Anticodon

Definition

noun, plural: anticodons

A sequence of three adjacent nucleotides located on one end of transfer RNA. It bounds to the complementary coding triplet of nucleotides in messenger RNA during translation phase of protein synthesis.


Supplement

For example the anticodon for Glycine is CCC that binds to the codon (which is GGG) of mRNA.

Molecular gene (genome) concept scientifically untenable

... determined DNA sequence or DNA commanded protein evolution. Many such dilemmas remain in molecular evolution. The origin of bias in codon and anticodon frequencies continues to elude researchers [14]. How can these be explained? j) There are many kinds of DNA repairs. Rosenfeld gives a detailed ...

Wobble hypothesis.How does met & trp not get mis translated?

... recognize the same codon. Tryptophan is coded only by UGG and methionine is coded only by AUG. So Trp codon is recognized by the tRNA with the anticodon ACC and Met codon is recognized by the tRNA with the anticodon UAC. There is no any tRNA with the anticodon ACU. As an example for Wobble ...

Wobble hypothesis.How does met & trp not get mis translated?

I understand the principle of the wobble hypothesis, that the last base pair between a mRNA codon and a tRNA anticodon is not as stringent as the DNA base pairing rules. However the rules as they were explained to me do not compensate for met & trp. If the tryptophan codon ...
