A nucleic acid that is an essential component of all cells, composed of a long, usually single-stranded chain of nucleotide units that contain the sugar ribose; ribonucleic acid
A purine base, C5 H5 N5 , that is the constituent involved in base pairing with thymine in DNA and with uracil in RNA.
A white, crystalline, pyrimidine base, C5H6N2O2, contained in the nucleic acids of all tissue: it links with adenine in the DNA structure
A purine base that is a component of DNA and RNA, forming a base pair with cytosine. It also occurs in guano, fish scales, sugar beets, and other natural materials. Chemical formula: C5H5ON5.
A pyrimidine base, C4 H5 N3 O, that is the constituent of DNA and RNA involved in base-pairing with guanine.
The hydrogen bonding of complementary nitrogenous bases, one purine and one pyrimidine, in DNA and in hybrid molecules joining DNA and RNA.
A nucleic acid that carries the genetic information in cells and some viruses, consisting of two long chains of nucleotides twisted into a double helix and joined by hydrogen bonds between the complementary bases adenine and thymine or cytosine and guanine. DNA sequences are replicated by the cell prior to cell division and may include genes, intergenic spacers, and regions that bind to regulatory proteins.
Replication is the act of reproducing or copying something, or is a copy of something.
