1

What happens in Eukaryotes after translation?

Proteins often need to be altered before they can become fully functional.
This is called post-translational modification.

2

What are modifications carried out by?

Other enzymes and they include chain cutting, adding methyl or phosphate groups to amino acids, adding sugars or lipids.
