Question

the type of rna that physically interacts with a ribosome, providing the sequence information for a specific protein, is abbreviated:

Answer

"Class, today we are discussing the type of RNA that interacts with a ribosome to provide sequence information for a specific protein. This type of RNA is abbreviated as mRNA. Remember that messenger RNA is synthesized from DNA by transcription and carries genetic information from the nucleus to the cytoplasm, where it is translated into a protein by the ribosome. mRNA is made up of a linear sequence of nucleotides and each codon, which is a sequence of three nucleotides, specifies a specific amino acid. With the help of transfer RNA (tRNA) and other molecular components, the ribosome reads the mRNA sequence and adds corresponding amino acids to form a protein. Therefore, mRNA acts as a messenger, transmitting information from DNA to the ribosome so that a specific protein can be synthesized. The answer choice for this question is A.
