Codes that do not code for any amino acid and mark the end of the polypeptide chain
Outside factors which increase the rate of base mutations
The strand which is complementary to the template strand
A specific molecule that stimulates transcription
Sequence of 3 bases (triplet) on mRNA that code for a single amino acid
Substituted base codes for same amino acid
Result of the removal of introns from pre-mRNA
The 3 bases on the non-amino acid end of tRNA
Part of ribosome which travels along mRNA
Amino acids have more than one codon
Name of chain of DNA on which RNA polymerase moves along
Process whereby free nucleotides bond to complementary bases on DNA strand forming pre-mRNA
A replacement of one nucleotide with another
Clover leaf-shaped molecule with one end which a specific amino acid attaches
Gene which stimulates cell division

DefinitionTerm
Gene which slows cell division

Sections of DNA that do not code for a polypetide
Part of ribosome where tRNA enters
Process whereby polypeptide chain is formed by tRNA attaching to mRNA in cytpolasm
