Determine tRNA anticodon sequences from mRNA sequences.

What is the sequence of tRNA anticodons that match the mRNA?

mRNA #1: AUG GCC UAC GGU CUA GUU UAG
Anticodons for mRNA #1: ______________________________________

mRNA #2 AUG CCC CCG CAU UGG UGU UGA
Anticodons for mRNA #2: ______________________________________

mRNA #3: AUG GAC AAU UCG AUG UUU UAA
Anticodons for mRNA #3: ______________________________________

Solution Preview

Transfer RNA, or tRNA, is RNA copied from and mRNA strand. tRNA anticodons are complimentary and reverse of a mRNA codon. tRNA, like mRNA, uses Adenine (A), Guanine (G), Cytosine (C), and Uracil (U) as nucleotides. tRNA is important form ...
