For the DNA Base Sequence AAT, what is the matching mRNA Codon? Also, what is the correct tRNA Codon that binds to the mRNA Codon? And what is the correct amino acid that is coded by the base sequence?

Are you sure this is correct?

AAT - Asparagine , Amino acid = N http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_codon_table

I meant so AAT in DNA becomes UUA in mRNA

@karthikkrishna2012 I don't think that's right

So if UUA is the mRNA, then what is the tRNA Anticodon?

That's what I'm trying to figure out :/

Alright. Thanks for your help anyways

UUA codes for Leucine, but I still am not sure of the anticodon

For the DNA Base Sequence AAT, what is the matching mRNA Codon? Also, what is the correct tRNA Codon that binds to the mRNA Codon? And what is the correct amino acid that is coded by the base sequence? So, It's been a while since I've learned this in Biology, but here is what I'm pretty sure it true. The DNA Base sequence AAT will match with UUA on the mRNA strand. This is because RNA has uracil instead of thymine. Once you have the mRNA codon, the tRNA anticodon that matches with the UUA is AAU. the tRNA sequence of AAU codes for asparagine. I'm almost positive that this is correct.

Alright, so just to be sure: the mRNA codon is UUA; the tRNA is AAU; and the amino acid is asparagine?

Yes, and that seems to make sense with the link that Karth posted too, which makes me much more confident.

yes I just found the same, I agree with biophil
