Given below is the sequence of the mRNA ready for Translation"
5' - AUG CUA UAC CUC CUU UAU CUG UGA - 3'
a) what is the first codon technically known as and which amino acid does it code for?
b) how many amino acid residues will make the polypeptide chain corresponding to this amino acid? write the number of t-RNA molecules needed to translate the polypeptide chain?
c) write the sequence of the DNA strand that coded for the above mRNA
