Description:

The tRNAs decode the mRNA transcripts of genes into proteins and are charged with cognate amino acids.

Details:

The 86 tRNA genes are charged with (covalently linked to) the normal 20 amino acids as well as selenocysteine-specfic tRNA gene selC.

The tRNA gene products are named for the anticodons they contain, not the codons that the anticodons recognize in mRNA.
