D. ACA codon codes for threonine
The genetic code has 64 triplets of nucleotides, each one is called codon. Each codon except three of them, encodes for one of the 20 amino acids used in the process of synthesis of proteins
ACA, ACG, ACC and ACU are the only codons of the genetic code able to code for threonine. The codon UCG codes for serine, the codon UGU codes for cysteine and the code CGA codes for arginine
The set of rule used by living cells to translate or interpret information encoded within genetic materials into protein is known as genetic code. The process of translation can only be accomplished or achieved by the ribosome by linking the amino acids accordingly as specified by mRNA. However, codons code for amino acid glutamate is GAA, GAG.
A. Codes for serine
B. Codes for cysteine
C. Codes for arginine
D. Codes for threonine
Threonine has the following data:
It is an amino acid with polar property.
It has a one letter code: T
It has a three letter code: Thr
Its possible codons: ACA, ACC, ACG, ACT
ACS is the codons code for threonine.
The abbreviation of threonine is thr or T.
Here are some of its other codon codes:
It is an amino acid.
