      I’m correcting one my of tests and looking for answers so I can study for finals.
      I couldn’t find any answers in my text. 😕
      Any help would be appreciated.

      1. In the process of protein synthesis, an enzyme will trigger a sequence of triplets of bases that encodes a protein, which is called a ______, to unzip from the segment of the DNA to produce a mRNA. This process is also called _______.. Then the mRNA will be decodes by the ______, and this step is called _____.

      2. Specialized substructures, such as chloroplasts in plant cells and ____ in animal cells, are called ____ in eukaryotic cells.

      Honestly, I have problems to see what they want. But let’s try.

      no idea
      probably transcription
      ribosome?
      probably translation

      I will only say that the second is probably "semi-autonomic"

      I think the answers are:
      1. Gene
      2,3,4: what Jackbean said (transcription, ribosome, translation.

      5 mitochondria? 6. organelles

      I thought number 1 was gene as well. But I apparently I got marked off by it (I think). No idea, my professor has a weird hand writing.

      Well, other sources tell me that it’s a codon. Any verification would help though. Not 100% sure.

      yes, triplet of bases is called codon
