The correct answer to the question is option C – To bring the DNA message to the ribosome. Messenger RNA, commonly referred to as mRNA, is produced during transcription. It carries genetic information from DNA to the ribosome. It acts as an intermediary between the genetic material in DNA and amino acids of proteins. It is synthesized by RNA polymerase II during transcription. mRNA is transported outside the nucleus where it meets with the ribosome (cellular machinery for assembling amino acids) and transfer RNA to begin the process of translation (protein synthesis). mRNA contains nucleotides known as codons that are complementary to the nucleotide sequence present on the template strand of the DNA transcribed. Transfer RNA (tRNA) binds to the specific codon on the mRNA, and this begins the process of translation.
