Solution Preview

Transfer RNA molecules are found in the cytoplasm. There are 20 different kinds of amino acids in cells, and there is a different form of transfer RNA for each amino acid.

Each kind of transfer RNA has a three-nucleotide sequence, called an anticodon that is complementary to a codon on the messenger RNA. It has a very specific secondary and tertiary structure such that it can bind an amino acid at one end, and messenger RNA at the other end. Its function is to transport amino acids from the cytoplasm to the ...
