1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Val-tRNA val is the tRNA that carries valine to the ribosome during translation. Which of the following sequences gives an appropriate anticodon for this tRNA? A. CAU B. AUC C. UAC D. GUG 2. Relevant equations There are four different codons for Valine: GUU, GUC, GUA, and GUG. 3. The attempt at a solution The answer is C, but I'm just wondering how to approach problems like this in the future. Since we're looking for the anticodon, and DNA is read 5'---> 3', we would have to flip all 4 codons for Val: UUG, CUG, AUG, GUG. Then would we follow complementary base pairing rules to get: AAC, GAC, UAC, CAC That way, we get the correct answer, but I'm just wondering if I have the correct method down or if somebody could help explain to me why this is the reason its done this way? Thank you!
