(b)Deoxy nucleosides have hydrogens in place of hydroxyl groups at the positions indicated withboldface.27.40All the bases in the synthetic messenger RNA prepared by Nirenberg were U; therefore, the codonis UUU. By referring to the codons in Table 27.4, we see that the UUU codes for phenylalanine.A polypeptide in which all the amino acid residues were phenylalanine was isolated in Nirenberg’sexperiment.SELF-TESTPART AA-1.Give the structure of the reactant, reagent, or product omitted from each of the following:A-2.Give the structure of the derivative that would be obtained by treatment of Phe-Ala withSanger’s reagent followed by hydrolysis.
