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
Select Option prolineserinecysteinearginine
. The problem most likely to be caused by this mutant tRNA would be the
Select Option premature termination of translationfailure to stop translation at the end of the coding sequencemistranslations equivalent to missense mutations
. One possible mutation this mutant tRNA could suppress would be
Select Option nonsense mutationsmissense mutationsframeshift mutations
