What are nucleotides made of?
Ribo-nucleotides [that make up Ribo Nucleic Acid] comprise ribose sugars, phosphate groups for chain bonding, and nitrogenous bases for information content and exchange. 2' deoxy-ribose sugar moieties comprise Deoxy-ribose Nucleic Acid. If a nucleoside is different from a nucleotide I haven't been able to find it. Nucleic acids are made up of nucleotides. Each nucleotide is composed of a sugar + a phosphate + a nitrogen base. The nitrogenous bases are Adenine which pairs with Thymine and Cytosine which pairs with Guanine. Nucleotide polymers, (chains of nucleotides) are made up of nucleotides linked to the -OH group on the 3' carbon of one nucleotide and the phosphate on the 5' of the following nucleotide. The two chains in a double helix run antiparallel to one another.
