What is coded for by DNA and made of amino acids?
Proteins are made of smaller units called amino acids. The bases on DNA are a code for a specific amino acid. The mRNA will come over and read the DNA strand. Then it will go to the ribosome where rRNA will match up with complementary base pairs to the mRNA. The rRNA brought over holds the protein the DNA coded for. Then, the long strand of amino acids is brought over to this jar like…
The sequence of a gene's DNA leads to the synthesis of an RNA molecule. The RNA is the instruction manual for a Ribosome to make a specific amino acid sequence. When the amino acids are put together, the protein is made. So from this process, you can see that a protein's structure depends on the DNA code.
The monomers in a polypeptide are the amino acids. The sequence of amino acids in a polypeptide (or protein) is called the primary structure. It is the primary structure of proteins which is coded for by the DNA in the genes: the sequence of bases in the DNA is a code for the sequence of amino acids in a protein (or polypeptide).

Depends how you mean the question. If the question is "Is protein composed of DNA?" The answer is no, Protein is made of amino acids linked with peptide bonds. If the question is "Does DNA code for Proteins?" The answer is yes, DNA is transcribed into mRNA which is then translated to a sequence of amino acids via tRNA and ribosomes.
Proteins determine how a gene is expressed. Proteins are composed of amino acids that are synthesized (put together) by RNA, and RNA is made from DNA. DNA is what you inherit from your parents--very basically, your genes are sections of DNA that code for certain proteins (that are composed of amino acids).
How many amino acids would be in a protein that is coded by a DNA strand ninety-nine nucleotides long?
DNA contains the code for synthesizing proteins. DNA transcribes itself into MRNA (memory RNA), which then leaves the nucleus and translates into TRNA (Transfer RNA) which goes around the cell to retrive the amino acids that were coded into the DNA. It comes back to the MRNA which is now attached to a ribosome and proteins are created.
DNA is encoded through certain molecules Adenine "A", Thymine "T", Guanine "G", and Cytosine "C", the "code" of DNA. "A" is always bonded with "T", and "G" with "C". During Protein Syntheses, an enzyme will create an RNA molecule from the DNA molecule, which will be used to link the amino acids that make up proteins. there are a number of amino acids, and each one has a specific 3 letter code from the encoded…
