Players in the protein game
Amino Acids
Codons
• Each condon has 3 bases and they pair with
their match
Chromosomes
• Are tightly wound coils of DNA.
Chromosomes can be seen in a light
microscope but in order to see the DNA you
have to have a high powered mircroscope
Cytoplasm
DNA
• All dna does is make protein
Genes
• Each gene codes for one protein
MRNA
• Makes a copy of the dna is a single strand
Nucleus
• Is where all DNA is found
Proteins
• We contain more than 2,000,000 different
proteins. They are built inside cells using Dna
code however it folds that’s the what it does.
Ribosomes
• Ribosomes translate the mRNA, written in the
language of genes, into amino acids, the
language of proteins. They also match nucleic
acids with their partner
RNA polymers and tRNA
• Enzyme
on one end of a trna it has 3 nitrogenous
bases and on the other end it has the amino
acid . We have 20 amino acids. anticodon
