ribonucleic acid


  • WordNet 3.6
    • n ribonucleic acid (biochemistry) a long linear polymer of nucleotides found in the nucleus but mainly in the cytoplasm of a cell where it is associated with microsomes; it transmits genetic information from DNA to the cytoplasm and controls certain chemical processes in the cell "ribonucleic acid is the genetic material of some viruses"

In literature:

The synthesis of proteins is under the control of deoxyribonucleic acid or ribonucleic acid, abbreviated by the symbols DNA and RNA.

In news:

Ribonucleic acids, a fundamental building block of cells, have become the focus of increasingly intense study.

In science:

De-oxyribo nucleic acid (DNA) and Ribonucleic acid (RNA) are polynucleotides whereas proteins are polypeptides.
Template-directed biopolymerization: tape-copying Turing machines
Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) is now known to be involved in many biological processes, such as carriers of genetic information (messenger RNAs), simple adapters of amino acids (transfer RNAs), and enzymes catalyzing the reactions in protein synthesis, cleavage and synthesis of phosphodiester bonds (1; 2).
Force Unfolding Single RNAs: from Equilibrium to Far-from Equilibrium
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is one of the key players in molecular biology and has in the past attracted theoretical and experimental physicists because of its intriguing structural and functional properties.
