Problem

RNAse is a protein that is present in our cells and it has 104 residues (amino acids). The cDNA for this protein has approximately ____ nucleotides.

A. ~104 nucleotides

B. ~312 nucleotides

C. ~930 nucleotides

D. less than 300 nucleotides

E. None of the above

Solution

Remember that proteins (regardless of type) are just products of the translation process. This process converts the nucleotide sequence of the mRNA to proteins composed of amino acids by following the genetic code.
