Unformatted text preview: • 2 different types of RNa o mRNA- messenger, codes for the gene, has codons in it o tRNA- transfer, brings in the amino acid, has anticodons, looks like three leaf clover. Anticodon pairs with codon on transfer RNA. If the codon said AUG on messenger RNA the anticodon would be opposite = UAC o rRNA- Ribosomal, binds with proteins and makes a ribosome in the cytoplasm, site where amino acid covalently linked into a protein • RNA reads 5’ to 3’ • DNA reads 3’ to 5’ •...
