Term:RNA biosynthetic process
go back to main search page
Accession:GO:0032774 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of RNA, ribonucleic acid, one of the two main type of nucleic acid, consisting of a long, unbranched macromolecule formed from ribonucleotides joined in 3',5'-phosphodiester linkage. Includes polymerization of ribonucleotide monomers. Refers not only to transcription but also to e.g. viral RNA replication.
Comment:Note that, in some cases, viral RNA replication and viral transcription from RNA actually refer to the same process, but may be called differently depending on the focus of a specific research study.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: RNA anabolism;   RNA biosynthesis;   RNA formation;   RNA synthesis
