II Kinds of RNA
Messanger RNA- mrna: single stranded RNA copy of DNA gene will be translated to amino acid sequence
Transfer RNA- trna: involved in translation of mRNA to amino acid chain;
this has a "clover leaf" structure that is single stranded but is base paired with itself;
one end has an amino acid attached and the other end has 3 bases that can pair with sets of 3 bases on mRNA
aka Anticodons
Ribosomal RNA; rrna: main thing ribosomes are made of
ribosomes is where translation occurs
