    In biochemical translation, there are the following molecules: mRNA, nascent polypeptide chain and uncharged tRNA. There is also the ACU molecule, which is an anticodon. But what does the "u" stand for? Thanks for your help.

    One of the differences between DNA and RNA ... is that RNA contains Uracil in stead of Thymine nucleotides.
