What Is 5 Carbon Sugar on a DNA Structure?

Answer

In DNA structure, the 5-Carbon sugar known as deoxyribose, consists of 5 carbon and 3 oxygen molecules. The hydroxyl groups, found on the 5' and 3' carbons, are responsible for linkage with phosphate groups that form the resultant DNA backbone. Other components of the DNA structure include a phosphate group and a nitrogenous base.
