The answer is C. tRNA is converted to mRNA before protein (amino acid) synthesis. If the tRNA is not functioning properly, this conversion and synthesis will fail or produce erratic and undesirable amino acids.

Gabrielle Originally Answered: Biology: Protein Synthesis (DNA -> mRNA -> tRNA -> Amino Acid)?
Your messenger RNA goes to the ribosomes where it meets up with transfer RNA (tRNA). tRNA brings the appropriate amino acid to the ribosomes which is catalyzing the reaction. You can find which amino acid you need by translating the mRNA. For example, a strand of mRNA is: CUA AUC GUU. tRNA will bring the amino acids Leu, Ile, Val to the ribosome for it to attach to the growing protein chain.

once u find the tRNA , it goes to the ribosomes in the cytoplasm or the endoplasmic reticulum - there , it is translated into the respective amino acids there are in all 20 types of amino acids makin different proteins according to the position of amino acids there is uniqueness in the proteins . u must be knowing about the nitrogen bases -A,U,G,C. - so , while translation , three bases in sequence stand for one amino acid making a possible 64 combinations. this way , more n more pairs as such as made according to the code in the RNA .

transfer-RNA (tRNA) matches RNA anti-codons with amino acids, so if tRNA were not functioning properly the mRNA sequences could not be translated into a sequence of amino acids.

Dawn Originally Answered: The sodium-potassium pump is important in what cell function? a) mitosis b) replication of DNA c) muscle cell?
c) muscle cell contraction. Needed to generate the nerve action potential for muscle contraction.

there's an entirely different point of view that some biologists have. the basic unit of life is the DNA (or sometimes RNA as in some viruses) and not the cell. all the activities of a cell are at the end in the interest of the DNA. so the replication of a cell is essentially the replication of the genetic material and the new cell is nothing but a new apartment for the newly synthesized DNA. of course living systems are a lot more complex than we can imagine and the exact reason behind every cellular activity is not yet known.
