Amutation in the sequence of bacterial dna encoding the ribosome-binding site (rbs) may result in which of the following? a mutation in the sequence of bacterial dna encoding the ribosome-binding site (rbs) may result in which of the following? reduced initiation of translation pausing of the rna polymerase during elongation reduced transcription of the mrna for the gene in which the mutation has occurred shortening of the peptide as it is being translated pausing of the ribosome during elongation submitrequest answer provide feedback next
The correct answer is "reduced initiation of translation".
The ribosome-binding site (RBS) is the sequence of DNA responsible for the recruitment of a ribosome, which results in the initiation of protein translation. A mutation that specifically occurs in a bacterial RBS may result in a reduced initiation of translation. A mutated RBS would likely fail to recruit the ribosome, which will affect the level of initiation of translation.
insert a different amino acid and continue to read the code, producing a different protein
the answer is b. zink
