In a typical amino acid, what are the four items connected to the central carbon?
Where does translation take place?
The mRNA formed from the repeating tetranucleotide UUAC incorporates only
three amino acids, but the use of UAUC incorporates four amino acids. Why?
Predict the amino acid sequence produced during translation by the following
short theoretical mRNA sequences.
Note that the second sequence was formed from the first by a deletion of only
