template

 [tem´plāt]
a pattern or mold. In dentistry, a curved or flat plate used as an aid in setting teeth for a denture. In theoretical immunology, an antigen that determines the configuration of combining (antigen-binding) sites of antibody molecules. In genetics, a strand of DNA which specifies the synthesis of a complementary strand of RNA (messenger RNA, ribosomal RNA, or transfer RNA); mRNA in turn serves as a template for the synthesis of nucleic acids or proteins.

tem·plate

(tem'plăt),
1. A pattern or guide that determines the shape of a substance.
2. Metaphorically, the specifying nature of a macromolecule, usually a nucleic acid or polynucleotide, with respect to the primary structure of the nucleic acid or polynucleotide or protein made from it in vivo or in vitro.
3. In dentistry, a curved or flat plate used as an aid in setting teeth.
4. An outline used to trace teeth, bones, or soft tissue to standardize their form.
5. A pattern or guide that determines the specificity of antibody globulins.
[Fr. templet, temple of a loom, fr. L. templum, small timber]

/tem·plate/ (tem´plit)
1. a pattern or mold.

templet

(tĕm′plĭt)
n.
Biochemistry A molecule of a nucleic acid, such as DNA, that serves as a pattern for the synthesis of a macromolecule, as of RNA.

template

[tem′plit]
Etymology: L, templum, section
the strand of DNA that acts as a model for the synthesis of messenger RNA. The messenger RNA contains a complementary sequence of nucleotides and travels to the ribosomes, which are located in the cytoplasm, for the synthesis of proteins.
