The three stop codons UAG, UAA, UGA do not code for any
proteins. then why does the start codon AUG code for a
protein, i.e, methionine?
Answer / ak912
AUG codon codes for an amino acid ;Methionine, because a tRNA is available with the anti-codon complementary to the AUG codon. This tRNA brings in the Methionine molecule when charged to the site of protein synthesis ie Ribosomes in the cytosol.

In sesame, the one-pod condition (P) is dominant to the three-pod condition (p), and normal leaf (L) is dominant over wrinkled leaf (l). The two characters are inherited independently. Determine the genotypes and phenotypes of the two plants which produce the following progeny: 318 one- pod normal, 98 one-pod wrinkled, 323 three-pod normal and 104 three-pod wrinkled.
