  • question_answer 129) A codon is made up of

    A)  Single nucleotide

    B)  Two nucleotides

    C)  Three nucleotides

    D)  Four nucleotides

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    It was George Gamow, a physicist, who argued that since there are only 4 bases and if they have to code for 20 amino acids, the code should constitute a combination of bases. He suggested that in order to code for all the 20 amino acids, the code should be made up of three nucleotides. This was a very bold proposition, because a permutation combination of \[{{4}^{3}}(4\times 4\times 4)\] would generate 64 codons; generating many more codons than required.
