Mitosis is a form of cell division, which produces two daughter cells. Each of these two cells possesses equal number and similar kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth. In case of actively dividing animal cell, the entire process takes one hour to complete.
Protein synthesis poster Proteins are polymers made of amino acids, and they do all sorts of incredible things. The instructions on how to make proteins, contained in our DNA, are passed on by a molecule called messenger RNA (mRNA). mRNA interacts with a protein–RNA complex called a ribosome and transfer RNA (tRNA) to produce proteins, in a process called translation.
