"A polysome is like a cafeteria line, in which patrons follow one another, adding items to their trays. At any moment, the person at the start has a little food (a newly initiated protein); the person at the end has a complete meal (a completed protein). However, in the polysome cafeteria, everyone gets the same meal: Many copies of the same protein are made from a single mRNA."
