2/6/09 1 translation Robert Holley Professor of Biochemistry at Cornell when he sequenced tRNA. Nobel Prize in 1968. tRNA TGG is the sequence on the non-template strand of the DNA that codes for serine. What is the sequence of the anticodon of the tRNA? (Assume there is only 1 tRNA for serine.) A. UGG B. TGG C. UCC D. ACC E. Can’t tell TGG is the sequence on the non-template strand of the DNA that codes for serine. What is the sequence of the anticodon of the tRNA? (Assume there is only 1 tRNA for serine.) A. UGG B. TGG C. UCC D. ACC * E. Can’t tell TGG non-template ACC template UGG mRNA ACC anticodon The genetic code (by convention read as RNA) Why is the genetic code almost universal? The protein-coding segment is often called the “open reading frame” (ORF) It is critical to start the ORF at exactly the right nucleotide Mutations template strand sickle-cell disease
