Homework Help: Determining mutated, mRNA, Amino Acid sequence

  1. Apr 14, 2010 #1
    I was wondering if I did something wrong with the deletion, it seems pretty self explanatory but I just want to make sure I did this right. The filled in answers are in bold And I'm completely lost with the Amino Acid sequence, my TA did this in class and I still don't get it.


    Sequence of DNA template: 3'- TAC TGG CCG TTA GTT GAT ATA ACT-5'
    Nucleotide number --> 1__________________________________23

    Mutant 2: A one-nucleotide deletion at nucleotide 7

    Original sequence: 3'-TAC TGG CCG TTA GRR GAT ATA ACT-5'

    Mutated Sequence: TAC TGG CG TTA GRR GAT ATA ACT

    mRNA Sequence: AUG ACC GC AAU CAA CUA UAU UGA

    Amino Acid Sequence: met thr ? ser gln lev tyr
