  • Q10
    What happens when the ribosome reaches a stop codon?
    The ribosome continues the process of translation until it reaches the end of the mRNA sequence.
    The ribosome destroys the mRNA strand.
    The ribosome detaches from the mRNA strand.
    The ribosome adds several more amino acids to the sequence.
