Nucleac Acids - Nucleotide

NucleotideThree parts:
  • phosphate
  • sugar
  • base
DNA vs. RNA
Bases (thymine vs. uracil)
      DNA C G A T
      RNA C G A U
Sugars
      DNA deoxyribose
      RNA ribose

RNA 1-strand
DNA 2-strands
BASES:
    Purines: A G
    Pyrimidines: C T U
    Pairs: 1 purine, 1 pyrimidine
      G - C
      A - T
