ThesaurusAntonymsRelated WordsSynonymsLegend:
Noun1.mRNA - the template for protein synthesismRNA - the template for protein synthesis; the form of RNA that carries information from DNA in the nucleus to the ribosome sites of protein synthesis in the cell
ribonucleic acid, RNA - (biochemistry) a long linear polymer of nucleotides found in the nucleus but mainly in the cytoplasm of a cell where it is associated with microsomes; it transmits genetic information from DNA to the cytoplasm and controls certain chemical processes in the cell; "ribonucleic acid is the genetic material of some viruses"

We found that quantification of cells overexpressing E6, E7 mRNA in cervical cytology samples exhibited higher sensitivity and specificity than Papanicolaou (Pap) staining for high-grade lesions on biopsy in women younger than 30 years.
mRNA moves out of the nucleus of the cell to a free ribosome in the cytoplasm to begin the process of protein synthesis.
Working on the idea that the signature of a cell is defined by molecules called messenger RNAs (mRNAs), which contain the chemical blueprint for how to make a protein, the investigators changed two different cell types, an astrocyte (a star-shaped brain cell) and a fibroblast (a skin cell), into a heart cell, using mRNAs.
TSHR mRNA acts as a surrogate marker for circulating thyroid cancer cells, and in initial studies distinguished benign from malignant thyroid diseases.
