    Q: How are amino acids combined to form a protein?
    A: This combination process is called peptide bond formation and occurs in the elongation phase of translation/protein synthesis. Peptide bond formation involves a transfer of the existing peptidyl group from peptidyl-tRNA in the P-site to the a-amino group of the incoming aminoacyl--tRNA in the A-site. In this way, synthesis of the protein proceeds from the N-terminus to the C-terminus.
    Translation process can be broken down ...
