c. ribosomes
d. microtubules

2 Answer

  • D. ribosomes ( rRNA stands forĀ ribosomal ribonucleic acidĀ )
  • Answer:

    c. ribosomes


    Like DNA, RNA (ribonucleic acid) is a nucleic acid. This molecule is essential in the synthesis of proteins, since it functions as an intermediary capable of expressing the information present in the DNA. The RNA molecule is formed from the DNA molecule in a process called transcription.

    There are three types of RNA, which are tRNA, rRNA and mRNA.

    Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) is one of the structural components of the ribosome. It is the rRNA that coordinates the interaction between mRNA, tRNA and proteins, during the process of protein synthesis.
