Transcription

When DNA is copied to RNA

steps to DNA to RNA

Step 1: One or more RNA polymerase binds to the DNA

Step 2: RNA polymerase move a transcription bubble

Step 3: Polymerase adds matching RNA nucleotide

Step 4: sugar phosphate backbone gets assistance from the RNA polymerase that forms RNA strand

Step 5: Hydrogen bond untwist RNA and DNA

Helps cells reproduce

it makes a new cell. the new cell is not identical to the old cell. this happens is asexual reproduction. RNA has Uracil instead of thymine.
