So, if the template strand displays a G, DNA polymerase adds a C; if the template strand displays an A, DNA polymerase adds a T. And so on. DNA polymerase chugs along templates in one direction only, 3’ to 5’, making new strands 5’ to 3’. This task is straightforward with one template strand, the leading strand, but more complicated with the complementary template, the lagging strand. On the lagging strand, DNA polymerase continually bumps up against the replication fork. DNA polymerase must make the new strand discontinuously, in short stretches called Okazaki fragments.

In the A site, an appropriate tRNA, carrying its amino acid payload, binds to the next codon of the mRNA. When a correct codon-anticodon match is made in the A site, the ribosome acts as an enzyme, catalyzing the covalent bonding of amino acids attached to the A site and P site tRNAs. As this bonding takes place, the mRNA and the tRNAs ratchet through the ribosome exactly one codon; this ratcheting movement is called translocation. Translocation shifts the A site tRNA into the P site, and shifts the P site tRNA into the E site, where it is released from the ribosome.

In a recent year composite scores between 108 to 150 received a 5 93 to 107 received a 4 72 to 92 received a 3 43 to 71 received a 2 0 to 42 received a 0 This range changes every year. Why, you ask?
