For the DNA base sequence GGG what is the mRNA codon? What is the tRNA codon that binds to the mRNA codon and what is the correct amino acid that is coded by the base sequence?

    So I'll answer this, but you might want to use what I say here to answer the rest. When translation is occurring, the pathway of information is DNA to the mRNA codon to tRNA. This tRNA has an anticodon on one end and an amino acid on the other. For DNA to RNA For RNA to RNA A binds to U A binds to U C binds to G C binds to G G binds to C G binds to C T binds to A U binds to A Using this, we can see that the DNA sequence of GGG will bind to the mRNA sequence of CCC. This mRNA sequence of CCC is known as the codon. It ill correspond to the tRNA anticodon of GGG. This tRNA will be attached to the amino acid, proline. This probably will be the last one of these questions I answer, unless you have a specific question. I want to help, but in this case it might be better if you use what is here to try to answer the others yourself. I will check your answers though, if you post what you get.

    Thanks. But I don't really have time to figure these out myself and if I do I'll probable get them wrong.
