Genetic Disorders From DNA to RNA to Protein

DNA is the genetic code.

DNA is unwound from the chromosome

RNA and DNA are both nucleic acids, but RNA is single stranded, DNA is double stranded.

RNA contains Ribose as the 5 carbon sugar in its nucleotides, while DNA has Deoxyribose

RNA has Uracil as a nitrogen base, while DNA contains Thymine.

DNA is transcribed to mRNA

mRNA is translated at the ribosome to produce a polypeptide (protein)
