BS99 – Extra Credit Quiz for Monday Morning Mark true or false for the following questions. Each question is worth two points so mark it twice! 1-2. Some amino acids are coded for by as many as six different codons. 3-4. The mRNA is translated in the 3’ to 5’ direction. 5-6. If codons were read in an overlapping fashion, a single point mutation could change the identity of more than one amino acid in the peptide. 7-8. Nirenberg added polynucleotides (mRNAs) to his cell free translation experiments to determine which codons directed the incorporation of which amino acids. 9-10. Because of wobble, most organisms will have less amino acyl tRNA genes than the 61 codons needing to be recognized. AABBAAAAAA
