A gene has four exons with lengths in base pairs (bp) as follows. Exon 1, transcription start to just before ATG translation initiation codon: 219 bp Exon 1, from ATG initiation codon to end of segment:282 bp Exon 2, all: 201 bp Exon 3, all: 93 bp Exon 4, beginning through (and including) TGA stop codon: 177 bp Exon 4, from just after TGA stop codon to polyadenylation site: 405 bp How many amino acids does the protein contain?

Transcription ATG phase is not considered into building a protein. That initial ATG to the end segment is what will be used to make the protein. As stated, Exon 1(282BP), Exon 2(201BP), Exon3 (93BP), Exon 4 (174BP) leading up to the stop codon will be translated. Therefore, 282BP+ 201BP+93BP+ 174BP+
