Problem 38Q

If a protein contains 300 amino acids, about how many nucleotides are in the gene that codes for it?

Solution 38Q:

A codon is formed with three nucleotides with their bases and that codes for one amino acid.

If the protein contains 300 amino acid , the DNA nucleotides would make up the coding region of the gene = 300 x 3 = 900

Thus, 900 DNA nucleotides are in the gene that codes for it.
