Ribonucleoproteins are nucleoproteins (substances that are composed of nucleic acid and protein) which contain RNA as nucleic acid.

hey, my friend, a ribonucleoprotein is the essential component of ribosome. we know that ribosome is made of rRNA+protein. one simple ribosome has two subunits, one is large, the other one is smaller.
