Profile

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a nucleic acid in which the pentose sugar moiety of the nucleotides is ribose, the purine bases are adenine and guanine, and the pyrimidine bases are cytosine and uracil. RNA exists as a single polynucleotide strand that replicates using DNA as a template during which process the pairing of bases between the complementary strands of RNA and DNA is always the same: adenine with uracil and cytosine with guanine. RNA is present in cell nuclei and cytoplasm and is directly involved in protein synthesis; it also plays a part in encoding genetic information. RNA also carries the genetic material of RNA viruses. Gene suppression by RNA interference has been tried in the immunotherapy of hepatitis and cancer.
