A wobble base pair is a G-U and I-U / I-A / I-C pair fundamental in RNA secondary structure. Its thermodynamic stability is comparable to that of the Watson-Crick base pair. Wobble base pairs are critical for the proper translation of the genetic code. The genetic code makes up for disparities in the number of amino acids (20) for codons (64) by using modified base pairs in the first base of the anti-codon. One important modified base is inosine which can basepair with three bases including uracil, adenine, and cytosine.

Uracil is one of the four RNA nucleobases, replacing thymine as found in DNA. Just like thymine, uracil can form a base pair with adenine via two hydrogen bonds, but it lacks the methyl group present in thymine. ...

Another critical base pair is the G-U base pair, which allows uracil to base pair with two bases: guanine and adenine. Uracil is one of the four RNA nucleobases, replacing thymine as found in DNA. Just like thymine, uracil can form a base pair with adenine via two hydrogen bonds, but it lacks the methyl group present in thymine. ... Guanine is one of the five main nucleobases found in nucleic acids (, DNA and RNA). ... Adenine is one of the two purine nucleobases used in forming nucleotides of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA.

tRNA Wobble

The fact that there are 61 amino acid coding codons and only 20 amino acids presented a problem. But in 1966 Francis Crick proposed the Wobble hypothesis to account for this. He postulated that the 5' base on the anti-codon was not as spatially confined as the other two bases and could thus have non-standard base pairing. This would account for 61 codons for 20 amino acids.
