Amino acids — The building blocks of proteins. In vertebrates, there are 20 amino acids. In a gene, each amino acid is encoded by a sequence of 3 nucleotides (triplet) that instructs the cell to insert that amino acid in a specific position as the protein is assembled. No triplet encodes for more than one amino acid but different triplets encode for the same amino acid.
