Problem

Below is an uncompleted table of a segment of the transcribed region of a gene in a prokaryote. Fill in the empty slots of the table with the appropriate nucleotide/amino acid based on the information provided.

Solution

In this problem, the concepts of base-pairing, transcription, and translation would all be useful to arrive with the correct answer. Remember that for the double-stranded DNA, A pairs with T and G pairs with C. In transcription, the template strand (3' to 5') will be used to create a complementary RNA copy. And in the translation process, the genetic code can be used as guide as to which amino acids are equivalent to the given three base sequences (i.e codons).
