Nucleic Acids

  1. 1. Nucleic Acids
  2. 2. <ul><li>DNA </li></ul><ul><li>RNA </li></ul><ul><li>The building blocks of nucleic acids are called NUCLEOTIDES </li></ul>Nucleic acids
  3. 3. <ul><li>Nucleotides : monomers of nucleic acids. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All nucleic acids consist of many nucleotides bonded together. </li></ul></ul>Nucleotide
  4. 4. <ul><li>1. Sugar: 5-carbon ribose or deoxyribose </li></ul><ul><li>2. Phosphate group </li></ul><ul><li>3. Nitrogen base </li></ul>Nucleotide
  5. 5. Nucleotides
  6. 6. DNA Structure <ul><li>Sugar= Deoxyribose </li></ul><ul><li>Specific Base Pairing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adenine-Thymine </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guanine-Cytosine </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Forms a double Helix Structure </li></ul>
  7. 7. RNA structure <ul><li>Sugar= Ribose </li></ul><ul><li>Thymine gets replaced by Uracil </li></ul><ul><li>Single stranded </li></ul>
  8. 8. Functions <ul><li>DNA is used to store genetic information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is replicated before cell division </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DNA is very important so it is stored in the nucleus. </li></ul><ul><li>It never leaves the nucleus </li></ul>
  9. 9. Functions <ul><li>Your DNA stores the code for your proteins, which exhibit your “traits” </li></ul><ul><li>The DNA gets converted to RNA in order to move out into the cytoplasm </li></ul><ul><li>In the cytoplasm it meets up with the ribosome, where it can synthesize proteins </li></ul>
