Given below are the sequence of nucleotides in a particular mRNA and amino acids coded by it :
UUU AUG UUC GAG UUA GUG UAA
Phe-Met-Phe-Glu-Leu-Val
Write the properties of the genetic code that can be and that cannot be correlated from the above given data.


#2

a. The codon is a triple e.g., UUU, AUG etc. They form triplets.
b. One codon codes for only one amino acid, hence it is unambiguous and specific.
3. AUG has a dual function as it codes for methionine and also acts as the initiator codon.
4. UAA is the stop codon. It codes for valine.
