Protein Synthesis Steps

STUDY
PLAY
1
DNA unzips in the nucleus in interphase
2
mRNA nucleotides transcribe the complementary DNA message
3
mRNA leaves nucleus and goes to ribosome
4
mRNA attaches to ribosome and first codon is read
5
tRNA with anticodon UAC brings in proper amino acid from cytoplasm
6
a second tRNA brings in new amino acid
7
ribosome adds amino acid to the first amino acid with a peptide bond
8
ribosome slides to next codon for translation
9
tRNA released into cytoplasm until needed again
10
tRNA returns to ribosome, adds amino acid to growing polypeptide chain
11
ribosome continues sliding along mRNA until stop codon is reached
12
New Poplypeptide chain (protein) is completed
