MetaCyc Pathways Class: Aminoacyl-tRNA Charging

Synonyms: Aminoacyl-tRNA Biosynthesis

This class contains the set of reactions by which the various amino acids become bonded to their corresponding tRNAs; the products of these reactions recognize cognate codons in mRNAs present in ribosomes and react there, forming peptide bonds, thereby, lengthening a growing polypeptide.
