Subsequent to their aminoacylation, tRNAs are subject to specific maturation and/or correction processes. Aminoacylated tRNAs ready for use in translation are then specifically channelled to the ribosomal A or P sites. Structural and biochemical studies have opened the way towards furthering our understanding of these routes to the ribosome, which involve a strict distinction between initiator and elongator tRNAs.
