From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A primary transcript is an RNA molecule that has not yet undergone any modification after its synthesis. For example, a precursor messenger RNA (pre-mRNA) is a primary transcript that becomes a messenger RNA (mRNA) after processing, and a primary microRNA transcript (pri-miRNA) becomes a microRNA (miRNA) after processing.
