Description
All the cells composing the body contain the genetic information necessary for the life of each individual. Genetic information is encoded by the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which represents the genomes and exerts its function via making proteins. A crucial intermediate in this process is ribonucleic acid (RNA) which is specifically called messenger RNA (mRNA). Recently, it has been shown that besides mRNA, RNA that does not produce proteins exists and its production and function in the cells are equally important to the ones employed by mRNA. Because the latter class of RNA is not created by the cells to produce proteins, but instead to have a regulative role,...
