Translation. Chapter 9. Overview. Occurs on ribosomes-large aggregates of rRNA and protein tRNA acts as amino acid carriers Prokaryotes—occurs simultaneously with transcription and mRNA degradation Eukaryotes—occurs in cytoplasm mRNA translated 5’ 3’ Protein synthesis aminocarboxy.
This UCA codon was read by the
tRNA with a UGA anticodon
But if this UCA was UCG, it would still have been read by the tRNA with a UGA anticodon
