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 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 »

Prokaryotic cells contain ribosomes to handle their protein production. The ribosomes in prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria, are free floating in the cytosol of the cell rather than bound inside a nuclear membrane; this... 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 »

Enzymes are a type of protein, and like other proteins, they are made by the translation of the genetic code into a particular sequence of amino acids by ribosomes. After the enzyme is created as a chain of amino acids, ... More »

The function of tRNA is to decode an mRNA sequence into a protein and transfer that protein to the ribosomes where DNA is replicated. The tRNA decides what amino acid is needed according to the codon from the mRNA molecu... More »

The anticodon of transfer ribonucleic acid (tRNA) is a sequence of three bases that is complementary to the three-base sequence of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) to specify the production of an amino acid, according t... More »
