What are three roles that ribonucleic acid plays in the eukaryotic cell?. Earth & Marine Sciences

Messenger RNA is made from DNA code in the nucleus and travels outside of the nucleus to act as a template for the construction of a protein. RNA also forms the core of the ribosome, where amino acids are built into proteins. As micro-RNAs, RNA can also act as post- transcriptional regulators of gene expression by binding to complementary sequences on specific messenger RNAs and silencing the translation of these genes
