Lets say that the cell wants to make a particular protein. Transcription of the appropriate gene is done and the mRNA is made. mRNA attaches to the ribosome and the translation is initiated in a "normal" way.
What exactly would happen if an amino acid required in the protein is absent ? I know that the protein would not be manufactured properly but I want to exactly know what would happen to the ribosome and the mRNA. Are they destroyed? Are they simply separated? Who regulates this?
