TABLE 4.5 The genetic code Third Position (3' end) Second Position First Position (5' end) Cys Cys Stop Trp Tyr Phe Phe Leu Leu Tyr er Ser er Stop Stop His His Gln Gln Arg Arg Arg Arg Pro Leu eu Leu Leu ro ro Ser Asn Asn Lys Lys Thr Ile Ile Met Thr Arg Val Val Val Val Ala Ala Ala Ala Asp Asp Glu Glu Gly Gly Gly Gly Note: This table identifies the amino acid encoded by each triplet. For example, the codon 5'- AUG-3' on mRNA specifies methionine, whereas CAU specifies histidine. UAA, UAG, and UGA are termination signals. AUG is part of the initiation signal, in addition to coding for internal methionine residues.
