Protein Synthesis


  Protein synthesis is the process in which cells build proteins. The term is sometimes used to refer only to protein translation but more often it refers to a multi-step process, beginning with amino acid synthesis and transcription of nuclear DNA into messenger RNA, which is then used as input to translation.
  Your task is to watch the animation on the link and answer the questions regarding protein synthesis.
  1) Go the link below on your computer.
2) Watch the animation.
3) take notes on the important points reflected.
4) Using your notes answer the questions below.
5) Write your conclusion.

Conclusion will be worth 30 points, and each of the individual questions are worth 10 points.
  1) What essembles on the mRNA?
2) What are the elements on the P and A sites?
3) What is transferred between the sites?
4) The process is repeated resulting in what kind of a chain?
5) What are release factors?
6) how does translation end?
7) What is the goal of this process?
  Write a short summary on the process of protein synthesis.
