Biology- RNA

View mindmap
  • RNA
    • Made up of monomers called ribonucleotide
      • This has 3 parts: Phosphate, Ribose sugar and a base
        • There are 4 bases: Guanine, Cytosine, Adenine and Uracil
          • Guanine pairs with Cytosine
          • Adenine pairs with Uracil
          • Uracil in RNA replaces Thymine in DNA
    • The role of RNA is: To male a copy of the sense strand of DNA which is then used to assemble amino acids in the ribosomes
    • Short= doesn't store as much information as DNA
    • Single stranded molecule
