Question

What is aminoacylation? State its significance. [2] 


Solution

In translation, amino acids are activated in the presence of ATP and linked to their related tRNA(cognate), this process is called as aminoacylation of tRNA or charging of tRNA. [1] 

This is an essential step as only activated amino acids are carried to the site of protein synthesis by their respective tRNA. [1]
