Which of the organelles in a cell contain nucleic acid?
Jul 7, 2018
- This contains the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). You might even find RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the form of mRNA (messenger RNA), tRNA (transfer RNA) or rRNA (ribosomal RNA).
- Ribosomes are made of rRNA. You might also find mRNA or tRNA if translation is taking place.
- This contains circular naked DNA. That's why it's capable of self-division.
- Same as mitrochondria.
P.S . Cytoplasm will also have tRNA and possibly mRNA, but it's not an organelle.
