DNA Double Helix: 2 chains of nucleotides Four DNA bases: Adenine, thymine, cytosine, guanine – A pairs with T – C pairs with G DNA stores the info required to make a protein Gene: section of DNA that codes for a protein T C G A C
Predict the nucleotides to fill in this DNA chain
RNA Single chain of nucleotides RNA bases: Adenine, uracil, cytosine, guanine Transfer DNA information to help create protein U A C U G
Kobe Kuiz 1)Name the monomer of nucleic acids. 2)How are the four nitrogen bases of DNA abbreviated? 3)What does the phosphate molecule of a nucleotide bond with? 4)If the DNA nitrogen bases were TACCGGAT, how would the attached DNA strand read? 5)How are DNA and RNA different?
