Medical Definition of Wobble hypothesis

1. Explains why the base Inosine is included in position 1 in the anticodons of various t RNAs, why many mRNA codon words translate to a single amino acid, why there are appreciably fewer t RNAs than mRNA codon types and why the redundant nature of the genetic code translates into a precise set of 20 amino acids. Inosine in Position 1 in the anticodon can base pair with A, u or C in position 3 in the mRNA codon, so that for example UCU, UCC, UCA all code for Serine using an inosine anticodon.
