DNA

Deoxyribonucleic Acid

DNA

(Variation and inheritance) the material inside the nucleus of cells which carries genetic information. DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic Acid

DNA

(Learning Modules / Biology / DNA / Glossary) DNA is the molecule that carries inherited features from generation to generation and controls the activities of cells. See also deoxyribonucleic acid.

DNA

(= deoxyribonucleic acid) The genetic material of all cells and many viruses. A polymer of nucleotides. The monomer consists of phosphorylated 2-deoxyribose N-glycosidically linked to one of four bases : adenine, cytosine, guanine or thymine. These are linked together by 3',5'-phosphodiester bridges. In the Watson-Crick double-helix model two complementary strands are wound in a right-handed helix and held together by hydrogen bonds between complementary base pairs. The sequence of bases encodes genetic information. Three major conformations exist A-DNA, B-DNA (that corresponds to the original Watson-Crick model) and Z-DNA. ...

DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses. DNA is a nucleic acid; alongside proteins and carbohydrates, nucleic acids compose the three major macromolecules essential for all known forms of life. Most DNA molecules consist o...
