BC: Nucleotides

Biochemistry, Medicine, Phase 1

Nucleic acids polymers of nucleotides; includes both DNA and RNA
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) storage of genetic information
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) conversion of genetic information into proteins
Nucleotides pentose sugar, phosphate, nitrogenous base
Adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine (AGCT) nitrogenous bases that make up DNA
Adenine, guanine, cytosine, uracil (AGCU) nitrogenous bases that make up RNA
ribosome, deoxyribose two types of pentose sugars involved with genetics
Backbone of DNA made up of alternative sugar and phosphate molecules
Complementary strand what every strand of DNA has
Hydrogen bonds bonds formed between nitrogenous bases
Helical structure of DNA
mRNA, rRNA, tRNA types of RNA
mRNA messenger RNA; copy of gene, template for protein synthesis
rRNA ribosomal RNA; structural component of the ribosome (protein synthesis machinery)
tRNA transport RNA; transport molecule for amino acids, ensure sequene of proteins encoded in mRNA is decoded
transcription mRNA synthesis
translation synthesis of protein based on encoded information on mRNA
RNA vs. DNA RNA is smaller and single strand
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) major energy molecule in cell; bonds between phosphates are high-energy when proken
ATP equation ADP + energy
Creating ATP ADP + phosphate + energy

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
