5' CCC ATG CCC 3' -- coding strand (codes the same as the mRNA) 3' GGG TAC GGG 5'-- template strand (that the polymerase copies) 5" CCC AUG CCC 3' --- mRNA copied from the template strand ---it's the same as the coding strand except U you could also have the coding strand on the bottom (the A is 5' of the T, which is 5' of G) 5' GGG CAT GGG 3'-- template strand that the polymerase would copy 3' CCC GTA CCC 5" -- coding strand 3' CCC GUA CCC 5" ---would be the mRNA

Unformatted text preview: but we (and the ribosome) read it 5' CCC AUG CCC 3" try it yourself a) 5 TTTATGCGC 3 make the template strand and use that to make the mRNA where does the protein start? b) 3 GCGGTAATA 5 make the template strand and use that to make the mRNA where does the protein start? Use these to generate the coding and template strands and give the mRNA. Where do the proteins start? c) 5 TTCCATCAG 3 d) 3 ACAGTACTC 5 e) 5 TACGGGCAT3...
