Problem: Which of the following statements regarding translation is true?A. During peptide bond formation, the amino acids attached to the tRNA in the P site are covalently joined to the E site amino acid.B. During codon recognition, the incoming tRNA anticodon base-pairs with the mRNA codon in the P site.C. After translocation, the tRNA which had been in the P site is now in the A site.D. mRNA is translated in the 5' to 3' direction, while the protein is synthesized in the N-terminal to C-terminal direction.E. Polyribosomes are ribosomes that are associated with more than one mRNA.
