transfer RNA


  • WordNet 3.6
    • n transfer RNA RNA molecules present in the cell (in at least 20 varieties, each variety capable of combining with a specific amino acid) that attach the correct amino acid to the protein chain that is being synthesized at the ribosome of the cell (according to directions coded in the mRNA)

The Phylogeny of Transfer-RNA Sequences Provides Evidence for Ambiguity Reduction in the Origin of the Genetic-Code.
A colorful origin for the genetic code: Information theory, statistical mechanics and the emergence of molecular codes
This process is mediated by the transfer RNA (tRNA) which transports amino acids to the corresponding codon, and by ribosomes that weave the amino acids together.
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
In a typical experiment, such as observation of the resonant energy transfer efficiency between two fluorophores incorporated into an RNA molecule, fluctuations of a spectroscopic observable in the absence of an external field are monitored.
Splitting probabilities as a test of reaction coordinate choice in single-molecule experiments
In an attempt to include some of the soft physics omitted from pQCD, and to extend the region of applicability of pQCD down to lower momentum transfers, Brodsky and Hiller introduced the idea of reduced nuclear amplitudes (RNA) [186].
Electromagnetic structure of the deuteron
Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) is now known to be involved in many biological processes, such as carriers of genetic information (messenger RNAs), simple adapters of amino acids (transfer RNAs), and enzymes catalyzing the reactions in protein synthesis, cleavage and synthesis of phosphodiester bonds (1; 2).
