anticodon A triplet sequence of nucleotides in transfer-RNA that during protein synthesis (see RIBOSOME) binds by base pairing to a complementary sequence, the so-called codon, in messenger-RNA attached to a ribosome. There are at least 20 different types of anticodon, each encoding for a specific amino acid carried by the transfer-RNA.
