Anticodons are sequences of nucleotides that are complementary to codons. They are found in tRNAs, and allow the tRNAs to bring the correct amino acid in line with an mRNA during protein production.


Introns are nucleotide sequences in DNA and RNA that do not directly code for proteins, and are removed during the precursor messenger RNA (pre-mRNA) stage of maturation of mRNA by RNA splicing.
