Question Video: Stating the Final Product of Translation Biology

What is the final product of translation?


Video Transcript

What is the final product of translation? (A) A sequence of DNA nucleotides, (B) a sequence of tRNA molecules, (C) an mRNA molecule, (D) a polypeptide chain, (E) an RNA molecule.

In order for a gene in DNA to be converted into a protein, it needs to go through two steps. The first step is called transcription, and it produces mRNA. The second step is called translation, where the sequence of mRNA is converted into a sequence of amino acids to form a polypeptide. This polypeptide can then go on to fold into a protein with a specific shape and function.

So the final product of translation is given by answer choice (D), a polypeptide chain.
