The 3 steps for Transcription and Translation
Transcription in 3 steps
mRNA and ribosomes come together at start codon.
NTPs are added in the 5' to 3' direction.
Self termination with a stem loop
mRNA and ribosomes come together
Starts at the P site with the AUG start codon
First amino acid is methionine
Add amino acids and form a peptide bond
Ribosome moves down the mRNA to the next codon
Ribosome reaches the stop codon (UAA,UAG, and UGA)
Causes them all to come apart
