after 30 seconds of translation you treat a cell with a chemical that blocks the P site on the ribosome so that it does not function anymore. describe what was happening prior to the treatment of the ribosome, and what would happen after the treatment of the ribosome. defend your answer?
i know that:
-translation is the process by which a protein is assembled from info contained in mRNA
-translation takes place on ribosomes
-and ribosomes attach near the 5' end of an mRNA strand where it then moves toward the 3' end while translating codons as it goes.
