How are amino acids made from mRNA?
1) Amino acids are generated during Step 2: Translation
2) In this step, the mRNA travels out of the nucleus and attaches to a ribosome.
3) Inside the ribosome, a tRNA brings the proper amino acid into the ribosome, along with the anti codon (the complementary group of three nucleotides that match the mRNA strand).
4) As each codon of the mRNA passes through the ribosome, a tRNA delivers its anticodon and the appropriate amino acid.
