Nucleotide's + DNA


Nucleotides= biological molecules

Consist of a pentose sugar, phosphate + nitrogenous base

Form the monomers of nucleic acids= DNA+RNA

Become phosphorylated when they have more than one phosphate group=ADP, ATP etc.

Help regulate metabolic pathways

May be components of many coenzymes



Pentose sugar= deoxyribose

4 Nitrogenous bases; Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine + Guanine

One molecule consists of 2 polynucleotide strands

The strands are antiparallel joined by hydrogen bonds

Bonds between the sugar residue and
