- Ribosomal RNA (rRNA)
- Transfer RNA (tRNA)
- Messenger RNA (mRNA)
What are the three types of RNA, and what are the functions of each?
1. Messenger RNA-- The “message” of what amino acids are to be linked together is carried by messenger RNA.
2. Transfer RNA-- The specific amino acids used to make protein are carried to the ribosome by transfer RNA
3. Ribosomal RNA--forms ribosomes, where protein synthesis occurs
