What has an anticodon region?

Anticodons are a sequence of three adjacent nucleotides located on one end of transfer RNA. It bounds to the complementary coding triplet of nucleotides in messenger RNA durin (MORE)

What is the difference between codon and anticodon?

A codon is the triplet sequence in the messenger RNA (mRNA) transcript which specifies a corresponding amino acid (or a start or stop command). An anticodon is the correspondi (MORE)

Explain the process of translation and tRNA anticodons?

In short, translation is the process of ribosomes reading mRNA and using tRNA to gather the amino acids specified by the mRNA. The tRNA anticodons are complementary to the cod (MORE)

How does the anticodon function?

Anticodon on the tRNA base- pair with the codon on the mRNA and catalyses the elongation of the polypeptide chain in translation. Besides that, anticodon are specific and the (MORE)

Where do anticodon exist?

  During protein synthesis, where DNA is "read" to produce a given protein (which is just a strand of amino acids), a codon is a three nucleotide sequence on mRNA that cod (MORE)
