wob·ble

(wah'bĕl),
In molecular biology, unorthodox pairing between the base at the 5' end of an anticodon and the base that pairs with it (in the 3' position of the codon); thus, the anticodon 3'-UCU-5' may pair with 5'-AGA-3' (normal or Watson-Crick pairing) or with 5'-AGG-3' (wobble). Wobble pairings can occur between the unusual base hypoxanthine and adenine, uracil, or cytosine; between uracil and guanine; and between guanine and uracil, when in the 5' position of an anticodon.

Molecular biology Nonstandard base pairing at the 3rd nucleotide of a codon; instability in tRNA’s affinity for the 3rd base in a codon at the 5’-end; this looseness allows an anticodon to pair with a codon other than that which would normally correspond to it
Neurology Bipedal instability

wob·ble

(wob'ĕl)
molecular biology Unorthodox pairing between the base at the 5' end of an anticodon and the base that pairs with it (in the 3' position of the codon).
