How is a tRNA able to recognize its proper mRNA codon?

▸ The amino acid on the tRNA recognizes the mRNA codon through hydrogen and ionic bonding.

▸ Appropriate shape of the tRNA allows it to fit onto the extended mRNA strand.

▸ Complementary hydrogen bonding between tRNA and mRNA promote binding.

▸ Ionic bonds between the tRNA and the active site of the ribosomal subunits promote binding to the mRNA.

▸ Hydrogen bonding between the ribosomal subunits and the mRNA creates the proper active site conformation to allow tRNA binding.
