The process of copying of the genetic information from one strand of DNA into RNA is termed as transcription. This is the first step required for synthesis. Transcription is also based on the complementarity of the strand. Also, only one strand of the DNA is converted into . One transcription unit consists of 3 regions: A promoter, the Structural Gene and a Terminator. The promoter is located towards the 5’ end and defines the template and coding strand. The terminator is towards the 3’ end defining the end of transcription process. The is transcribed in 5' to 3’ direction by polymerase.

Ribonucleic Acid -- it has a ribose sugar and uses the same bases as DNA EXCEPT it replaces Uracil for Thymine.
RNA makes a copy of the DNA strand in order to transport the "code" out of the nucleus to the ribosome (site of protein synthesis).

After translation, the protein passes into the channels of the rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER) for transportation. The protein is then passed from the rough ER to the Golgi apparatus inside tiny fluid-filled sacs, called vesicles. The Golgi apparatus is a system of , which are responsible for the modification, processing, and packaging of the proteins. The protein may have a carbohydrate added, to form a glycoprotein. The Golgi apparatus packages the protein in a secretory vesicle, which fuses with the cell membrane and releases the protein from the cell.

This code determines the type of amino acids and the order in which they are joined together to make a specific protein. The sequence of amino acids in a protein determines its structure and function.
What are the basic steps of protein synthesis? | Chemistry
The amino acids are joined to form proteins by peptide bonds. The formation of peptide bonds requires a good amount of energy. Therefore, in the first phase of translation for protein synthesis, the amino acids are activated in the presence of ATP and linked to their cognate tRNA (transfer RNA). This process is called as charging of the tRNA or aminoacylation of tRNA. If two such charged tRNA are brought close enough, the formation of peptide bond between them is favored energetically. This function occurs inside the , as it contains two sites for subsequent amino acids to bind to and thus be close enough for bonding.

For initiation of the translation process, the ribosome binds to the mRNA at the start codon recognized by the initiator tRNA. The ribosome then proceeds to the elongation phase of protein synthesis. During this stage, the complexes formed by amino acids are linked to tRNA, sub sequentially to bind to the appropriate codon in mRNA by forming complimentary base pairs with the tRNA anticodon. The ribosome moves from codon to codon along the mRNA. Amino acids are added one by one, translated into polypeptide sequences dictated by the DNA and represented by mRNA. At the end, release factor binds to the stop codon, thus terminating the translation stage and completing the protein synthesis process. The complete polypeptide is released from the .
