Question 258905

As a laboratory researcher, you have obtained three (3) human gene sequences from the gene bank. Of which. they were found out to be template that encoded for peptide hormone A, hormone B and hormone C in human body. The production of these hormones can have pharmaceutical uses in the future, for example, hormone replacement therapy in treating disease. Expression of biological information is one of the important steps to produce exogenous protein in biotechnology field. To figure this out, you look into the process of protein synthesis that occurs naturally in a cell.

Gene sequence for hormone A:

3′ …TAC TGG ATG CGC CTC CTG CCC CTG GCG CCA ATT … 5¹

Gene sequence for hormone B:

3’…TAC GTT ATG CCC ATA TAG TTT CCT GAG AAG ATC… 5′

Gene sequence for hormone C:

3′ …TAC TCC TTG CGG CTC GTA TCT CTG TCG CAA ACT… 5¹
