1 3 Types of RNA

2 mRNA Messenger RNA Facts: –uses DNA as template –single stranded –U replaces T –largest RNA molecule Function: mRNA is used to carry the genetic code from the nucleus to the ribosomes

4 tRNA Transfer RNA Facts: –On one end of the tRNA a specific amino acid attaches. –On the other end is a sequence of three base pairs called the anticodon, the complement of the codon on the mRNA. Function: tRNA bonds to amino acids and it is used in the synthesis of proteins

6 Ribosome

7 rRNA Ribosomal RNA Facts: –The small subunit of a ribosome contains an rRNA strand (1542 nucleotides long) –The larger subunit contains two strands of rRNA (one 2904 nucleotides in length and the other 120). Function: A component of ribosomes
