The hormone oxytocin has a protein nature. In the process of translation of its molecule, 9 t-RNA molecules participated. Determine the number of amino acids that make up the synthesized protein, as well as the number of triplets and nucleotides that this protein encodes. Explain the answer.
1. One t-RNA transports one amino acid, hence 9 t-RNA.
2. The number of DNA triplets is 9, since one triplet encodes one amino acid.
3. The number of nucleotides is 27, since the code is triplet (9×3).
