Primary Structure

Post by mistique » Sat Mar 03, 2007 7:24 am

Hey everyone out there,
I am stuck on a question, that i really need help with. Does anyone know the answer to this question?:

"A piece of RNA has the base sequence:

U-A-C-G-A-U-U-C-G-A-A-C-A-U-G

a) Are you able to determine the kind of RNA this molecule is without any further information?

b) If you were told this piece of RNA carries the code for 5 amino acids, would you change your answer to part a? If so, what would your explanation be for change?"

Thanks a lot :)
