Protein is a linear chain of amino acids. Proteins can be enzymes or
serve structural roles in the cell. But, each protein is coded for in
the DNA. Messenger RNA, ribosomes (which contain ribosomal RNA and
proteins), and transfer RNA charged with amino acids all act together to
synthesize one protein from one gene. The key to translating a
sequence of 4 different nucleotides into a sequence of 20 different amino
acids is that three nucleotides code for one amino acid. This is
called the 'triplet codon' which can be compared to three-letter words.
