nucleic acid RNA and DNA are this type of DNA biomolecule
nucleotide phosphate, sugar, and base makes up the DNA ladder
deoxyribose the 5-carbon sugar found in DNA
ribose the 5-carbon sugar found in RNA
purines adenine and guanine
pyrimidines cytosine and thymine
adenine (A) bonds with thymine(T) in DNA and bonds with uracil(U) in RNA
thymine (T) this base is only found in DNA and bonds with adenine (A)
cytosine (C) bonds with guanine (C)
guanine (G) bonds with cytosine (C)
uracil (U) this base is only found in RNA and bonds with adenine (A)
base pairing A bonds with T or U and G bonds with C Good Cats Always Together Good Cats Always United
Double helix shape of DNA
hydrogen bonds found between the base pairs and holds the bases together

histones A protein in which DNA coils around
chromosomes contains the genetic information in DNA
