How does DNA make protein? Kassidy king


~DNA holds codes for proteins

~RNA puts codes into action

~DNA is single stranded

~RNA is double stranded

~DNA is deoxyribose

~RNA is ribose

DNA Replication

A initiator protein unwinds a short stretch of the DNA double helix. Then a helicase attaches to and breaks apart the hydrogen bonds between the bases on the DNA strands, pulling apart the two strands.


The information in a strand of DNA is copied into a new molecule of mRNA. DNA safely stores genetic material in the nuclei of cells as a reference, or template. This happens in the nucleus.


Where ribosomes in a cell's cytoplasm create proteins. mRNA is decoded by a ribosome, outside of the nucleus, to produce a amino acid chain, or polypeptide. It happens in the ribosome.
