Concept

Problem: An RNA molecule has the following sequence: 5'-AUGAUUCGCGAACUUGCCAAUGACUAA-3'Give the sequence of:A. The DNA of the corresponding gene. Give your answer in the 5' to 3' direction.B. The resulting protein when this RNA is translated. Use the single letter code.

FREE Expert Solution

The transcription process uses the coding DNA strand to create a complementary equivalent which will be the mRNA transcript. This polynucleotide is then transferred to the ribosomes for translation, which is the synthesis of a polypeptide equivalent to the message contained in the mRNA.
