DNA strand terminology
Sense strand, coding strand, noncodagenic strand, nontemplate strand
The DNA strand with the same sequence as the transcribed mRNA (given U in RNA and T in DNA) and containing the linear array of codons which interact with anticodons of tRNA during translation to give the primary sequence of a protein. Compare with anticoding strand.
