The acronym rRNA stands for ribosomal ribonucleic acid. It is the RNA component of the ribosome in the cell. rRNA is essential for amino acid and protein synthesis and is a key component of translation in the cell. More »

The most abundant type of ribonucleic acid (RNA) is ribosomal RNA, or rRNA. It constitutes around 85 to 90 percent of total RNA in a cell. More »

The nucleolus works to transcribe ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and it forms incomplete ribosomes by combining proteins and rRNA. Other functions of this structure include transporting molecules, vital substances and ions to ensu... More »

RNA, or ribonucleic acid, is a family of biological molecules that function in gene synthesis, regulation and expression. Along with DNA, RNA plays an active role in transcribing and translating genes and proteins that m... More »

A codon is a sequence of three nucleotides that comprise the foundation of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA). Anticodons are three-sequence nucleotides found in transfer RNA that complement codons in protein production. More »

The anticodon of transfer ribonucleic acid (tRNA) is a sequence of three bases that is complementary to the three-base sequence of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) to specify the production of an amino acid, according t... More »
