During translation, amino acids continue to be added to a growing polypeptide chain until termination, which occurs when
the ribosome hits a terminator sequence on the DNA.
all of the charged tRNAs have been depleted.
the polypeptide is long enough.
the ribosome encounters a codon for which there is no tRNA carrying the complementary anticodon.
the ribosome runs off of the end of the messenger (mRNA) molecule.
