Like DNA, RNA is composed of its phosphate group, five-carbon sugar (the less
stable ribose), and four nitrogen-containing nucleobases: adenine, uracil (not ...
Aug 13, 2015 ... This is a nice question as it has both a very simple answer, and a surprisingly
satisfying explanation to accompany it. Both RNA and DNA are ...
Differences: - DNA is double-stranded, RNA is single-stranded. - DNA contains a
pentose sugar Deoxyribose, RNA contains the pentose sugar Ribose.
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 sugar-phosphate backbone forms the structural framework of nucleic acids,
like DNA and RNA, and is composed of alternating sugar and phosphate ...

... The phosphate is linked to the 5' carbon of the sugar in both RNA and DNA.
The nucleic acids DNA and RNA are well suited to function as the carriers of
genetic information by virtue of their covalent structures. These macromolecules
In this section: The building blocks | Phosphates | Sugars | Organic bases |
Putting the building ... in DNA the sugar is deoxyribose; in RNA the sugar is
A pentose sugar, C5H10O5, occurring as a component of riboflavin, nucleotides,
and nucleic acids. [German, alteration of English arabinose, a kind of sugar ...
Pentose Sugars. The pentose sugars ribose and deoxyribose are part of the
nucleotides that make up the crucial nucleic acids like DNA and RNA .
