Type of RNA - Functions mRNA - Carries information about polypeptide construction for translation from nucleus to cytoplasm. tRNA, - Carries amino acids to growing peptide and binds to mRNA. rRNA, - Acts as a catalyst (ribozyme) and takes on structural roles in ribosomes. Primary transcript - Contains all information from coding region including introns Small RNAs - Help to assemble complex, align RNA, catalyze splicing.
