Ribonucleic Acid (RNA)

Nucleic acid that contains ribose and uracil as structural components and are associated with the control of cellular chemical activities, such as messenger, ribosomal and transfer RNA. A single-stranded string of cytosine, guanine, adenine, and uracil (instead of thymine, as is DNA) bases.
