Transcription and interpretation
RNA is a lengthy string of bases similar to a strand of DNA, except that the bottom uracil (U) replaces the beds base thymine (T). Hence, RNA contains information that is triplet-coded like DNA.
Whenever transcription is set up, an element of the DNA double helix splits open and unwinds. Among the unwound strands of DNA will act as a template against which a strand that is complementary of kinds. The complementary strand of RNA is known as messenger RNA (mRNA). The mRNA separates from the DNA, leaves the nucleus, and travels into the cellular cytoplasm (the an element of the cellular outside of the nucleus—see Figure: in a very Cell). [Read more…]
