a monosaccharide; a part of DNA and RNA
ribosomes are responsible for synthesizing-protein-(they build protein chains) and as such, are any of the RNA rich cytoplasmic granules that are sites of protein synthesis. Ribosomes have two sub units with bridges between them. Every time a ribosome builds a protein chain, a series of precisely synchronized-steps must occur at points within the chromosome, which is an intricate communication system; ribosomes are made of both nucleic acids and proteins. A ribosome is a particle in a cell-(an RNA protein complex) that assembles proteins by organizing (how?)-amino acids into particular sequences determined by the nucleotide sequence of RNA
