Wobble

wobble

In molecular biology, unorthodox pairing between the base at the 5' end of an anticodon and the base that pairs with it (in the 3'-position of the codon); thus, the anticodon 3'-UCU-5' may pair with 5'-AGA-3' (normal or Watson-crick pairing) or with 5'-AGG-3' (wobble). Wobble pairings can occur between the unusual base hypoxanthine and adenine, uracil, or cytosine, between uracil and guanine, and between guanine and uracil, when in the 5'-position of an anticodon.

See: wobble base.

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

... Watson-Crick base pairing, then 61 different tRNA molecules would be required. But some tRNA molecules can recognize more than one codon due to Wobble base pairing and thus the number of tRNA molecules found in a cell is less than 61. This is the advantage of Wobble base pairing. Hence, there ...

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 ...

... to 'lose FAT'. Finally, exercise, exercise, exercise, and fat will convert to muscle that weighs more, but looks a whole lot better (ie, doesn't wobble and flab...) Good luck! (PS - allow yourself treat days from time to time - non-stop deprivation leads to cracking!)

Replacing the genetic material

@JackBean but i've read that the anticodons of some tRNAs can pair with more than one codon due to a phenomenon , i guess it's called "Wobble base pair" @kolean it reads form where the start codon is @Darby please , can you explain more ?
