Unformatted text preview: d to create messenger RNA (mRNA) or rRNA or tRNA etc. Translation Sequence mRNA specifies amino acid sequence in polypeptide according to a code. Ribosome assembles the amino acid sequence NOTE THE KEY DIFFERENCES! 11 Fig. 13-3, p. 287 Prokaryote occur in one compartment, eukaryote in different compartments. It will be processed in the nucleus, transported and then translated. How they get from one place to another is regulated. Since transcription and translation occur in the same compartment, they can be coupled. So you can be translating while its being transcribed. Transcription is going 5' to 3', when the 5' end is released thats got the condos that code for amino terminal so we can bind ribosomes and start translating. They cannot be in the eukaryote unless you are in an organelle b/c both processes occur in the same compartment.
