Using RNA a s a template for prot e in synthesis instead of t r ans l a t ing prot e ins directly from the
DNA is advantageous for the cell because
A) RNA is much more stable than DNA.
B) RNA acts as an expendable copy of the genetic material, allowing the DNA to serve as a permanent,
pristine repository of the genetic material.
C) many mRNA molecules can be transcribed from a single gene, increasing the potential rate of gene
D) B and Conly
E) A,B, and C
I go with B. It makes more sense that way. DNA never leaves a cell only messenger RNA does.
