Brad Smith Challenge 1 Introduction - Proteins are manufactured in the ribosomes. Within the ribosome, there are two steps of synthesis that the amino acids and proteins must undergo transcription and translation. The corresponding RNA molecule is produced by the RNA transcription. Translation is where the ribosome binds to the mRNA at the start codon. There are a total of 20 amino acids that are combined in a poly peptide chain. There are 20 amino acids that we used in our sequence, they include: Glutamine, Valine, Aspartic Acid, Lysine, Alanine, Tryptophan, Tryosine, Arganine, Glutamic Acid, Aspartagine, Phenylalanine, Histidine, Methionine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Proline, Threonine, Cystene, Glycine, Serine. These amino acids can arrange in any number of varying orders so long as they fallow the basic rules to make different proteins. Amino acids are the basic units used that make proteins. Proteins are important because they make up such important compounds as hemoglobin. An alpha helix is the secondary structure of proteins in a right handed coil
