No, nucleic acids are not enzymes. Nucleic acids are made up of nucleotides where as enzymes are proteins, but all proteins are not enzymes.

No, nucleic acids are not enzymes. Nucleic acids are made up of nucleotides while enzymes are protein in nature.

no because there are some that are enzymes, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and amino acids. That is the answer.

nucleic acids. they are rna enzymes, and rna is a nucleic acid

Digestive enzymes break down nucleic acids:)

None are Nucleic acids Nucleic acid is RNA and DNA. Fat, oils and Starch do not fall in this category. Enzymes are tricky because they can associate with nucleic acids to replicated it.... but enzymes are really just proteins. So the answer is none are.

Nucleases such as DNAase or RNAase

A polymerase is an enzyme that creates polymers of nucleic acids. As an example, the enzyme RNA polymerase helps create nucleic acids that form transcript RNA.

Nucleic acids are created from nucleotides in the cell. These nucleic acids, both RNA and DNA, are pieced together via enzymes called polymerases.

Nucleic acids are found in DNA.

1) cell membrane 2) nucleic acids 3) enzymes

All living things contain nucleic acids. So, "all of them".

all of those macromolecules pretty much make for all of your body. lipids: shock protection, energy storage, hormones proteins: tissue, enzymes, hormones carbohydrates: energy nucleic acids: dna

Digestive enzymes break down the food we eat. There are enzymes for sugars, starches, fats, and proteins, even enzymes to digest nucleic acids.

Most enzymes are classified as proteins. However, there are some enzymes that are not classified as proteins such as ribozymes (nucleic acids) and vitamins (coenzymes).

Nucleases are produced in the pancreas. These are enzymes that digest nucleic acids, and the word nuclease represents any nucleic acid breaker.

Lysosomesare cellular organelles that contain acid hydrolase enzymes.

No, sugar is not a nucleic acid. But all nucleic acids contain sugars.

The nucleus contains the nucleic acids in a eukaryotic cell. The nucleic acid makes up all of the chromosomes.

What do proteins carbohydrates lipids ATP and nucleic acids all have in common

Nucleic Acids for one; proteins for another one, amino acids and enzymes

Nucleic acids are polymers of nucleotides.

Two nucleic acids are DNA and RNA. They stand for Dioxyribonucleic acids, and Ribo nucleic acids
