    Mechanism of Protein Synthesis

    All ribosomes have a ribonucleoprotein structure made up of two unequal subunits, both of which contain three binding sites for tRNA: the A (aminoacyl), P (peptidyl) and E (exit) sites. Sequential movement of tRNAs from the A site to the P site to the E site is coupled with movement of their associated codons in the mRNA. More info...
