Effects of a tRNA Mutation

GENES-HJDPJ3

Consider the following mutant tRNA anticodon:

5' ICA 3'

where "I" is the nucleotide inosine, found in tRNAs and is able to base pair with U, C, or A in the 3' position of a codon. It would be highly useful to consult a coding table.

This tRNA likely carries the amino acid

.

The problem most likely to be caused by this mutant tRNA would be the

.

One possible mutation this mutant tRNA could suppress would be

.
