Genes
1 of 14
Three bases of DNA that code for one amino acid
Triplet
2 of 14
A template formed from the DNA
mRNA
3 of 14
When a strand of mRNA is formed from the DNA
Transcription
4 of 14
Three bases of mRNA that codes for one amino acid
Codon
5 of 14
The strand of DNA used for making protein
Reference Strand
6 of 14
A change in the amount or structure of DNA
Mutation
7 of 14
The formation of polypeptides from the mRNA base sequence
Translation
8 of 14

lac Operon
10 of 14
When a substitution of a base in the DNA results in no change to the amino acid produced
Silent
11 of 14
When a substitution of a base in the DNA results in the change of structure and function of the polypeptide chain produced
Missense
