The pathway of a tRNA during polypeptide elongation on the ribosome is
P site → A site → E site
A site → P site → entry site
P site → entry site → exit site
A site → P site → E site
A polysome could be best described as
All of the above.
an active site of lipid synthesis.
an active site of DNA synthesis.
an active site of protein synthesis.
Eukaryotic mRNA binding to the ribosomes is facilitated by __________
poly A tail

Which of the following is not a necessary component of translation
The structure in a bacterium that indicates an active site for protein synthesis is

Which is required for protein synthesis
All of These
The site of protein synthesis is
The site on a bacterial chromosome that marks the termination point for chromosome replication is called
a stop codon.
Ribosomes select the correct tRNAs
then bind to the appropriate mRNA
solely on the basis of their anticodons
with the least abundant anticodons
depending on their abundance in the cytosol
Degenerated codon differs mostly in
the identities of their second base
both (b) and (c)
the identities of their third base
the wobble position
Processive synthesis is a characteristic feature of
DNA Pol III at a replication fork.
all DNA polymerases.

removal of RNA primers on Okasaki fragments.
Type I proteins (plasma membrane) have a
multiple signal sequence that doubles as the membrane anchoring sequence
cleavage N- terminal signal sequence and a hydrophobic stop transfer sequence
multiple signal sequence and a hydrophobic stop transfer sequence
cleavaged N- terminal signal sequence that doubles as the membrane anchoring sequence
The direction of amino acid transfer to the growing polypeptide chain is
from the P site to the E site on the ribosome
from the A site to the E (exit tRNA site) site on the ribosome
from the P site to the A site on the ribosome
from the A (aminoacyl tRNA site) site to the P (peptidyl tRNA site) site on the ribosome
