Transcription. Transcription is when the DNA splits in two, then one side becomes mRNA or messenger RNA. It goes into a ribosome to be translated. 
  • After transcription, the ribosome scans or reads the mRNA and sends the correct amino acids in correct order. tRNA helps with placing them in order. It assists the ribosome in translation.
  • HEY! Also did you know that there are 4 enzymes that help with protein synthesis. Helicase, DNA polymerase, Primase and Ligase. Helicase splits the DNA, DNA polymerase builds another strand of DNA identical to the RNA. But this guy cannot do it by himself, he needs guidance from primase. Primase leads the DNA polymerase on where to go. And Ligase glues it all together.
  • After translation, protein is created from the amino acids. 
  • So that's that and this is the process of protein synthesis and how proteins are created.
