#DOTD: Wobble Base Pairing

4 May 2017

Wobble, or non-Watson-Crick, base pairing occurs at the third position of a codon, and is crucial to correct translation of RNA and its secondary structure. The following is a list of the main wobble base pairs:


G - U

U - I

A - I

C - I


Note that, I is found only in the anticodon of tRNA molecules.
