• In Transcription, RNA Polymerase
unwinds a small portion of the DNA.
Then, mRNA matches the bases of
the DNA. The mRNA breaks away
from the DNA and passes through
the nuclear pores to get to the
• In Translation, the mRNA comes in
contact with the ribosome. The
ribosome will then read the mRNA and
translate it. Then, tRNA anticodons
are created for each codon. Each
anticodon codes for a specific amino
acid. The tRNA finds the correct amino
acid and all the amino acids are strung
together to form a protein.
