        How Do Cells Make Proteins?

        In this interactive activity from the Exploratorium, explore the steps of protein synthesis in which the cells use genes to make proteins for critical body functions. Cells use genes to make proteins for critical jobs like carrying oxygen and contracting muscles. Explore the steps of protein synthesis, the process by which DNA is transcribed and translated into the tens of thousands of different types of proteins that make us what we are.

        This media asset comes from the Exploratorium’s Cell Explorer.
