Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006399 - tRNA metabolic process

Synonyms: tRNA metabolism

Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways involving tRNA, transfer RNA, a class of relatively small RNA molecules responsible for mediating the insertion of amino acids into the sequence of nascent polypeptide chains during protein synthesis. Transfer RNA is characterized by the presence of many unusual minor bases, the function of which has not been completely established.
