Summary of Translation
DNA translation is the process in which ribosomes in a cell’s cytoplasm creates proteins, following transcription of DNA to RNA in the cell nucleus. Messenger RNA is decoded by a ribosome to produce a specific amino acid chain, or polypeptide. Complementary tRNA molecules carry specific amino acids and utilize anticodon sequences to bind to mRNA codons. The amino acids are chained together as the messenger RNA is “read” by the ribosome.

RNA is the type of RNA that serves as the location of protein synthesis during DNA translation.
