The diagram shown below illustrates the kind of molecules involved in information flow in cells. This diagram shows two units of coded information ("AAG" on a DNA minus strand and a "CAU" codon on a complementary mRNA molecule). The light vertical lines are meant to help you keep corresponding coded information in alignment. Fill in each of the 26 blank boxes with one of the following symbols, so the information flow is shown correctly:
a. an abbreviation for a nucleotide (you don't need to include letter "d" to show 2'-deoxynucleotides).
b. the designation 3' or 5' to indicate the correct end of a molecule.
c. the designation "NH2" to indicate an amino-terminal end, and "COO" to indicate a carboxylate-terminal end of a molecule.
Use the table on the right as needed to translate the genetic code.
