Question

If a code on a dna molecule for a specific amino acid is cta, what would be the messenger rna codon? the transfer rna anticodon?

Answer


mRNA codon = GAU 
anticodon = CUA  
RNA, like DNA has 4 bases. 3 of them are the same as in DNA which are adenine, guanine, and cytosine. The 4th base is uracil instead of thymine as in DNA. So the CTA codon will pair with GAU. So the nRNA codon is GAU and the anticodon is CUA. As a side note, the amino acid that would be associated with this set of codons would be aspartate.
