Unformatted text preview: mRNA binds to the small subunit. After mRNA binds, the large subunit binds and protein synthesis begins. Read the short section on ribosomes, pg 102-103, to find out where ribosomes go to finish protein synthesis, and answer the following questions. 4. Synthesis of all proteins begins first on free ribosomes (True or False). 5. If synthesis of a protein is completed by a free ribosome, where in the cell will the protein function? 6. If a protein is going to be secreted where will protein synthesis be completed? 7. To understand how secreted proteins are synthesized look carefully at Figure 17.21 in your text. In your own words , write 6 statements that describe each step shown in the process of a ribosome that is making a secreted protein. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6....
