Each codon is a nucleotide triplet and corresponds to an amino acid. A codon determines which amino acid should be added to the growing peptide chain during the process of translation.

How many codons are incolved ina polypeoptide that has 5 amino acids?

Simple answer FIVE. Each codon is made up of links. There are three links to the codon. Each codon codes for a single amino acid. A polypeptide is a string of amino acids. The term is usually used for smaller polypeptide chains. Larger chains are usually referred to as proteins although not all proteins are simply polypeptides. Heomoglobin, for example, contains a heme group.


What is the chemical found in the nucleus that controls the production of protein?

The start codon, is a specific triplet of chemicals which control where the protein production process begins.


Which amino acids have only one codon?

There are two different amino acids that only have one codon. Methionine thatâ??s DNA codon is ATG and Tryptophan thatâ??s DNA codon is TGG.


Which amino acid is represented by the codon UUU?

The amino acid Proline. In the Codon Dictionary, Proline is the best example of a "wobble base". Each codon that begins with CC- [CCU, CCC, CCA, & CCG] codes for Proline.


What identifies the specific amino acid for tRNA?

The messenger RNA strand. When the tRNA inserts itself between the two portions of the ribosome attached to the mRNA strand, the specific tRNA depends on the 3 nitrogen bases on the mRNA (the codon) that are about to be read. The tRNA that arrives has a corresponding "anticodon" to go with the codon on the mRNA. For example, if the nitrogen bases on the mRNA strand are adenine, guanine, and cytocine the tRNA will have an anticodon of uracil, cytocine and guanine. The tRNA that has the corresponding anticodon to the codon on the mRNA will bring with it a specific amino acid but it is the codon on the mRNA that ultimately decided which amino acid is next in line.

The tRNA has the anticodon and mRNA has the codon.


How many amino acids make a codon?

One codon specifies a specific amino acid. However, more than one codon can code for the same amino acid. For example, the codon GUU codes for the specific amino acid valine; and the codons GUC, GUA, and GUG also code for valine.


What are the amino acids on the codon table?

Each codon codes for only one amino acid, or a codon is a start or stop codon, but no codon codes for more than one amino acid.


What is the nucleiotide sequence in mRNA that determines a specific amino acid?

Why is UAG codon called amber codon?

The UAG codon is a special kind of codon called a stop codon. There are three types of stop codons: amber, ochre, and opal. UAG is an mRNA codon that is specific for the amber stop codon. The amber codon was named after Harris Bernstein, then a Caltech graduate student, whose last name means "amber" in German. The related link points to an article that discusses the history a bit more.
