from their parents consists of DNA. It provides directions for its own
replication. There is a second type RNA, DNA is transcribed into RNA, the
RNA molecule moves out of the nucleus and interacts with the protein
building machinery of the cell.
3.12: Nucleic Acids are polymers of nucleotides.
The monomers that make up nucleic acids are nucleotides. At the
centre is a five carbon sugar, the sugar is deoxyribose, whereas RNA is
just ribose. DNA has four nitrogenous bases: Adenine, thymine, cytosine,
and guanine, A links to T, C links to G. In RNA U is found instead of T.
RNA is a single strand where as DNA is a double helix.
3.14: Fats are lipids that are mostly energy storage molecules.
Lipids are diverse compounds that are grouped together because they
share one trait, they do not mix well wi
