How to use Nucleotides in a sentence
The enzyme DNA polymerase joins the new nucleotides to each other by strong covalent bonds, forming the sugar-phosphate backbone.
As a result, each of us has a unique genetic code that typically differs in about three million nucleotides from every other person.
G-proteins are so called because they bind the guanine nucleotides guanosine triphosphate (GTP) and guanosine triphosphate (GTP) and guanosine diphosphate (GDP ).
By contrast the length of an uncoiled DNA macromolecule with its 1.5 x 10 8 nucleotides is about 5 cm.
The phosphorylation of purine nucleosides to form nucleotides by nucleoside kinase is an alternative pathway of purine salvage.Advertisement
Explaining the basics of DNA and Genetics Human DNA contains 3 billion nucleotides and is wound up into a tight double helix spiral.
Each strand is made up of a series of small molecules called nucleotides.
The window of sequence includes 300 nucleotides up and downstream of the cluster sequence.
This work therefore implicates cyclic nucleotides in this process.
For example, RNA polymerase makes RNA out of single nucleotides.Advertisement
These four different nucleotides form the four characters in the DNA code.
The enzyme is modulated by adenine and guanine nucleotides, although it is difficult to make much sense of the observed effects.
The phosphorylation of purine nucleosides to form nucleotides by nucleoside kinase is an alternative pathway of purine nucleosides to form nucleotides by nucleoside kinase is an alternative pathway of purine salvage.
It also provides nucleotides, which also occur naturally in breast milk and are believed to boost the immune system.
Much as sentences are composed of long strings of words, each made of letters; genes can be thought of as long strings of chemical words, each made of chemical letters, called nucleotides.Advertisement
Trinucleotide repeat expansion-A sequence of three nucleotides that is repeated too many times in a section of a gene.
The scans revealed that a section of chromosome 16 and about 600,000 nucleotides were missing in the genomes of five children with autism.
