In the first mutation of the CYP2C9 gene described in Henry’s


Question Description:

35

In the first mutation of the CYP2C9 gene described in Henry’s story, the 1075th nucleotide had changed from an adenine (A) to a cytosine (C). This mutation converts an ATT triplet code in the coding strand of the DNA molecule to CTT. Beginning with this triplet code on the DNA, describe the effect that this change would have on the following: The nucleotide sequence on the template strand of the gene. The mRNA codon that results after this triplet code is transcribed. The anticodon on the tRNA molecule that is complementary to the mRNA codon described above. The amino acid that would be carried by the tRNA molecule described above.
