  1. Polynucleotide

    In molecular biology, a polynucleotide (from Ancient Greek πολυς (polys) 'many') is a biopolymer composed of 13 or more nucleotide monomers, covalently bonded in a chain. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid) are examples of polynucleotides with distinct biological functions. DNA consists of two chains of polynucleotides, with each chain in the form of a helix (like a spiral staircase).

  1. polynucleotide

    A polynucleotide is a biopolymer, composed of monomer units known as nucleotides, which are linked together by phosphodiester bonds. Nucleotides consist of a phosphate group, a sugar molecule (ribose in RNA, deoxyribose in DNA), and one of the four nitrogenous bases (adenine, thymine, cytosine, guanine in DNA; adenine, uracil, cytosine, guanine in RNA). Polynucleotides, such as DNA and RNA, are essential for all life because they serve as the cell’s storehouse and transmitter of genetic information.
