Entry term(s): 15S RNA
RNA, 15S
Ribosomal RNA
Tree number(s): D13.444.735.686
RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D012335
Scope note: The most abundant form of RNA. Together with proteins, it forms the ribosomes, playing a structural role and also a role in ribosomal binding of mRNA and tRNAs. Individual chains are conventionally designated by their sedimentation coefficients. In eukaryotes, four large chains exist, synthesized in the nucleolus and constituting about 50% of the ribosome.
