What is DNA

Things you would never believe DNA is capable of

Where DNA is located and what it does.

DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid. The two DNA strands are known as polynucleotides since they are composed of simpler units called nucleotides. Each nucleotide is composed of a nitrogen-containing nucleobase—either guanine (G), adenine (A), thymine (T), or cytosine (C)—as well as a monosaccharide sugar called deoxyribose and a phosphate group DNA is also located in the nucleus. To carry out these functions, DNA sequences must be converted into messages that can be used to produce proteins, which are the complex molecules that do most of the work in our bodies.

RNA and its functions.

RNA has a ribosomes sugar instead of a ribosomes sugar like DNA. RNA nucleotides have a uracil base instead of thymine.Ribonucleic acid is a polymeric molecule. It is implicated in a varied sort of biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes. RNA is nucleic acids, and, along with proteins and carbohydrates, constitute the three major macromolecules essential for all known forms of life.RNA carries the genetic information that can be inherited from one generation to the next.
