Article: Difference Between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic mRNA - Comment by: Ishwr Tiwari - 2017-02-08

The explanation was quite useful for the revision. Grateful to you for that. I have two questions. Does a codon codes for similar types of gene product in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes? Second, the prokaryotic mRNA is polycistronic, also there is a stopcodon for a particular protein formation. After the stop codon, how does the amino acid sequencing and polypeptide formation remains continuous despite a stopcodon has already dictated to stop the process of translation? I would be obliged if you had answered these.
