Explain the process to someone else who doesnt know it, and research the bits you can’t explain, until you can explain them

what is the best way to understand protein synthesis
1) A promoter activates protein synthesis. It’s a sequence of DNA at the start of a gene.

2) DNA unzips to allow Messenger RNA (mRNA) access

3) mRNA molecules pair up with 3 appropriate DNA base pairs. (Eg if DNA has ATG codon that becomes UAC in mRNA)

4) the mRNA molecules form a chain and when complete go to Ribosome.

5) Transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules are each attached to an appropriate amino acid.

6) tRNA pairs up with a mRNA 3 base molecule. So our UAC codon pairs with a AUG tRNA and that codes for the amino acid Methionine.

7) the amino acids join to form a polypeptide chain and eventually a protein.

So simply put.

DNA is copied by mRNA in 3 letter codes.
mRNA goes to ribosomes to match with tRNA which brings an appropriate amino acid.
The amino acids link to form a protein.
