Concept

Problem: Although both RNA and RNA are built from nucleotides, describe how the RNA nucleotides differs from the DNA nucleotide. Briefly explain RNA function.

FREE Expert Solution

DNA nucleotides and RNA nucleotides differ in terms of: 

  • Sugar present in the nucleotides. DNA nucleotides contains deoxyribose sugar while RNA nucleotides have ribose sugar. 
  • Nitrogen Bases. DNA has Adenine (A), Guanine (G), Cytosine (C) and Thymine (T) while RNA has Adenine (A), Guanine (G), Cytosine (C) and Uracil (U).
  • Strands. DNAs are usually double stranded while RNAs are usually single stranded.
