Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0009221

NCI Thesaurus Code: C62019  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Nucleotide Sequence

NCIt Definition: A specific sequence of three adjacent bases on a strand of DNA or RNA that provides genetic code information for a particular amino acid.

NCI-GLOSS Definition: In DNA or RNA, a sequence of 3 consecutive nucleotides that codes for a specific amino acid or signals the termination of gene translation (stop or termination codon).

MSH Definition: A set of three nucleotides in a protein coding sequence that specifies individual amino acids or a termination signal (CODON, TERMINATOR). Most codons are universal, but some organisms do not produce the transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER) complementary to all codons. These codons are referred to as unassigned codons (CODONS, NONSENSE).

Synonyms & Abbreviations: (see Synonym Details)
