One by one, amino acids are added to the growing chain until the  ribosome has moved down to the end of the mRNA molecule.  Because of the specificity of tRNA molecules for their individual  amino acids, and because of the base pairing between codons and  anticodons, the sequence of codons on the mRNA molecule

Unformatted text preview: determines the sequence of amino acids in the protein being constructed. And because the codon sequence of the mRNA complements the codon sequence of the DNA, the DNA molecule ultimately directs the amino acid sequencing in proteins....
