Write the anticodon(s) for the following amino acids:

  1. a. met
  2. b. trp
  3. c. ser
  4. d. leu

a.

Summary Introduction

To determine: The anticodon for the met (methionine) amino acid.

Introduction: The codon is defined as a sequence of three RNA or DNA bases, which correspond with a specific amino acid. The codon is located on mRNA molecule; whereas, anticodon is located in tRNA molecule.

Explanation of Solution

The codon that codes for methionine is AUG.

The anticodon contains complementary base pairs for a codon that codes for an amino ac...

b.

Summary Introduction

To explain: The anticodon for trp (tryptophan) amino acid.

Introduction: The codon is defined as a sequence of three RNA or DNA bases, which correspond with a specific amino acid. The codon is located on mRNA molecule; whereas, anticodon is located in tRNA molecule.

c.

Summary Introduction

To explain: The anticodon for ser (serine) amino acid.

Introduction: The codon is defined as a sequence of three RNA or DNA bases, which correspond with a specific amino acid. The codon is located on mRNA molecule; whereas, anticodon is located in tRNA molecule.

d.

Summary Introduction

To explain: The anticodon for leu (leucine) amino acid

Introduction: The codon is defined as a sequence of three RNA or DNA bases, which correspond with a specific amino acid. The codon is located on mRNA molecule; whereas, anticodon is located in tRNA molecule.
