Genomic differences between individuals can change the physical organization of RNA transcripts

The information contained within a messenger RNA (mRNA) transcript goes beyond the protein recipe embedded in its sequence. mRNAs consist of single strands of nucleotides that can pair with each other in the same way as double-stranded DNA molecules. The resulting ‘secondary structures’ help determine when and how the encoded protein gets produced.
