Making a Protein—Translation
Second Step: Decoding of mRNA into a protein is called Translation.
Transfer RNA (tRNA) carries amino acids from the cytoplasm to the ribosome. Mais
These amino acids come from the food we eat. Proteins we eat are broken down into individual amino acids and then simply rearranged into new proteins according to the needs and directions of our DNA. A series of three adjacent bases in an mRNA molecule codes for a specific amino acid—called a codon.
Each tRNA has 3 nucleotides that are complementary to the codon in mRNA.
Each tRNA codes for a different amino acid. Making a Protein—Translation
