What is the difference between an amino acid and a nucleic acid?
An amino acid is the monomer of proteins, and a nucleic acid is genetic material.
A nucleic acid.
Deoxypentose nucleic acid is a former term for deoxyribose nucleic acid. It is the same.
An amino acid is the monomer used to create proteins. Nucleotides are the basic unit used to make nucleic acids (such as DNA). Therefore an amino acid is to a protein as a nucleotide is to a nucleic acid.
The nucleic acid that carries the amino acid to the ribosome in translation is the tRNA.
Amino acid is the building block for proteins, NOT nucleic acid. Having said that, amino acid is the building block for ALL proteins.
Protein is a molecule that is made up of amino acids and that is needed to build up and repair body structures and to regulate processes in the body, While nucleic acid is a molecule made up of subunits called nucleotides.
No. A nucleic acid is made up of nucleotides. Proteins are made up of amino acids.
There are no amino acids in desoxy ribo nucleic acid: its is (desoxy)-ribose (carbohydrate) and nucleic acid not amino!
Nucleic acid-Nucleotide Protein-Amino Acid Carbohydrate-Monosaccharide
amino acids contain an amine and a carboxylic acid
amino acids are monomers of protein but amino accid residues are precursors of amino acids.
DNA is a nucleic acid composed of base pairs used for information storage and fibrous proteins are proteins composed of amino acids used for structure.

In amino acid and nucleic acid
First we convert the nucleic acid into a messenger RNA, mRNA, by the process of transcription. Then, in the ribosome, we convert this mRNA unto a polypeptide ( the amino acid sequence ) by the process of translation.
There is none. DNA is a nucleic acid composed of nucleotides. There are no amino acids in DNA.
This is actually false. DNA strands that codes for amino acids do so using 3 nucleic acids to encode an amino acid. Since there are 4 nucleic acids with 3 positions each, there are 64 possible nucleic acid "words". There are only 20 amino acids that are directly coded by these 3-nucleic-acid-words. All 64 "words" are valid. but the number of nucleic acid "spellings" that code for a particular amino acid varies from 1 to… Read More
a lipid is a fatty acid or insoluble organic molecule while amino acid is the basic unit of proteins.
The basic structure of an amino acid is HXN-CHR-CO2H, where, in the 20 most common biological amino acids, X=hydrogen. The R group attached to the amino acid base is what makes up the difference.
Assuming that you are talking about the amino acids that are synthesized from tRNA, the difference between one amino acid and another is the 3 letter RNA sequence that calls for the acid: UUG would call for one acid, while AAC will most likely call for another.
Protein is that stuff that is in food. Amino acid will kill you
Neither. mRNA and tRNA are nucleic acids, not amino acids.

Ribose and amino acid is not related. Ribose is the pentose found in RNA, which is a nucleic acid. Amino acid, on the other hand, is the basic building block of proteins.
nucleic acids is the DNA in the nucleus and amino acids help ribosomes produce protien for a cell.
Neither. They are their own class of organic chemical.
It depends on what protein you want to make. There's no 1 important nucleic acid they are all important. One amino acid is made of a codon and that codon is made of 3 nucleic acids and the start-codon, almost every protein starts with this, is: AUG, the amino acid is called methionine.
Prions do not have any DNA or nucleic acid, but viroid's contain both. This is the primary difference between the two.
The job of nucleic acid is to assemble amino acids for making proteins for the body. 8^)
No, RNA is made of nucleic acid.
Monomer of protein = amino acid monomer of nucleic acid is a nucleotide, which is made up of a sugar, phosphate, and a nitrogen base.
RNA is a polymer of ribonucleic acids. Amino acids are the monomers of proteins.
While they are derived from Deoxyribose nucleic acid triplets, the thereby derived amino-acid sequences are used to form proteins.
Aspartate is an amino acid present in aspartame.
Nucleotides are to Nucleic Acid or Fatty Acids are to Triglycerides
Nucleotides are the building blocks of nucleic acids.
amino acids only contain carbon,hydrogen,oxygen and nitrogen. they do not contain phosphorus and cannot be incorporated. the ion phosphoric acid is found in nucleic acid.
No, definitely not. An amino acid is a building block, a constituent, the base unit of polypeptides and thus of proteins. There are 20 different amino acids (valine, lysine, aspartate, glutamate, glycine, tryptophan, phenylalanine and so on). An amino acid has a central carbon group, attached to which are an amine group (NH2), a carboxylic acid group (COOH), a hydrogen and an R group. The R groups is the only part that differs from amino… Read More
Amino acid sequences can identify the source of a virus by determining which class the virus belongs to. It can also tell the type of nucleic acid.

Which item does not belong in the folwing nitrogen amino acid organic compound protein nucleic acid?
protein - amino acid starch - carbohydrates dna- nucleotides (nucleic acid)
No. Adenosine triphosphate. A modified ( two more phosphate groups ) nucleic acid.
The nucleic acid is a protein found in RNA and DNA to determine our genes . Edit: NUCLEIC ACIDS ARE NOT PROTEINS. Do they have amino groups? No. Are they made out of Amino acids? no. Nucleic acids are polymers which are also known as RNA and DNA. They contain all of the information of the body.
Amino Acids have the following structure: R | | | H2N----------C----------COOH | | H There are bonds between each element/goup and the R and H should be bonded to the Carbon The difference between each amino acid lies in the variable "R" group that you see at the top. Each amino acid has a different combination of elements that make it unique from the others
Amino acid molecule is a biologically important organic compounds. Protein molecule are large biological molecules that has a long chain of amino acids.
