5 Questions

What is the process of translation in gene expression?

Translation is the process of converting the nucleotide sequence of mRNA (codons) into an amino acid sequence of a protein to synthesize proteins.

What is a codon and how is it related to the genetic code?

A codon is a sequence of 3 nucleotides that specifies a particular amino acid. The collection of these codons makes up the genetic code.

What are the requirements for the translational process?

The requirements for the translational process include mRNA as a carrier of genetic information and tRNA as an adapter molecule that recognizes an amino acid on one end and has an anticodon on the other end.

How is protein biosynthesis related to the process of translation?

Protein biosynthesis is called translation because it involves the translation of information from the language and structure of nucleic acid into the language and structure of proteins.

What is the role of translation and post-translational modification in health and disease?

Translation and post-translational modification play a crucial role in regulating protein function, and any disruptions in these processes can lead to various health and disease conditions.
