Nucleotides are monomers of nucleic acids. nucleotides are made of three subunits: a phosphate group, a nitrogenous base and a 5-caron sugar all joined by a covalent bond. All nucleotides have the same phosphate group, all have a 5-carbon sugar and one of five different organic bases. the sugar can either be ribose or deoxyribose. If the sugar is ribose the nucleic acid fromed will be ribonucleic acid (RNA). If the sugar is deoxyribose the nucleic acid fromed will be deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). DNA is found in the nucleus and…
