DNA to RNA to Protein ---
Now you can consider the machinery that the firefly uses to generate the light that it produces. Press the play button and watch the animation as the cell transcribes its DNA to generate mRNA coding for the luciferase gene product. Watch as this mRNA travels to the cytoplasm and is translated. Then watch as the light goes on! Below the animation is a series of cartoons that depict these processes in a step-by-step fashion — just in case the animation will not run for you.
