8 Intermediate Types of RNA mRNA = messenger RNA tRNA = transfer RNA rRNA = ribosomal RNA snRNA = small nuclear RNA Chemistry and structure of RNA RNA is single-stranded (most of the time) Contains ribose sugar instead of deoxyribose Contains the pyrimidine uracil in place of thymine RNA bases are U,A,G,C U base pairs with A RNA
