Why Are Ribosomes Important?
What are ribosomes.
Ribosomes are small protein factories found in cells.
They are located in the cytoplasm and on the ER
See the small dots on the ER and in the cytoplasm
Here is how the ribosome makes a protein.
In the cytoplasm DNA is transcribed to RNA
The ribosome reads the RNA in triplets and the correct amino acids are put together to create a protein.
Ribosomes are found in plant,animal, and bacterial cells.
