Nucleic acids
State that deoxyribosenuclei acid is a polynucleotide usually double stranded, made up of
nucleotides containing the bases groups A,T,C,G
DNA
-in scientific terms its also called Deoxyribosenucleic acid (DNA)
-found in almost EVERY eukayotic cell in the nucleus of a cell
- Acts as an information storage,…

Nucleotides
-Nucleic acids are chains of nucleotides which are covalently bonded together
-Remember, nucleotides of the same sugar could be binded together, forming a long chain of
polynucleotide.

THE CRUCIAL FACT YOU NEED TO REMEMBER AND MUST REMEMBER!
RNA has a pentose sugar called RIBOSE
DNA has a pentose…

-Hydrogen bonds form between the two anti-paralell strands by bringing them together
-The space between these anti-parallel strands is taken up by those naughty nitrogenous bases as they
project inwards.
-Surprisingly, Hydrogen bonds strengthens the DNA structure by making it stale. Thank God for that
because if the hydrogen…

RNA
1.RNA is in three forms and has three personalities because it is needs to be read and translate the
information in order to produce various proteins required to make living things functions
The three forms of RNA INCLUDE
Messenger RNA (Mad RNA )
-template strand of other DNA…
