Codon nonsense

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Codon, nonsense

a codon that is not assigned to an amino acid or to any stop signal. It was originally thought that nonsense codons were synonymous with terminator codons (codon, terminator) in that they signaled termination of a protein chain. Recent studies have found this not to be true.
