'Flavr Savr' tomatoes are tomatoes that have been genetically modified so they take longer than normal to ripen. Genetic engineers have achieved this delay in ripening by disabling a critical tomato gene so it fails to produce a gene needed for ripening.
To disable the gene, a start codon is inserted at the beginning of the nonsense strand so both sense strand and nonsense strand get copied into mRNA.
Explain why this prevents a polypeptide from being produced.
Any ideas will be appreciated, thank you!
