mRNA is messenger RNA. mRNA is transcribed from DNA, and carries coding information to the ribosomes. Here, the RNA is translated into a protein. In mRNA genetic information is encoded in the sequence of nucleotides arranged into codons. Each codon encodes for a specific amino acid, except the stop codons that terminate protein synthesis.
This process also requires transfer RNA (tRNA) which mediates recognition of the codon and provides the corresponding amino acid.
