Programmed ribosomal frame shifting

Programmed Ribosomal Frame Shifting:
mRNA
UAAC/UUGCU/AUG/CCC/UCU/GAC/UGA-RF2
shine- Start Pro-Ser-Asp Stop
delgarno (Met)
sequence

*translation stops at UGA because there is no complimentary tRNA.
*RF2 binds with UGA, detaches final tRNA from its amino acid.

mRNA
UAAC/UUGCU/AUG/CCC/UCU/GAC/ U /GAA/ACC/ACU/AAA/UAG-RF1
shine- Start Pro-Ser-Asp +->1 Glu-Thr-Thr -Lys- Stop
delgarno (Met)
sequence

*RF1 binds other two stop codons
