RNA– Ribonucleic Acid is one of the three major biological macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life (along with DNA and proteins).can also act as enzymes (called “ribozymes”) to speed chemical reactions. In a number of clinically important viruses RNA, rather than DNA, carries the viral genetic information. RNA also plays an important role in regulating cellular processes–from cell division, differentiation and growth to cell aging and death. Defects in certain RNAs or the regulation of RNAs have been implicated in a number of important human diseases, including heart disease, some cancers, stroke and many others.
