DNA . DeoxyriboNucleic Acid. The Structure of DNA (DEOXYRIBOSE NUCLEIC ACID). A. DNA is a macromolecules called NUCLEIC ACIDS. The other type of molecule in this category is RNA. Remember….
a. ADENINE bonds with THYMINE
b. GUANINE bonds with CYTOSINE
A. RNA is made of a SINGLE strand of NUCLEOTIDES. Each of these is composed of:
1. NITROGENOUS BASE
2. SUGAR (RIBOSE)
i. RNA also has 4 possible nitrogen bases BUT instead of thymine, RNA has a nitrogen base called URACIL.
