Biology BIO 184 Homework Assignment (10 pts) Answer the questions in the following spaces. Due in class on Wednesday, April 20. 1. Given a gene’s DNA code is: T A C T T T G A A C G T A C C T A T A C C G C G C A T A A A G G T A T C What is the code on the mRNA molecule after transcription? A U G A A A C U U G C A U G G A U A U G G C G C G U A U U U C C A U A G What is the sequence of amino acids in the protein? (see Table 3 and Power Point slides). Methionine (AUG) Lysine (AAA) Proline (CCU) Alanine (GCA) Tryptophan (UGG) Isoleucine (AUA) Tryptophan (UGG) Cylonine (CGC) Valine (GUA) Phenylalanine (UUU) Proline (CCA) Terminator codon* (UAG) What is the sequence of anticodons that will be brought in by tRNA during translation? 2. OK, now work backwards. If the sequence of tRNA anticodons is: UAC, GGG, CAU, UUG, CAC, UGC, ACG, GUU, UCG, CCC, CUG, AUC What was the mRNA strand they were translated from? What was the original DNA strand?
