example above is taken
from the complete mitochondrial
of an Atlantic Cod.
One or more stop codons
occur in five of the six reading frames (all
except the second frame
the lower strand,
open reading frame (...
T G A L I L M I A H G L A ....) is part of the code for a subunit
protein of the
enzyme cytochrome oxidase
Important note: to translate the above example, you must use the mitochondrial DNA code, which has different stop codons from the 'universal' code
