Unformatted text preview: area. 2. Ribosomal RNA (rRNA)---this type makes up the ribosomes, along with ribosomal proteins, which mostly are enzymes. The rRNA reads the mRNA to determine the sequence (order) of amino acids to be put into the protein. The ribosomal enzymes build the peptide bonds that hold the protein together. 3. Transfer RNA (tRNA)---binds to a specific amino acid (which it finds in the cytoplasm) and brings it to the ribosome. To begin the process of protein synthesis, genetic information in DNA is used as a pattern to make a complementary strand of messenger RNA. This part of the process is called transcription. The mRNA carries the instructions for making the protein to a ribosome, where amino acids will be linked together in the second step of the process, translation....
