Collectively, the three types of RNA transmit genetic information for the manufacture of proteins.


Very simply, messenger-RNA (mRNA) forms as a single strand of genetic material to transmit genetic information from the DNA using the same four nucleotides (Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, and Uracil) to the ribosomes.

Transfer-RNA (tRNA) helps transfer amino acids to the ribosomes where ribosomal-RNA (rRNA) synthesises proteins using the amino acids.
