Research in lecture - All about Nucleic Acid Nucleic acids are large organic compounds found in the chromosomes of living cells and viruses. They are strong acids found in the nucleus of the cells. The nucleic acid polymers are with high molecular weights as high as 100,000,000 grams per mole. With proteins, nucleic acids are most important biological macromolecules. They are found in abundance in all living cells...

MagpayoNucleic AcidsNucleic acids are large organic compounds found in the chromosomes of living cells and viruses.They are strong acids found in the nucleus of the cells. The nucleic acid polymers are withhigh molecular weights as high as 100,000,000 grams per mole. With proteins, nucleic acids aremost important biological macromolecules. They are found in abundance in all living cells.Nucleic Acid DefinitionNucleic acids are essential large biological molecules for all forms of life. The nucleic acids includethe DNA and the RNA. They are the hereditary determinants of living organisms. They are presentin most living cells either in free state or bound to proteins as nucleoproteins. The nucleic acids arebiopolymers with mononucleotides ad their repeating units. The monomers are known asnucleotides, they are made up of three units: a sugar, an amine and a phosphate group.Types of Nucleic AcidsNucleic acids are of two types DNA and RNADNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)DNA is one of the macromolecules, they are essential to all living forms.Deoxyribonucleic acid contains the genetic information, it is used in the development andfunctioning of all living organisms.The DNA segments carry genetic information are called the genes.Ot
