A structural and functional component of ribosomes. Ribosomes are the cellular machinery responsible for the translation of the genetic information into proteins. They are composed of rRNA and ribosomal proteins.
A class of RNA found in the ribosomes of cells.
Type of RNA that forms structural and functional components of ribosomes; binds to both mRNA and tRNA to ensure the correct order of amino acids in a protein during translation.
RNAs which make up the scaffold upon which the ribosomal proteins are assembled to create the ribosomal subunits.
A nucleic acid found in all living cells. Plays a role in transferring information from DNA to the protein-forming system of the cell.
Ribonucleic acid that will end up or is part of the ribosomes.
ribosomal, translates mRNA into protein. rRNA provides the "scaffolding" on which many ribosomal proteins are assembled as 2 subunits that themselves assemble to form a ribosome. rRNA genes are localized to the nucleolus in the nucleus, a sometimes visible region of DNA usually constantly being transcribed.
