Question
Hello,

Would you be able to help me with this question? And explain why? Thank you.

Using the Genetic Code, state the sequence of amino acids that will result from the following RNA sequence.

Begin: AUG-UUU-CAC-AGC-CCU-AUU-GGG-UCA-GCG-UGA :End

Answer
The amino acid sequence from your RNA sequence is:
Met F H S P I G S A Stop

The triplet codons in the RNA sequence each denote one amino acid. Thus AUG codes for Methionine or (Met). Met is the initiation codon in mammals. Other codons each code for an a.
a. while the last one UGA is a stop codon. Also UAA and UAG code for stop codon.
