Translating RNA - The Ultimate Guide To The Chemical Cousin of DNA

RNA is perhaps a lesser known nucleic acid than its chemical cousin DNA, but this by no means makes it less important! Here at Lexogen we know that RNA is as fascinating as it is integral to life and thought we would spread the message by showing the world exactly what RNA is all about. Starting with the basic components that make up ribonucleic acids, we explain the role RNA plays in protein synthesis, from the formation of messenger RNA during transcription to the translation of this mRNA into proteins, as well as looking into the different forms of RNA and the functions that they have in the body. And if that wasn’t enough, we have included some amazing facts about the molecule along the way! So help us to celebrate the fascinating and integral role RNA plays in nature by checking out...
