Example Question #1 : Rna Structure And Function
In RNA, three nucleotide bases together determine the amino acid that is added to the growing polypeptide chain during translation. This three base grouping is known as a(n) __________.
The three base grouping in RNA that determines the amino acid created in translation is known as a codon. Gene refers to the region on DNA that codes for a given trait. Operators and promoters are also located on DNA, and act as regulatory elements.
