Write a brief outline of the mechanisms in which DNA is used to generate protein.
In the process of protein synthesis DNA is used as one of the main initial components. Protein synthesis is done by two functions one is transcription and another is a translation. In the process of transcription, mRNA is made from DNA with the help of RNA polymerase. In the process of translation, protein is made based on the information contained in the mRNA. Anticodon (on tRNA) and codon (on mRNA) match up the nucleotides inside the ribosome. tRNA brings the appropriate amino acids to the mRNA and amino acids are chained together to create a polypeptide chain. The central dogma phenomenon also starts from DNA.
