TRANSCRIPTION - FROM DNA TO RNA
How does messenger RNA differ from DNA?
Mildenhall KB, Wiese N, Chung D, et al. (2016) RNase E‐based degradosome modulates polyadenylation of mRNAs after Rho‐independent transcription terminators in Escherichia coli. Molecular Microbiology 101: 645–655.
Before we can talk about that we have to introduce transfer RNA . . .
Transcription is under the control of the enzyme . The first thing that the enzyme has to do is to find the start of the gene on the coding strand of the DNA. Remember that DNA has lots of genes strung out along the coding strand. That means that the enzyme has to pick the right strand and identify the beginning of each gene.

And again, the ribosome moves forward one codon, a new peptide bond is formed, and the transfer RNA on the left breaks away to be used again later.
Protein Synthesis Process and Role of DNA And RNA In It
In DNA the hydrogen bonding between A and T helps to tie the two strands together into the double helix. That isn't relevant in RNA because it is only a single strand. However, you will find several examples in what follows on this and further pages where the ability of adenine (A) to attract and bond with uracil (U) is central to the processes going on.
Protein Synthesis Process and Role of DNA And RNA ..
As it was finally understood, several types of RNA represent a basic division of labor in protein synthesis. Messenger RNA (mRNA) presents information contained in DNA sequences to the ribosomes, which are structured by ribosomal RNA (rRNA). Other molecules, known as transfer RNA (tRNA), attach to specific amino acids and conduct them to the ribosomes for protein synthesis.
