Explain the reason for the situation in which a eukaryotic cell gene occupying a DNA region of 2,400 base pairs encodes a polypeptide of 180 amino acid residues.
To encode 180 amino acid residues, 540 nucleotides (180 triplets) of the template DNA chain are sufficient. Plus the same amount – the coding chain. Total – 1080 nucleotides or 540 base pairs.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
