[1990]

Detailed Solution for Test: Molecular Basis Of Inheritance 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 3

Genetic code is triplet coding for one amino acid in a polypeptide chain. There are four different types of nucleotides - A,T,G, and C. Since a code is a triplet thus 64 (4×4×4) distinct triplet of bases determine the 20 amino acids. But out of 64 only 61 code for 20 amino acids. Three codons that do not code for any amino acids are terminator non sense codons (UAG, UGA and UAA). Still in 61 triplet codons there is an excess 41 codons and therefore more than one codon codes for same amino acid.

Out of A-T, G-C pairing, bases of DNA may exist in alternate valency state owing to arrangement called

[1994]

Detailed Solution for Test: Molecular Basis Of Inheritance 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 23

The tautomer forms of nitrogen bases are immuno-tautomer instead of amino group (e.g. cytosine, adenine) or enol instead of the keto group (e.g. thymine, guanine).
Tautomers are organic compounds that are interconvertible by a chemical reaction called tautomerization. The concept of tautomers that are interconvertible by tautomerizations is called tautomerism. Tautomerism is a special case of structural isomerism and can play an important role in noncanonical base pairing in DNA and especially RNA molecules.
