Peptide bond- definition, formation, degradation, examples

Peptide bond

What is a peptide? A peptide is a short-chain made up of amino acid which, together with other peptides, forms a protein. The number of amino acids in a peptide can range from two amino acids to fifty amino acids. Based on the number of amino acids present in the peptide, peptides are of many … Read more Peptide bond- definition, formation, degradation, examples

Prokaryotic Translation (Protein Synthesis)

Prokaryotic Translation (Protein Synthesis)

Prokaryotic Translation (Protein Synthesis) Translation involves translating the sequence of a messenger RNA (mRNA) molecule to a sequence of amino acids during protein synthesis. It is the process in which ribosomes in the cytoplasm or ER synthesize proteins after the process of transcription of DNA to RNA. The Ribosomes Ribosomes exist normally as separate subunits that are composed of protein and rRNA. The subunits come together to form … Read more Prokaryotic Translation (Protein Synthesis)
