    What signals the DNA as to which or what protein to produce ?
    Is there a particular pool of amino acids in the cytoplasm

    RNA (in all its sorts tRNA, mRNA, RNAP) codes portions of genes by translating their bases in order. An enzyme accesses a gene by breaking the bonds between nucleotide base pairs at the center of the DNA molecule. The enzyme then matches complementary nucleotide bases to the base sequence of the gene, forming a single strand of RNA in the process. Uracil matches to adenine, guanine matches to cytosine, cytosine matches to guanine, and tyrosine matches to adenine. The process by which Genes are targeted to create specific proteins is automated by the enzymes that target them — think of your DNA as a book, and the ribosome a codex that can read and interpret it.

    Here’s some information that might answer any questions you have in a way that is more friendly to you. I haven’t done much in terms of cell biology since my first and second years of university:
