Codonnoun

A handbell used for summoning monks.

Anticodonnoun

(genetics) A sequence of three nucleotides in transfer RNA that binds to the complementary triplet (codon) in messenger RNA to specify an amino acid during protein synthesis.

Codonnoun

The "bell" or flaring mouth of a trumpet.

Codonnoun

(biochemistry) A sequence of three adjacent nucleotides, which encode for a specific amino acid during protein synthesis or translation.

Codonnoun

a sequence of three nucleotides in a genome or a DNA or messenger RNA molecule, which specifies the incorporation of one amino acid or is a stop signal, during the biosynthesis of proteins. Codons occur within the protein-coding segments of the DNA or RNA genome of living organisms. The amino acid sequence of proteins synthesized on ribosomes is thus determined by the sequence of the nucleotides in the genome.

Codonnoun

a specific sequence of three adjacent bases on a strand of DNA or RNA that provides genetic code information for a particular amino acid
