satisfying explanation to accompany it. Both RNA and DNA are ...
Like DNA, RNA is composed of its phosphate group, five-carbon sugar (the less
stable ribose), and four nitrogen-containing nucleobases: adenine, uracil (not ...
DNA contains the sugar deoxyribose, while RNA contains the sugar ribose. The
only difference between ribose and deoxyribose is that ribose has one more ...
The five-carbon sugar found in RNA is ribose. Ribose is an important
carbohydrate for generating energy in the cells of living...
Differences: - DNA is double-stranded, RNA is single-stranded. - DNA contains a
pentose sugar Deoxyribose, RNA contains the pentose sugar Ribose.
DNA differs from RNA in both structure and function. The two molecules have
different types of sugars, vary in the types of nitrogenous bases in each, are
RNA is a single-stranded nucleic acid. RNA has a ribose sugar instead of a
deoxyribose sugar like DNA. RNA nucleotides have a uracil base instead of
