Definition: tRNA are a class of RNA having structures with triplet nucleotide sequences that are complementary sequences to the triplet nucleotide coding sequences of mRNA.

The role of tRNAs in protein synthesis is to bond with amino acids and transfer them to the ribosomes, where proteins are assembled according to the genetic code carried by mRNA.
