33. A researcher identifies the nucleotide sequence AAC in a long strand of RNA inside a nucleus. In the genetic code, AAC codes for the amino acid asparagine. When that RNA becomes involved in protein synthesis, will asparagine necessarily appear in the protein? Explain.

    NEED HELP PLEASE!!!

    No, the RNA has not undergone RNA processing yet. The AAC may be part of an intron--a non-coding sequence of RNA that is removed from the strand before exiting the nucleus and being translated into a protein.
