Translation

In the section in the book about elongation, it briefly mentions that the charged tRNA first goes to the T site. But after that, it says the charged tRNAs go to the A site first. So I was confused about where the charged tRNA goes first?


We're trying to keep things as simple as we can for this class, so I didn't introduce that additional terminology. Many people (myself included) don't even acknowledge the "T" site, since it's not a position where anticodon and codon are introduced to each other. For our purposes, tRNAs come into the A site.
