▶ Protein Synthesis Animation Video - 2:25 tRNA is joined to the mRNA by a peptide bond. A tRNA moved into the Asite where the codons match the mRNA the Ribosome shifts down by one codon at a time and new amino acids are added one at a time. It cuts off when a stop codon moves into the A site on the mRNA. The mRNA & the amino acid/protein are both released by the ribosome. p-site, A (acceptor) site & E site =Exit
Remember that amino acids are held together by a peptide bond! This is an image from our protein synthesis video! We go over the steps of transcription and translation and the roles that ribosomes, DNA, and RNA play. We also compare and contrast RNA and DNA and explain the three different types of RNA.

Are you looking for modified peptides? Have you ever wondered how they are made or what they are used for? We explain it! Have a look at our new peptide synthesis webpage. Our chemists explain all major peptide modifications and when to use them.
