methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase activity

Known as: methionyl ribonucleic formyltransferase activity, 10-formyltetrahydrofolate:L-methionyl-tRNA N-formyltransferase activity, methionyl-transfer RNA transformylase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: 10-formyltetrahydrofolate + L-methionyl-tRNA + H2O = tetrahydrofolate + N-formylmethionyl-tRNA. [EC:2.1.2.9]
