The Protein Synthesis Kit is an accessible, interactive model that is designed for people who are blind or have low vision. This kit adds to the molecular biology concepts introduced by the DNA-RNA Kit. The Protein Synthesis Kit allows students to decode a messenger RNA nucleotide and create transfer RNA with the correct amino acid sequence. The kit includes jigsaw puzzle-like pieces representing transfer RNA nucleotides, stop and start subunits, all twenty amino acids, and the APH Genetic Code Large Print Braille. The nucleotide subunits have color, large print, braille, and tactile indicators for the sugar and base (A, C, G, and U) components of the transfer RNA nucleotides. The amino acids are identified by shape, braille, and large print. Start and stop subunits are identified by shape, tactile indicators, large print, and braille.

 

Inside the kit:

  • 64 transfer RNA subunits
  • 6 Stop Release factor subunits
  • 4 Start Methionine subunits
  • Two sets of all 20 amino acids
  • APH Genetic Code Large Print Braille
  • Large print guidebook Storage/carry-box, large enough to hold this kit and the DNA-RNA Kit
  • Accessible HTML and BRF versions of the guidebook are available for download through the APH website
