I-RNA consists of 156 nucleotides. Determine the number of amino acids included in the protein encoded by it, the number of t-RNA molecules involved in the biosynthesis of this protein, and the number of triplets in the gene encoding the primary structure of the protein. Explain the results
1. The protein contains 52 amino acids, because one amino acid encodes one triplet (156: 3).
2. T-RNA transports one amino acid to the site of protein synthesis, therefore, a total of 52 t-RNAs are involved in the synthesis.
3. In the gene, the primary structure of the protein is encoded by 52 triplets, since each amino acid is encoded by one triplet
