Molecular Genetics, Assignment for Chapter 2 A table showing all of the 64 codons and the amino acid for which they code can be found in your book. Below is a Prokaryotic DNA sequence with the corresponding protein sequence for each of the three forward reading frames. Note that in this case, Z, represents one of the three translational termination codons. In prokaryotes, transcription starts at promoters that are most closely related to a –10 region of TATAAT and a compatable –35 region. Transcription terminates at stem-loop structures that can form in inverted repeat regions. Translation starts at AUG codons corresponding to the amino acid M. Adjacent to the starting AUG, 8-10 bases upstream (i.e., to the left), you will find a ribosomal binding site AGGAGG which is complementary to the 3’ end of
