mRNA Substance which is single stranded and carries information from the nucleus to a ribosome with instructions to make a protein
tRNA Substance with is single stranded and brings amino acids to the ribosome to create a protein
Transcription Process that occurs in the nucleus and creates strands of RNA
Translation Process that occurs at a ribosome and results in the creation of a protein
Codon A section of mRNA which consists of 3 nucleotide bases which codes for a specific amino acid
Amino Acid Bonded together at a ribosome to make a protein
Frameshift Mutation Insertion or deletion of a nucleotide which results in errors in mRNA and a change to the needed protein
Point Mutation Substitution of a nucleotide base which results in errors in mRNA and a change to the needed protein
