Proteins are synthesised at the ribosomes i believe, messenger RNA attach to ribosomes on the endoplasmic reticulum and tRNA bring the amino acids to make the polyptides.

i agree they are synthesised by mRNA in teh ribosomes

mRNA in the ribosome???
I thought there were rRNA in the ribosome.... :)

It's a funny way of saying, but i would regard it as correct, since the mRNA kinda crosses the ribosome in a protein synthesis

But not found in the structure.

No, not in the structure of the ribosome, but you have to understand a ribosome is not a whole organelle. A ribosom doesn't exist without a mRNA attached. If there is no mRNA, there are just 2 isolated subunits.
