Ribosomes are responsible for protein synthesis in a cell by translating messenger RNA, or mRNA, into amino acid chains. Ribosomes exist in the cell's fluid component and are bound to the rough endoplasmic reticulum. More »

Ribosomes are microscopic structures within living cells that convert genetic code into an amino acid sequence. They are also responsible for converting amino acid monomers into more complex structures called polymers. R... More »

Ribosomes are a type of organelle found in every cell, and their main function is to synthesize proteins for use throughout the cell. In the ribosomes, individual amino acids are arranged into long protein chains accordi... More »

Unattached ribosomes, also known as free ribosomes, are described by Seattlepi as intracellular bodies that initiate protein synthesis by translating messenger RNA. These bodies float freely in the cytosol. The mRNA that... More »

RNA is important to cells because it relays information encoded in DNA to tiny organs within the cell, called ribosomes, which produce protein according to the RNA's instructions. RNA is thus vital to the basic functioni... More »

The nucleolus contains all of the information needed for DNA replication, flow of proteins and RNA, all while controlling the synthesis of protein and cell replication. The nucleolus has several parts: the nuclear envelo... More »
