-hooks together RNA nucleotides to make a strand
-guided to promoter by special proteins called transcription factors, then moves along DNA to separate strands
-forms RNA molecule
-RNA polymerase releases finished mRNA molecule, then falls off DNA
-RNA molecule that carries the coding information (codons) one right after another
-codes for a particular amino acid
-helps translate nucleotide codons into protein
-pairs amino acids and codons
-one end has anti-codon, other has correct amino acid
-has large and small subunits
-1 binding site for mRNA, 3 for tRNA (E, P, A)
-Releases the protein, ribosome separates into subunits ready to translate next mRNA
