Transcription is the biological process where information in a strand of DNA is copied into a new molecule of messenger RNA. This transcribed DNA message or RNA transcript produces proteins. More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

Transcription takes place in the cell's nucleus. The process of transcription makes an RNA strand from a DNA template and is the first step toward making a protein, according to the University of New Mexico's Biology Dep... More » Science Biology Cells

Cell transcription occurs in the nucleus of the cell where the DNA is located. Transcription is the process whereby a DNA base sequence is copied to form an RNA molecule. The production of mRNA requires a DNA template. More » Science Biology Cells

RNA polymerase copies the template strand of DNA and creates a complementary strand of messenger RNA. The newly created RNA strand serves as the template for creating a protein, so RNA polymerase is an essential componen... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

During the transcription of genetic data to new cells, DNA is encoded to mRNA, also known as messenger RNA. The mRNA is then prepared to create a new DNA molecule through genetic codes established by amino acids. More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

Protein synthesis begins with the transcription of DNA into messenger RNA in the nucleus. After transcription, the messenger RNA reaches the ribosome where it is translated into amino acids. A chain of these amino acids,... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA
