DNA unzips in the nucleus in interphase


mRNA nucleotides transcribe the complementary DNA message


mRNA leaves nucleus and goes to ribosome


mRNA attaches to ribosome and first codon is read


tRNA with anticodon UAC brings in proper amino acid from cytoplasm


a second tRNA brings in new amino acid


ribosome adds amino acid to the first amino acid with a peptide bond


ribosome slides to next codon for translation


tRNA released into cytoplasm until needed again


tRNA returns to ribosome, adds amino acid to growing polypeptide chain


ribosome continues sliding along mRNA until stop codon is reached


New Poplypeptide chain (protein) is completed
