Cell-Free Protein Synthesis and the Genetic Code
Description:
In addition to determining the base composition for fifteen amino acids, this paper by Nirenberg and Matthaei reaches the following tentative conclusions: that the genetic code is degenerate, at least partly universal, and still partly unknown. The number and sequence of nucleotides, amount of degeneracy and polarity, and chemical nature of nucleotides are also discussed.
