Unformatted text preview: Problem Set 7 1. The following sequence of nucleotide pairs correspond to the 5' end (the "beginning") of the budhead gene from Hydra vulgaris and codes for 9 amino acids of the budhead protein. Strand A '-ATTATTAGGTATAACCGTGTCCATCATGTTGTT- ' ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Strand B '-TAATAATCCATATTGGCACAGGTAGTACAACAA- ' a. Identify the start codon (circle it on the appropriate strand). b. Indicate the 5' and 3' ends on both strands. c. Which strand is the template strand for transcription? A B (Circle one) d. Write the sequence (5' to 3') of the partial mRNA produced by the budhead sequence above. e. Write the primary structure of the N-terminus of the budhead protein based on the mRNA above. f. Write the sequence (5' to 3') of the tRNAs that could bind to codons 2, 3 and 4 of the mRNA. e1. 5'- ___ ___ ___-3' e2. 5'- ___ ___ ___-3' e3. 5'- ___ ___ ___-3' g. What is the minimum number of tRNAs that would have been involved in the synthesis of this g....
