Translation

This video demonstrates translation with the DNA and Protein Sets. These LEGO® models are designed to show both structure and function. Nucleotides pair with each other using the ball and basket joint. The bright orange subunits are the RNA nucleotides, and the large triangular pieces are the transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules. In translation, the ribosome produces proteins from the codes in the messenger RNA (mRNA). The tRNA molecules bind to the mRNA strand if their 3 letter codes match. The tRNA molecules arrive towing amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. The amino acids join to form a protein chain and in the last step, the protein folds into its final shape. This video corresponds to tRNA Booklet 1, pages 4-24. NOTE: This video has no sound.
