What enzymes are used in translation?
The enzyme aminoacyl tRNA synthetase binds the correct amino acid to the tRNA which is then carried to the ribosome.The ribosome is a cellular component that is composed of RNA and proteins. The RNA component is known as the rybozyme and performs a catalytic reaction. They rybozyme performs hydrolysis of phosphodiester bonds and also catalyze the aminotransferase activity of the ribosome.

What does a nucleotide code for?
DNA nucleotides 'code' for RNA copies of the DNA strand, but the true 'coding' of nucleotides happen in the ribosome where amino acids are matched to the RNA nucleotides. Nucleotides in DNA are only are present to store genetic data. When a particular gene needs to be used or a protein needs to be made, a RNA copy of the DNA will be made, using the slightly different RNA nucleotides (adenine, uracil, cytosine and guanine). This copy then leaves the nucleus and travels to the ribosome, where the RNA nucleotides are used to assemble amino acids into proteins. Each amino acid matches up to a three-nucleotide sequence.

Which nucleotides are used to build DNA?
The nucleotides used to build DNA are Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, and Thymine. For RNA, there is no Thymine; it is replaced with another nucleotide called Uracil. These are actually the names of the nitrogenous bases that nucleotides contain. A nucleotide is made up of a Deoxyribose Sugar, a Phosphate Molecule, and a Nitrogenous Base. We refer to them though by the name of their nitrogenous base.
Covalent bonds are weaker than the hydrogen bonds used to hold water molecules together-?
Asked in Biology
The weak chemical bonds importat in holding the DNA double helix together is the?
The two strands of DNA nucleotides are held together by hydrogen bonds between complimentary nitrogen bases. Adenine pairs with guanine and cytosine pairs with thymine. When it is time for a cell to reproduce, and during protein synthesis, an enzyme called helicase breaks the hydrogen bonds between the two strands. This way DNA can be replicated in preparation for cell reproduction or it can be used as a template for protein synthesis.
Are nucleotides used in molecules like ATP that are involved in energy transfer?
There are molecules like ATP which contains nucleotides, called nucleoside triphosphates. These molecules are nucleotides with two extra phosphates (total of three because of the phosphate group on a nucleotide) which give the molecule energy. Energy is needed during DNA replication when new nucleotides are forming on the old strand in the replication bubble.
