Mitochondrially encoded tRNA tyrosine also known as MT-TY is a transfer RNA which in humans is encoded by the mitochondrial MT-TY gene.[1]

MT-TY is a small 66 nucleotide RNA (human mitochondrial map position 5826-5891) that transfers the amino acid tyrosine to a growing polypeptide chain at the ribosome site of protein synthesis during translation.
