RNA Products Protein Translation         


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


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.
