Are STOP codons involved in both TRANSCRIPTION & TRANSLATION

1) no, terminator is something different than STOP codon. STOP codon is 3-base long and is involved in translation only, terminator is longer and is involved in transcription ...

Are STOP codons involved in both TRANSCRIPTION & TRANSLATION

1)Ok, I am really confused about this. Is a "stop codon" used in both transcription and translation. I have two textbooks ... of the DNA strand ends at another special nucleotide sequence called a terminator, which specifies the end of the gene." I think Terminator is ...
