DNA - PROTEIN SYNTHESIS: Quick Check
In this activity, you have done DNA translation as a code-deciphering process, but you were asked to
follow intermediate steps much the way molecular intermediaries in our cells do it. In order to check
your understanding of the cellular players in the real process of DNA translation, study the two
analogies below. The Protein Synthesis "players" are roughly sequenced (top to bottom) in their order
of action in the cell. The sequences of the "players" in each of the two analogies have been scrambled.
CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING BY MATCHING: For each "player" in the process of
Protein Synthesis listed down the center, indicate the letter for the correct matching
"player" from the "construction analogy" on the left. For another check on your
understanding, do the same thing with the "tape player analogy" on the right.
