The mRNA sequence that is complementary to the sequence ATC on DNA is UAG. UAG is a codon that stops protein synthesis.

MRNA sequence that is complementary by sequence ATC on DNA would be?

In the cases of MRNA and DNA there are differences in the base pairs that make up the two compounds. In a situation in which Adenosine, Thymine, and Cytosine would need to be paired between DNA and RNA Guanine would be used on the RNA side.

What are the major steps of mRNA transcription?

mRNA is produced based on the DNA code. If the original (correct) sequence is AGC, then the correct mRNA sequence should be UCG.However, the mutated DNA sequence (ATC) now codes for the mRNA sequence UAG. So, the incorrect DNA sequence is spread through to create an incorrect mRNA sequence.

Why can't the mRNA base sequence ATC be a codon?

RNA uses Uracil (U) in place of Thymine (T). Thymine is exclusive to DNA.

If the DNA sequence is GAT what is the sequence of the complementary strand of DNA?

If reading the DNA in the same direction ie 5' to 3' it would be ATC, however when bound to the complement it would sit in the reverse order - 3' to 5' and would read CTA.

What would be the sequence on the complementary strand of DNA?

In DNA, A (adenine) binds to T (thymine), C (cysteine) binds to G (guanine). For a complementary RNA strand, A binds to U (uracil). For example, the complementary DNA strand for AAT-GCG-TAG would be TTA-CGC-ATC. The complementary RNA strand would be UUA-CGC-AUC.

In DNA, A binds with T and C binds with G. Therefore the complementary strand for ATC-TCG would be TAG-AGC.

Are the DNA molecule parallel or antiparrallel?

The DNA molecule is anti-parallel. This is because the two strands are the opposite of one another, such that if one strand has the base sequence ATC, the opposite strand would have the base sequence TAG.

Is one strand of DNA that is complementary to the other strand opposite or matching?

I don't know what you mean by complementary, so I'll use an example. If a section of one strand of DNA is ATC GGA TAC ACC, then the other will be (in the same direction) TAG CCT ATG TGG If you are looking for the messenger RNA code, change all the Ts to Us in the second code of my answer. Hope this helps!

What molecule makes a mirror copy of DNA?

There is not really such a thing as a mirror image of DNA in nature. DNA polymerase may be the "molecule" that you are thinking of, it is an enzyme that replicates DNA. When the polymerase makes a new strand of DNA, it uses an existing strand of DNA as a template. The new strand of DNA is not in fact a mirror image of the template strand, but it is the closest thing possible. The new strand is called a complementary strand, not a mirror image.Existing DNA (template for polymerase): ATC TGA CCG GAC TAG GGTNew strand (made by polymerase): TAG ACT GGC CTG ATC CCAAlternatively, by mirror image of DNA you may be thinking of RNA, a ribonucleotide that is made by RNA polymerase. The process is similar to that described above, but the new complementary strand is made out of ribonucleic acid rather than deoxyribonucleic acid.

What would the complementary strands for dna a-t-c-g-c-t-g-a-t-g-a-c-g-a-c-t?

A binds to T, C binds to G. Therefore the complementary strand of ATC-GCT-GAT-GAC-GACT would be TAG-CGA-CTA-CTG-CTGA.

How do tRNA and mRNA differ in their location within the cell and chemical composition?

Chemically tRNA and mRNA differ in the base adenine and thymine. In a tRNA strand, instead of having the complementary base pairs of A-T,the matching base pair to the Thymine would be replaced by uracil (u). Consider the following mRNA strand: 5' --- GCG CCC ATC AAA-- 3' 3' --- CGC GGG TAG TTT- 3' For the 3' to 5' direction, the tRNA strand would read: 3' --- CGC GGG UAG UUU-- 3' The thymine base pair is replaced by uracil. Locate of the mRNA and the tRNA strand differ because they are involved in different cell functions. mRNA is involved in DNA amplification and duplication and is found in the nucleus from where it is finally transfered to the cytoplasm after post translational modification. Where as, tRNA is involved in protein synthesis and IS found in the cytoplasm (originally formed in the nucleus) along with ribosome /newzhyphenz protein complexes.

What is the mrna strand ggctatatcctgcgctatacgcta?

First, separate the letters into codons so they are easier to read: ggc tat atc ctg cgc tat acg cta Then, convert them into mrna, replacing the g's with c's, the c's with g's, the t's with a's, and the a's with u's. Unlike DNA, RNA doesn't contain t, but it can still translate t's. ccg aua uag gac gcg aua ugc gau
