Unformatted text preview: specific manner. For example, tRNA molecule X will link only to amino acid X; tRNA Y will link only to amino acid Y. The third form of RNA is messenger RNA (mRNA) . In the nucleus, messenger RNA receives the genetic code in the DNA and carries the code into the cytoplasm where protein synthesis takes place. Messenger RNA is synthesized in the nucleus at the DNA molecules. During the synthesis, the genetic information is transferred from the DNA molecule to the mRNA molecule. In this way, a genetic code can be used to synthesize a protein in a distant location. RNA polymerase , an enzyme, accomplishes mRNA, tRNA, and rRNA synthesis....
