    Once it was determined that codons consisted of three-nucleotide sequences, the specificity of each codon could be determined.

    Using a codon table, determine what poly U codes for.
    Repeat with polynucleotides of the other three bases.

    The answers are:
    UUU codes for Phe
    AAA codes for Lys
    GGG codes for Gly
    CCC codes for Pro


    Solution Summary

    This solution details the amino acids that are encoded by codons consisting of three identical nucleotides, and what protein would be encoded by a polynucleotide consisting of one nucleotide only, giving the four possibilities.
