What is the start codon? What are the stop codons? Do any of them code for amino acids?

Summary Introduction

To explain: The start codon.

Introduction: The process in which information present on mRNA is converted into amino acids is known as translation. mRNA contains various regions such as start codon, and stop codon that guides the process of translation.

Explanation of Solution

The codon contains a group of three base pairs that specify a particular amino acid. The codon, which represents the beginning sequence of amino acid in mRNA, is known as the start codon...

Summary Introduction

To explain: The stop codon.

Introduction: The process in which information present on mRNA is converted into amino acids is known as translation. mRNA contains various regions such as start codon, and stop codon that guides the process of translation.

Summary Introduction

To determine: If start codon or stop codon codes for an amino acid.
