transfer RNA (ribonucleic acid).

aminoacyl-tRNA
transfer RNA to which its specific amino acid has been coupled by its specific aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase.
aminoacyl-tRNA binding site
one of two tRNA binding sites on a ribosome that holds the incoming tRNA molecule charged with an amino acid. Called also A site.
aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases
a set of enzymes that couple each of the 20 amino acids to its appropriate tRNA molecule.
initiator tRNA
a special methionine tRNA that binds to the initiation codon AUG that forms part of the initiation complex at the start of mRNA translation.
peptidyl-tRNA binding site
one of two tRNA binding sites on a ribosome that holds the tRNA that is normally linked to the polypeptide chain. Called also P site.

It was to take 13 years (1966) before the genetic code was finally cracked, and during those 13 years there emerged a reasonably complete picture of how DNA, mRNA, tRNA, and ribosomes collaborate to produce proteins of genetically predetermined sequence.

As part of an effort to understand how tRNA attaches to the small subunit of a ribosome, Agris and his colleagues began to design DNA strands that resemble tRNAs in structure.
