Bacterial cells synthesize proteins in the same manner as mammalian cells do. Both cells start synthesis by DNA polymerase transcribing double-stranded DNA into single-stranded messenger RNA (mRNA). The resulting transcript is then translated by ribosomes, another form of RNA into amino acids, the subunits of...
