RNA is the product of transcription in a cell. Transcription occurs in the nucleus of the cell, but RNA travels to ribosomes in the cytoplasm for translation.Know More
Transcription occurs when RNA polymerase connects to a strand of DNA. The RNA polymerase forms a strand of RNA by joining nucleotides into a chain, using DNA as the template.
Three types of RNA are produced. Messenger RNA is the template used to create proteins. Ribosomal RNA uses the messenger RNA to determine the order of amino acids for the protein being created. Transfer RNA carries loose amino acids to be bonded to the end of the protein chain.Learn more about Molecular Biology & DNA
Transcription is the biological process where information in a strand of DNA is copied into a new molecule of messenger RNA. This transcribed DNA message or RNA transcript produces proteins.Full Answer >
Ribonucleic acid, known as RNA, is composed of a combination of four different nucleotides: adenine, uracil, guanine and cytosine. Each nucleotide primarily consists of a ribose sugar (five-carbon ring) and a phosphate group.Full Answer >
The five-carbon sugar found in RNA is ribose. Ribose is an important carbohydrate for generating energy in the cells of living organisms.Full Answer >
Nucleotides contain either ribose, found in RNA, or deoxyribose, found in DNA. Deoxyribose is not synthesized in the cell, it is produced by action of the enyme ribonucleotided reductase on ribonucleotide diphoshates. Ribose is the product of the pentose phosphate pathway.Full Answer >
