ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Teach protein synthesis in a new way with our easy to make model!

Show how genetic information in DNA is used to make proteins in a cell. Your students begin by making their models of DNA, mRNA, amino acids, enzymes and tRNA and then learn about what happens during protein synthesis.

• Students will look at transcription and see how the genetic information in DNA is transcribed into messenger RNA (mRNA).
• They then follow the mRNA as it travels from the nucleus into the cytoplasm.
• Visualize how ribosomes translate this genetic information into the amino acid code used in proteins.
• The essential role of carrier molecules (transfer RNAs or tRNAs) is explained.
• The model allows the students to synthesize a 3 amino acid long protein.
• The model takes just 30 minutes to make!

Origami Organelles are downloadable paper models that you print and make as many times as you like! When you purchase a model, you are licensed for unlimited use on a single site or campus.
