Protein synthesis is a biological process that allows individual cells to build specific proteins. Both DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)and RNA (ribonucleic acids) are involved in the process, which is initiated in the cell's... More »

There are four organelles found in eukaryotic cells that aid in the synthesis of proteins. These organelles include the nucleus, the ribosomes, the rough endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus. All of these organe... More »

Transcription RNA, or tRNA, carries amino acids to the messenger RNA, or mRNA, as it exits the cell nucleus and contributes them to the building of proteins. Each unit of tRNA carries a specific amino acid, and when the ... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

Protein synthesis is important because the proteins created during this process control the activities of the cells. Without these proteins, many of the processes in the body would fail or not work properly. The DNA in e... More »

Protein synthesis is a two-step process that individual cells undergo to manufacture proteins necessary to their survival. Specific enzymes within a cell's nucleus initiate protein synthesis by unwinding sections of deox... More »

Protein synthesis is the process of converting the DNA sequence to a sequence of amino acids to form a specific protein. It involves three main steps: transcription of mRNA from the DNA sequence, initiation of the transl... More »

Protein synthesis occurs in structures within cells known as ribosomes, which are found outside the nucleus. It is one of the most important cell processes. While the actual synthesis occurs outside the nucleus of the ce... More »
