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 » Science Biology

Synthesis generally refers to the combining of multiple elements into a single entity or compound. While synthesis sometimes results naturally, scientists in many fields perform synthesis as part of experimentation, solu... More » Science Chemistry

The acronym rRNA stands for ribosomal ribonucleic acid. It is the RNA component of the ribosome in the cell. rRNA is essential for amino acid and protein synthesis and is a key component of translation in the cell. 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 » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

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 » Science Biology Cells

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 » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

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 » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA
