Is RNA double stranded?
In most cases, no, RNA is single stranded. However, some viruses have double stranded RNA.
tRNA, or transfer RNA, is a single stranded molecule. The only double stranded RNA is dsRNA, or double stranded RNA. They are typically found in viruses.
Viruses can have either single stranded RNA, single stranded DNA, double stranded RNA, or double stranded DNA.
There are two complementary strands in a double stranded RNA. Typically RNA is single stranded while DNA is double stranded.
single stranded RNA.
DNA is generally double stranded and RNA is single stranded.
double stranded DNA, single stranded DNA, double stranded RNA or single stranded RNA, depending on the virus.
DNA is double stranded and RNA is single stranded. DNA is a double helical structure,RNA is a single helical structure
DNA is single stranded and rna is double stranded
RNA or Ribonucleic Acid can occur in both single stranded and double stranded forms. It occurs in Humans most often as single stranded for copying and translating DNA. However in some viruses, double stranded RNA is their genetic code.
Most strands of RNA are single stranded, tRNA, mRNA and rRNA however dsRNA is double stranded, this form of RNA is found usually in viruses. See related links
Yes, both DNA and RNA ar double stranded but there are many types of RNA including tRNA, mRNA and rRNA.
NO, RNA is almost always single stranded. The only exception is in certain viruses that contain double-stranded RNA.
In short, NO, RNA is almost always single stranded. The only exception is in certain viruses that contain double-stranded RNA.
If the genetic material is RNA, it will usually be single stranded. Only viruses contain double stranded RNA. The main genetic material in eukaryotic cells (eg. animal cells) is DNA. Single stranded RNA copies of this (known as mRNA) are made in order for proteins to be synthesized.
t(Transfer)RNA is single-stranded.
DNA has the sugar deoxyribose and RNA has the sugar ribose. DNA is double stranded and RNA is single stranded.
dna is double stranded and rna is single stranded
DNA is double stranded and RNA is single stranded.
They both consist of long chain nucleotide units . RNA is normally single stranded but even double stranded RNA exist and they are similar to DNA . This double stranded DNA forms genetic material of some viruses. Both the DNA and double stranded RNA has two poly nucleotide chain twisted around each other.
ANSWER There are only two differences between RNA and DNA and that is the substitution of Thymine (in DNA) with Uracil (in RNA). Although DNA is mostly double stranded and RNA mostly single stranded, there are BOTH single stranded DNA and double stranded RNA amongst the viruses. It is one of the major levels used to classify viruses. The other difference is, in DNA 2-deoxy-D-ribose is used in the spine while in RNA just plain… Read More
DNA is double stranded while RNA is single stranded. DNA uses thymine but RNA uses uracil.
No, HIV is a retrovirus - it has a single-stranded RNA genome.
1. DNA is double stranded, RNA is single stranded (only true in cells - viruses can also use single stranded DNA and double stranded RNA) 2. DNA contains deoxyribose sugar, RNA contains ribose sugar 3. DNA contains thyamine base, RNA contains uracil base
DNA is double stranded whereas RNA is single stranded . They are different in their functioning as well .
DNA is double stranded while RNA is single stranded.:D
single stranded RNA (positive sense)
it is the otehr way around
The sugar (ribose vs deoxyribose) is different in RNA and DNA, respectively. Also RNA is single stranded and DNA is double stranded.
A brief on the central dogma first: double stranded DNA >> single stranded RNA >> proteins Some exceptions (or violations) to the central dogma of molecular biology are: Some microorganisms only contain RNA (and have no DNA) Some have RNA that is reverse transcripted into DNA and then back into RNA Some viruses have single stranded DNA Some viruses have double stranded RNA
The other way around - generally.
DNA is double stranded (2 strands) whereas RNA is single stranded. (In some forms of RNA, the single strand will self-hybridise - bind to itself, creating sections which could be called double stranded)
It depends what you mean by double stranded. If you mean two separate RNA strands, perfectly complementary to one another and existing as a basepaired structure in the cytoplasm, then no. Double stranded RNA like that only occurs in some types of viruses (and cells infected by them... so I guess the cytoplasm of a cell infected by a double stranded virus might have a lot of this kind of double stranded RNA). However, if… Read More
1. RNA is usually single-stranded, and DNA is double-stranded. 2. RNA has ribose, not deoxyribose. 3. RNA has uracil instead of thymine.
RNA and DNA are essentially the same. The only differences (that I know of) are that in RNA thyamine is replaced with uracil, and RNA is single stranded while DNA is double stranded
DNA is usually double stranded and RNA is usually single stranded but there are exections to both cases
Viruses have their own genome which can be made of RNA or DNA, so some do contain DNA. Some viruses, but not all. All viruses have some sort of nucleic acid, whether single-stranded DNA, double-stranded DNA, single-stranded RNA, or double-stranded RNA.
DNA is double standard. RNA is only single stranded.
A VIRUS is a 100 times smaller than a bacteria. A virus particle, also known as a virion, is essentially nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) enclosed in a protein shell or coat. Viruses may have double-stranded DNA, double-stranded RNA, single-stranded DNA or single-stranded RNA
in humans there is one strand of RNA, hence the name single-stranded RNA. However, in some viruses (such as HIV), there are double-stranded RNA made by the enzyme transcriptase.
RNA is single stranded and has Uracil instead of Thymine. DNA is double stranded and has Thymine, not Uracil.
1. The sugar in RNA is ribose instead of deoxyribose 2. Rna is single stranded and DNA is double stranded 3. Rna has uracil instead of thymine.
RNA is single stranded. DNA is double stranded. There are many types of RNA including mRNA, tRNA, and rRNA. mRNA and tRNA are involved in protein synthesis and the process of translation. mRNA and tRNA bind to the ribosome and form polypeptides or proteins that are released into the cell.
Yes, that is correct.
Well, the main difference between RNA and DNA is that RNA is single-stranded and DNA is double-stranded. But on top of that, adenine is replaced with a different protein in RNA.
Double stranded, single stranded. DNA can be described as having a double helix structure.
No. Only DNA is double stranded ... that's so it's second function of self-replication will work.
RNA is single stranded and DNA is double stranded forming a double helix. Also ,the structure of the RNA nucleotide has a ribose , phosphate and a base while DNA has deoxyribose a phosphate and a base . In RNA uracil replaces thymine .
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DNA AND RNA IN HELIX: DNA is double stranded whereas RNA is single stranded. DNA has sugar ribose and RNA has deoxyribose. DNA has base thymine and RNA has uracil
mRNA, or messenger RNA is single stranded, and so are transfer RNA, snRNA, hnRNA, and ribosomal RNA. The exception are some viral RNA's, that can be double stranded. Remember that despite having Uracil instead of Thymine, RNA can base pair anyway, just like in the case of the beforementioned RNA-viruses.
