ribosomal rna
Weegy: It is a jelly-like material that is eighty percent water and usually clear in color. User: messenger rna Weegy: Messenger RNA (mRNA) is a large family of RNA molecules that convey genetic information from DNA to the ribosome, where they specify the amino acid sequence of the protein products of gene expression. [ Following transcription of mRNA by RNA polymerase, the mRNA is translated into a polymer of amino acids: a protein, as summarized in the central dogma of molecular biology. ] (More)

What forms part of the protein synthesis site in the cytoplasm?
Ribosomal RNA forms part of the protein synthesis in the cytoplasm.



Ribosomal ribonucleic acid (ribosomal RNA or rRNA) helps to form the ribosome itself. Unlike messenger RNA (mRNA), ribosomal RNA does not transmit genetic information. Instead, it combines with proteins to create a structure that systematically transforms mRNA into proteins. Ribosomes can float freely in the cellular cytoplasm, or they can be bound into a membrane called the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). ER that contains ribosomes is called rough ER. Proteins produced in the rough ER are transported through the ER to specific destinations. Ribosomes can also appear in different sizes. Larger ribosomes simply contain repeat copies of the same basic ribosomal RNA. Ribosomal RNA appears as two separate parts which operate together. They are the large subunit (LSU) and the small subunit (SSU). The LSU and the SSU move smoothy in tandem along the strand of mRNA they are translating. The LSU attracts transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules that carry the necessary amino acids.
