The translation process to create proteins make use of ribosomes. In this subcellular component, it has 3 transfer RNA (tRNA) binding sites: the A (aminoacyl) site, the P (peptidyl) site, and the E (exit) site. The A and P sites bind to tRNAs charged with their corresponding amino acids, while the E site particularly bind to uncharged tRNAs.
The initial tRNA, carrying the first amino acid, occupies the A site on the ribosome.
