Protein Synthesis Animation

Protein Synthesis Animation

Protein Synthesis Animation: Translation (protein synthesis) is a fundamental biological process involving a huge (on the molecular scale) protein-RNA machine. A great deal of information on the structure and function of this machine has been discovered in the last few years. Current animations and tutorials on translation are oversimplified; conversely, in the current fine structure representations of the ribosome the basic biological functions are lost in the detail. This animation is meant to marry these two aspects of protein synthesis.

Future Possibilities

Create a zip package with animation and interactive tools for easy download. Add the initiation phase, and termination, of translation. Add 3D models of EF-G in the GTP bound state. Add 3D models of the remaining structures.
