RNA stands for ribonucleic acid. It carries the coding for protein synthesis. It is the same coding as the DNA but instead of Thymine it has Uracil. So now the base pairs are A-U G-C

What are the key differences in messenger RNA and transfer RNA?

The first difference is that Messenger RNA is a code carrier for polypeptide while transfer RNA does not carry any code. Another difference is that mRNA is an ufolded molecule while tRNA is a folded molecule.

What is the role of rna in gene expression?

The central dogma of molecular biology has been: DNA makes RNA; RNA makes proteins. Proteins carry out the bulk of functions involved in running a living organism.

What does RNA stand for in cells?

RNA is ribonucleic acid. It is a nucleic acid just as DNA. DNA is deoxyribonucleic acid. It actually has to do with OH groups on the sugars ribose and deoxyribose. In higher organisms, RNA functions: to carry the message from DNA, to carry an amino acid, and in the make up of organelles called ribosomes.

What does the messenger RNA carry that is of the DNA instructions of the nucleus to the?

The mRNA molecules carry the coded instructions for making proteins from the nucleus out to the ribosomes.

Which mRNA molecule carries the amino acids?

I think you mean "which RNA molecule carries the amino acids?" mRNA will never carry an amino acid; however, tRNA (another class of RNA) will carry amino acids in translation.

What is the function of messenger RNA?

The function of messenger RNA is to carry copies of the instructions for assembling amino acids into proteins to the rest of the cell or, more specifically, to the ribosomes.
