FREE Expert Solution

The translation process is the synthesis of the polypeptide equivalent of the information contained in the mRNA sequence. this mRNA is divided into codons, which are three base sequences that encode amino acids or processing instructions. These instructions may signal the start or stop of the translation process: the start codon, which also determines the reading frame, and one of the three possible stop codons. The start codon sequence is AUG, while the stop codons are UAG, UGA, and UAA.
