Which of the following would be likely to reduce or prevent translation of a gene after it had been transcribed from the nucleus of a eukaryotic organism?

Select ALL that apply.


Production of an RNA identical to the template strand of the gene.


Production of an RNA identical to the RNA-like (negative) strand of the gene.


Binding of a protein to an exon, resulting in an alternate splicing.


Formation of hairpins or stem-loop structures in the RNA, dependent​ upon the speed at which it is being translated due to the presence or lack of certain amino acids.


Addition of a poly A tail to the mRNA.


Production of an RNA that binds, though imperfectly, to the mRNA.
