Nucleic acids are biopolymers, or large biomolecules, essential for all known
forms of life. Nucleic acids, which include DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA
(ribonucleic acid), are made from monome...
Like DNA, RNA is composed of its phosphate group, five-carbon sugar (the less
stable ribose), and four nitrogen-containing nucleobases: adenine, uracil (not ...

The 5-carbon sugars ribose and deoxyribose are important components of
nucleotides, and are found in RNA and DNA, respectively. The sugars found in ...
In this section: The building blocks | Phosphates | Sugars | Organic bases |
Putting the building ... in DNA the sugar is deoxyribose; in RNA the sugar is
The sugar of RNA is ribose, and the sugar of DNA is deoxyribose, with only one
oxygen distinguishing them: where a hydrogen (H) bonds in deoxyribose, ...
Differences: - DNA is double-stranded, RNA is single-stranded. - DNA contains a
pentose sugar Deoxyribose, RNA contains the pentose sugar Ribose.
RNA, or ribonucleic acid, has ribose as its sugar. Ribose has five carbon atoms
and is called a pentose sugar. DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, also contains a ...
The sugar-phosphate backbone forms the structural framework of nucleic acids,
like DNA and RNA, and is composed of alternating sugar and phosphate ...
RNA; A single-stranded polymer of nucleotides that contain the sugar ribose;
made through the process of transcription; three primary types exist, and all three
