Oranelles that contain pores that allow passage of RNA?

Post by msrowe » Tue Sep 11, 2007 12:26 am

I was thinking that it is only the Nucleus has pores that allow passage of RNA... Is this correct? Or are there other oranelles that allowe passage of RNA?

nope, you are correct. RNA can only pass through the nuclear pores
The exosome(the multiprotein complex that degrades "expired" RNA molecules) also (obviously) allows the passage of RNA. But it is not an organelle.
