There are 4 types of RNA, each encoded by its own type of gene:

  • mRNA - Messenger RNA: Encodes amino acid sequence of a polypeptide.
  • tRNA - Transfer RNA: Brings amino acids to ribosomes during translation.
  • rRNA - Ribosomal RNA: With ribosomal proteins, makes up the ribosomes, the organelles that translate the mRNA.
  • snRNA - Small nuclear RNA: With proteins, forms complexes that are used in RNA processing in eukaryotes. (Not found in prokaryotes.)
