Why is DNA turned into RNA?
DNA stands for deoxyribo-nucleic acid. It is the extremely long molecule that contains the body's genetic code. When copying a gene to make a protein, a strand of ribo-nucleic acid is made - RNA. There are three types of RNA: Messenger, Tranfer and Ribosomal. in microbes (usually bacteria0, the genetic material isn't contained within a nucleus. You should research what a plasmid is to clarify your question.
What is the form of RNA that carries the code from the DNA to the site where the proteins is assembled?
A retrovirus is a virus that injects RNA into the cell, the RNA then goes through reverse-transcription. It gets turned into DNA and splices with the host cells DNA. Then the cell will make more RNA and produce protien. A provirus just injects DNA and either goes through the lytic cycle or the lysogenic cycle.
DNA and RNA are strands of nucleotides. DNA is a double-stranded nucleotide, and RNA is a single-stranded nucleotide. Both DNA and RNA are known as nucleic acids. DNA in most cases has control on the genetic information of the cell where as RNA is produced by DNA strands to perform specific functions.
What is a difference between RNA and DNA molecules Is it DNA is composed of nucleotides while RNA is not RNA contains ribose instead of deoxyribose sugar RNA is double stranded?
There are some differences between DNA and RNA 1) RNA is usually single stranded whereas DNA is double stranded 2) DNA ( Deoxyribosenucleic acid) has one less oxygen atom than RNA (Ribosenucleic acid) 3) The nucleotides in DNA differ from an RNA strand as DNA contains a Thymine nucleotide and RNA contains an Uracil nucleotide.
