Unformatted text preview: 4). Anticodon a). 3 nucleotides complementary to codon for amino acid in binding site b). Positions the amino acid in the proper sequence coded for in m-RNA b. Function 1). Carries amino acid to site protein synthesis (amino acid binding site) 2). “Positions” amino acid according to code in m-RNA (anticodon) 3. Ribosomal - RNA (r-RNA) a. Structure 1). r-RNA + proteins = ribosome 2). Two subunits form ribosome 3). Active site - attachment site for codons on m-RNA d. Function 1). Holds m-RNA in position 2). One codon at a time 3). Translation of m-RNA → protein synthesis...
