Is nucleic acid a macromolecule?
Yes, as it is composed of three monomers; a sugar, a nitrogenous base and a phosphate group.
Nucleic acid is a macromolecule made up of the bases Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, and Thymine in DNA, and Uracil replacing Thymine in RNA. The backbone of each nucleic acid is made up of Ribose in RNA and Deoxyribose in DNA. A phosphate molecule links each nucleotide to form the long chain macromolecule. Dioxyribonucleic acid constis of two complimentary polynucleotide chains bound about an alphahelix with crossbounds of hydrogen with nitrogen bases.
A nucleic acid is a macromolecule composed of chains of monomeric nucleotides. In biochemistry these molecules carry genetic information or form structures within cells. The most common nucleic acids are deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). 2 examples of nucleic acids as said before are DNA and RNA.
