Problem: Sort each description by the type of RNA it describes.a) contains an anticodonb) specifies the amino acid squence for a proteinc) contains exonsd) has amino acids covalently attachede) is a component of ribosomesf) is the most abundant form of RNAWhich description fits tRNA, mRNA, rRNA?

FREE Expert Solution

a) contains an anticodon → tRNA

Anticodon is the complimentary 3-base sequence to the mRNA's codon.


b) specifies the amino acid sequence for a protein → mRNA

mRNA is read by the tRNA to produce a protein.
