For the DNA Base Sequence AAT, what is the matching mRNA Codon? Also, what is the correct tRNA Codon that binds to the mRNA Codon? And what is the correct amino acid that is coded by the base sequence?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So if UUA is the mRNA, then what is the tRNA Anticodon?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For the DNA Base Sequence AAT, what is the matching mRNA Codon? Also, what is the correct tRNA Codon that binds to the mRNA Codon? And what is the correct amino acid that is coded by the base sequence? So, It's been a while since I've learned this in Biology, but here is what I'm pretty sure it true. The DNA Base sequence AAT will match with UUA on the mRNA strand. This is because RNA has uracil instead of thymine. Once you have the mRNA codon, the tRNA anticodon that matches with the UUA is AAU. the tRNA sequence of AAU codes for asparagine. I'm almost positive that this is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright, so just to be sure: the mRNA codon is UUA; the tRNA is AAU; and the amino acid is asparagine?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, and that seems to make sense with the link that Karth posted too, which makes me much more confident.
