Which growth hormone protein will be produced in the bacterial cell?A.A bacterial growth hormone protein.B.A human growth hormone protein.C.A hybrid protein that’s part human and part bacterial.The production of a human protein in a bacterium can occur because:A.Humans and bacteria use exactly the same codons to specify each amino acid.B.Humans and bacteria both use almostthe same codons to specify amino acids.C.Humans and bacteria use different codons, but there is enough similarity that the protein made by bacteria still works.Where does translation begin on the mRNA?A.Where ever there is an AUG in the mRNAB.At a ribozyme within the RibosomeC.At a section of DNA called the promoterD.At a particular AUG in the mRNA
