what is a nucleic acid? nucleic acid is an organic compound found in all living things
what is the main nitrogenous base of DNA? cytosine, guanine and thymine
what is the main nitrogenous base of RNA? adenine, guanine and uracil
what are the structural components of DNA? deoxyribose, phosphoric acid, and thymine
Name the bonds in nuleic acids 3',5'-phosphodiester bonds and N-glycosidic bond
what is the structure of nucleic acids? they are large polymers that consists of smaller repeating units made of monomers. The monomers are nucleotides.
what is the main nitrogenous base of DNA? cytosine, guanine and thymine
what are the structural components of DNA? deoxyribose, phosphoric acid, and thymine
what are Okazaki fragments? they are short DNA fragments, and they are located in the 5' to 3' direction
which sugar do DNA have? deoxyribose
Name the five nitrogenous bases Adenosine, thymine, Cytosine, Guanine and Uracil
which nitrogenous base is found in DNA but not in RNA? thymine
Multiple nucleotide form a polynucleotide.
what is the structure of a polynucleotide? a polynucleotide has a free phosphate group at one end and a free OH group at the other end
The two strands are wound round each other to form a? a double helix
The two strands are joined together by __________ between the bases? The two strands are joined together by hydrogen bonds between the bases
what is the structure of DNA? a double helix
who discovered the double helix structure of the DNA? James Watson and Francis Crick
what does a nucleotide consist of? a sugar, phosphate group, and a nitrogenous base
How many DNA strands are there? two
What is Thymine paired with in DNA? Adenine
What is guanine paired with in DNA? cytosine
what are the repeating units of DNA called? nucleotides
Which organelles have DNA molecules present? mitochondria and chrloroplasts
when does DNA copy itself? it copies it's self before cell division
what is the main nitrogenous base of RNA? adenine, guanine and uracil
what is an RNA? it is a single starnded ribonucleotide. The nucleotides are combined by 3',5'-phosphodiester bonds
what is an mRNA? it transfers the genetic information from nucleus to ribosomes.
what is the site of RNA processing? the nucleus is the site for RNA processing.
which sugar do RNA have? ribose
which nitrogenous base is found in RNA but not in DNA? Uracil
Is RNA a single or double stranded? RNA is single stranded
What is adenine paired with in RNA? Uracil
what is RNA a polymer of? RNA is a polymer of ribonucleotides linked together by 3'-5' phosphodiester linkage
how many nucleotide make up a codon? 3
