Clover leaf-shaped molecule with one end which a specific amino acid attaches
Small double-stranded sections of RNA essential for gene expressions
Codes that do not code for any amino acid and mark the end of the polypeptide chain
A base change which results in different amino acid being coded for

Gene which slows cell division
Sections of DNA that code for a polypetide
A base change which results in a stop codon being produced
Each base sequence is read only once
Substituted base codes for same amino acid
