So can one base code for one amino acid ex. Can adenosine (the base) code for tryprophan (an amino acid)?
Can two bases?
What about three?
Meet tRNA … “the decoder”
mRNA nucleotides are translated in groups of 3 called codons.
Each codon codes for a specific amino acid. 20 different amino acids can be used in different combinations to form a protein.
