sequence is this (see description)? Danio rerio yippee-like 3, mRNA (cDNA clone MGC:174412 IMAGE:7997041), complete cdsWhat is the common name for Danio rerio (you can Google to find out if you don’t immediately recognize the scientific name?) Why is this organism used in scientific research? Do some research to find out. Common name: ZebrafishWhy used in research: they have (1) genetic similarity to humans, (2) easier to house and care than others, (3) impactof any genetic mutation or drug treatment is easy to see, (4) lots of offspring, and (5) easier to induce genetic changes Click on the first Accession number on the list (BC154300.1).This brings up the full sequence of the gene. The nucleotide sequence is at the bottom of the page(Origin). Click on the CDS that is above the nucleotide sequence. Thiswill highlight the coding sequence (the part that is translated to a polypeptide chain) within the nucleotide sequence when you scroll back down the page. What are the last nine (9) nucleotides of the highlighted sequence? “T GGGACTGA”Look to the right in the gray pop up box (click details in the bottom left if you don’t see the gray box). The amino acid sequence translation is listed. Single-letter codes for the amino acids are used. What are the last 6 amino acids in this protein? “KDNGWD”What amino acids to these letters stand for (look it up in abiochemistry text if you don’t have them memorized already)
