MeSH Heading
RNA, Transfer
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
general or unspecified; prefer specifics; for suppressor transfer RNA coordinate with GENES, SUPPRESSOR or SUPPRESSION, GENETIC
Scope Note
The small RNA molecules, 73-80 nucleotides long, that function during translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC) to align AMINO ACIDS at the RIBOSOMES in a sequence determined by the mRNA (RNA, MESSENGER). There are about 30 different transfer RNAs. Each recognizes a specific CODON set on the mRNA through its own ANTICODON and as aminoacyl tRNAs (RNA, TRANSFER, AMINO ACYL), each carries a specific amino acid to the ribosome to add to the elongating peptide chains.
