(a) Describe the structure and function of a t-RNA molecule. Why is it referred to as an adapter molecule?
(b) Explain the process of splicing of hn-RNA in a eukaryotic cell. (5)
(a) Clover-leaf shaped / inverted L shaped molecules has an anti codon loop with bases complementary to specific codon , has an amino acid acceptor end = 1+1As it reads the code on one hand and binds with the specific amino acid on the other hand.=1
(b) Introns are removed , exons are joined in a definite order = 1 + 1
Process of splicing shown diagramatically. (5)
