What is codon?

A codon specifies a certain amino acid that makes up the protein. A codon is a sequence of three DNA or RNA nucleotides that corresponds with a specific amino acid or stop sig (MORE)

Codon and anticodon?

A codon is a three-base sequence (three nitrogen bases in a row) on mRNA. It calls for a specific amino acid to be brought to the growing polypeptide.      An anticod (MORE)

Where do you find a codon?

Codon is found on the messenger RNA(m RNA).   During translation, the codons on the m RNA are read by the ribosome and amino acid corresponding to the codon is added. when (MORE)

What are start codon and stop codons?

The start codon on a messenger RNA strand marks the start point of translation from RNA to protein. It is nearly invariably AUG (which translates to the amino acid methionine) (MORE)

What are codons and anticodons?

Codon = 3 amino acid sequence found on mRNA.  Anti codon = 3 amino acid sequence found on tRNA. The codons are for the traslation of mRNa to an amino acid sequence by using r (MORE)

What is the purpose of a codon?

Codons provide a code for a specific amino acid. These are essential for the creation of polypeptides/proteins.

What is codone?

Codone is a pain relief drug that is often used for back pain. This  type of pain medication is used when someone needs long term  relief.

Example of codon?

Codon is a group of three bases on a DNA molecule, each determining  the identity of one amino acid in proteins made by a cell. An  example of a codon is the mRNA sequence o (MORE)

What is an anti codon?

The anticodon is a sequence of the tRNA that compliments the  matching t base pairs on the mRNA. The anticodon is an amino acid  specific to the tRNA molecule.
