Unformatted text preview: 10.What does it mean to say that the universal genetic code is degenerate? What is a synonymous codon? 11.If the anticodon of a tRNA is 5 IAC 3, what are all the possible mRNA codons that can be recognized? (make sure to indicate 5 and 3 ends of codons). Note: it may help to draw a picture. Which amino acid(s) do these codons code for? 12.If the mRNA codon is 5 CAU 3, what are all the possible anticodons that can be recognized? (make sure to indicate 5 and 3 ends). Note: it may help to draw a picture. 13.If a cell has fewer than 61 tRNAs, how are all the codons translated? 14.List the 3 stages of translation and the factors involved in each. 15.Name the three tRNA sites within a ribosome and indicate what process occurs at each site....
