Ribonucleic Acid

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 07 May 2022

Ribonucleic acid is a nucleic acid present in all living cells that has structural similarities to DNA. An RNA molecule has a backbone constructed from rotating phosphate groups and the sugar ribose, as opposed to the deoxyribose found in DNA. Various types of RNA exist in cells: messenger RNA, ribosomal RNA and transfer RNA. Particular infections use RNA as their genomic material. Truly, when you think about it, RNA, in so many ways, is the actual functional type of nucleic acids that truly the body uses to do the company of, you know, reacting or building cells to immune challenges, of bring amino acids from one part of the cell to the other, that quite commonly I really feel that RNA doesn't get the respect it is entitled to. Truly, I would urge everyone to learn about the special duties that tRNAs and rRNAs have as well, due to the fact that each of these fits into the puzzle of life in a wonderfully unique way.
