Ribosomal subunit. Computer model showing the structure of the RNA (ribonucleic acid) molecules in an 80S (large) ribosomal sub-unit. Ribosomes are composed of protein and RNA. They consist of subunits that fit together and work as one to translate mRNA (messenger RNA) into a polypeptide chain during protein synthesis (translation).
