Flashcards in 4A - Stages of Protein Synthesis Deck (7):
1

Stage 1

DNA double helix is separated

2

Stage 2

mRNA is made using DNA strand = Transcription

3

Stage 3`

mRNA leaves nucleus and enters the cytoplasm

4

Stage 4

mRNA joins onto a ribosome

5

Stage 5

The mRNA acts as a code for tRNA = translation

6

Stage 6

Amino acids on neighbouring tRNA join together

7

Stage 7

The polypeptide chain folds to form a protein which is used in the cell or exported to the body
