ochre suppressor

ochre suppressor
A gene that codes for an altered tRNA so that its anticodon can recognize the ochre codon and thus allows the continuation of protein synthesis. A suppressor of an ochre mutation is a tRNA that is charged with the amino acid corresponding to the original codon or a neutral substitute. Ochre suppressors will also suppress amber codons.
