Molecules of tRNA translate the mRNA code by picking up a specific amino acid from the cytoplasmSteps of Translation: Steps of Translation 3. In the ribosome, bases on the tRNA match with bases on the mRNA like pieces of a puzzleSteps of Translation: Steps of Translation 4. tRNA releases their amino acids and they become linked in a chain You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
