Transcribing RNA to Proteins

This messenger RNA     is translated in the cell body, with the help of ribosomes and tRNA, into a string of amino acids (a protein).  The ribosome     holds the messenger RNA in place and the transfer RNA     places the appropriate amino acid     into the forming protein.
