1

There are introns and exons in RNA - what are exons:

The sequences of nitrogen bases that are involved in the making of the protein

2

Basically RNA processing and editing following transcription is:

The introns are cut out and the remaining exons are spliced back together - and a cap and tail are added

3

Relevance of cap and tail in the RNA processing following transcription:

Help the ribosome identify the start and end

4

After transcription of RNA what happens:

The RNA is modified (polished) and the introns are cut out
