Nucleic Acids and the Genetic Material Problem Set 1

Problem 9: Problems on transcription

Three types of RNA involved in comprising the structural and functional core for protein synthesis, serving as a template for translation, and transporting amino acid, respectively, are:

Three types of RNA

  • mRNA- messenger RNA. The template for protein synthesis.
  • tRNA- transfer RNA. The "adapter" molecule that converts nucleic acid sequence to protein sequence.
  • rRNA- ribosomal RNA. The structural and sometimes catalytic molecule of the ribosome.
