What does GGU code for?
Accordingly, what does AAG code for?
The four bases make up the “letters” of the genetic code. The letters are combined in groups of three to form code “words,” called codons. Each codon stands for (encodes) one amino acid, unless it codes for a start or stop signal. For example CUG codes for leucine, AAG codes for lysine, and GGG codes for glycine.
One may also ask, what are the six MRNA codons for serine? For example, six codons specify leucine, serine, and arginine, and four codons specify glycine, valine, proline, threonine, and alanine.
Also question is, which amino acid does the codon GUA code for?
|Amino Acid||DNA Base Triplets||M-RNA Codons|
|asparagine||TTA, TTG||AAU, AAC|
|aspartate||CTA, CTG||GAU, GAC|
|cysteine||ACA, ACG||UGU, UGC|
|glutamate||CTT, CTC||GAA, GAG|
