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 play an important biological role in the task of protein synthesis. Ribosomes essentially act as messengers to receive and transmit critical information. Without them, cell messages would not be read and reprod... More »

In the cells of eukaryotic organisms, the subunits that will become ribosomes are produced within the subnuclear structure called the nucleolus, and the subunits then combine in the cell's cytoplasm to become functioning... 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 »
