Answer to Question #40880 in Biochemistry for Shanu
If 13 amino acid is formed from a mRNA,then the minimum number of nitrogen base in that mRNA?
A series of three nucleotides code a single amino acid. mRNA must contain at least 39 nucleotides to code 13 amino acids (13 x 3 = 39). A single nucleotide contains a nitrogenous base, and so the 39 nucleotides contain 39 nitrogenous bases.
