  • Difference between DNA and RNA
    • DNA
      • nucleotide is called Deoxyribonucleotide
        • pentose sugar is called deoxyribose
      • very long
      • one type of DNA
      • Double stranded
      • 4 bases; adenine, thymine, guanine & cytosine
        • base pairs :  A-T, G-C
    • RNA
      • nucleotide is called ribonucleotide
      • pentose sugar is called ribose
      • relatively short
      • 3 types
        • mRNA - messenger
        • rRNA - ribosomal
        • tRNA - transfer
      • single stranded
        • tRNA & rRNA have folds which join
      • 4 bases ; A,U,C,G
        • NO BASE PAIRING
