Classes of RNA

mRNA serve as the intermediary that passes information from DNA to protein
functional RNA does not encode information to make protein. Instead, the RNA itself is the final functional product.
tRNA molecules are responsible for bringing the correct amino acid to the mRNA in the process of translation
rRNA large macromolecular machines that guide the assembly of the amino acid chain by the mRNAs and tRNAs
Small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs) are part of a system that further processes RNA transcripts in eukaryotic cells
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulating the amount of protein produced by many eukaryotic genes
Small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) prevent the spread of transposable elements to other chromosomal loci
Long noncoding RNAs(lncRNAs) transcribed from most regions of the genomes of humans and other animals and plants
