An @R05386@ molecule that transfers the coding information for protein synthesis from the @C01077@ to the @R05389@. mRNA is formed from a @D01597@ @T06269@ by @T06436@. It may be a copy of a single @G02604@ or of several adjacent genes (polycistronic mRNA). On the ribosome, the @ST06775@ is converted into the programmed amino acid @ST06775@ through @T06475@.
