Base pairing

Base pairing

(Science: molecular biology) The specific hydrogen bonding between purines and pyrimidines in double stranded nucleic acids.

in dna the pairs are adenine and thymine and guanine and cytosine, while in rna they are adenine and uracil and guanine and cytosine.

base pairing leads to the formation of a dna double helix from two complementary single strands.

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 & ...
