How do cells recycle their anti-codons after ribosomal translation?

by Jacob Jensen
(D. W. Daniel High School, Clemson, SC.)

So in the process of RNA translation, anti-codons bind with corresponding codons and proteins are built using the amino acids bonded to the anti-codons. The ribosomes of a cell facilitate this. So if the anti-codons donate their amino acids then after the translation process, the cell has all of these amino-acid-less anti-codons floating in the cytoplasm (and possibly rough E.R.). So how does the cell revitalize the anti-codons so they can be used again?
