The five types of RNA are rRNA, mRNA, tRNA, snRNA, and snoRNA. Both rRNA and rRNA often translate genetic information into proteins. Besides, the bases of each of these two types of RNA are highly modified (Allison, 2007). The rRNA folds properly whenever assembled with ribosomal proteins. The proteins often direct the order of folding. Nucleases process the structure of tRNA at each end. The average length of the tRNA is 76 nt. Regardless of the nt sequence, tRNA has the same general shape. Also, tRNA has ACC at the third end, where the amino acid attaches (Allison, 2007). mRNA, which stores genetic information, tends to be more linear when compared to the other types. snRNA, whose role is to regulate gene expression, appears as a small nuclear. snoRNA is a small nucleolar that serves to guide the chemical actions of the other four RNAs.
