  • Growing polypeptide chain
    • The outgoing tRNA leaves the E site
      • The tRNA after the exiting tRNA enters the P site on the ribosome
        • The newly bound tRNA binds to the A site
          • The amino acid is added onto the chain
            • The large subunit moves across to the right
              • This transfers the tRNA in the P site to the E site
                • The tRNA in the A site is then in the P site
                  • The small subunit then moves across as well, reforming the whole ribosome
