mRNA (messengerRiboNucleicAcid) are the result of transcription, which is a process using DNA helicase (an enzyme that splits DNA down the centre) and RNA polymerase (which helps build up the mRNA molecule) to gain a complementary "copy" from one of the two strands of DNA, known as the coding/template strand. It is a short lived molecule that is used in translation with tRNA (t for transfer) to help form polypeptide chains (chains of amino acids), as the mRNA has a series of codons that are complementary to each different tRNA's anticodon.
