Biochemistry, molecular genetics, and biology glossary terms for Companion Sites.


Translation is the ultimate step in gene expression, in which archival genetic instructions that have been transcribed from DNA into RNA are converted into sequences of amino acids in peptides, polypeptides, and proteins at cytoplasmic ribosomes. Translation involves initiation, elongation, and termination steps.
