Given the following tRNA anticodon sequence, derive the mRNA and the DNA template strand. Also, write out the amino acid sequence of the protein encoded by this message.

tRNA: UAC UCU CGA GGC

mRNA:

protein:

How many hydrogen bonds would be present in the DNA segment?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The mRNA, DNA template and the amino acid sequence of the protein from given tRNA anticocon sequence.

Introduction: DNA is converted into mRNA by the process called transcription. tRNA, and rRNA helps in production of amino acids from mRNA in a process called translation. The chain of amino acids produced during translation process can be polypeptide, or a functional protein.

Explanation of Solution

The given tRNA anticodon sequence is as follow:

tRNA: UAC|UCU|CGA|GGC

tRNA anticodon sequence is the complementary sequence of mRNA codon sequence. Therefore, the mRNA codon sequence is as follow:

mRNA: AUG|AGA|GCU|CCG

A specific mRNA codon sequence encodes a specific amino acid...

Summary Introduction

To determine: The number of hydrogen bonds that would be present in the given DNA segment.

Introduction: A DNA contains two-nucleotide chains that are attached with each other with the help of hydrogen bond. mRNA reads
