Watson and Crick DNA Model

Watson and Crick DNA Model DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid which is a molecule that contains the instructions an organism needs to develop, live and reproduce. It is a type of nucleic acid and is one of the four major types of macromolecules that are known to be essential for all forms of life. DNA Model … Read moreWatson and Crick DNA Model

Nucleic Acids- Nucleosides and Nucleotides

Nucleosides and Nucleotides

Nucleic Acids- Nucleosides and Nucleotides Nucleotide is any member of the class of organic compounds in which the molecular structure comprises a nitrogen-containing unit (base) linked to a sugar and a phosphate group.  They are monomeric units of nucleic acids and also serve as sources of chemical energy (ATP, GTP), participate in cellular signalling (cAMP, cGMP) and function as … Read moreNucleic Acids- Nucleosides and Nucleotides
