Template strand DNA is read 3' to 5' while the new RNA is synthesized from 5' to 3'.F. Template strand DNA is read 5' to 3' while the new RNA is synthesized from 3' to 5'.

FREE Expert Solution

Translation is the process of polypeptide synthesis using an mRNA template. This polypeptide may or may not combine a multi-subunit structure. But in the end, all translation products will form a functional protein. This process happens in the ribosomes of the rough endoplasmic reticulum.
