DNA

Also known as: 9007-49-2, NUCLEIC ACID, NA SALT (YEAST), FT-0624518
Molecular Formula: C15H31N3O13P2   Molecular Weight: 523.366464   InChIKey: AWBASQCACWFTGD-UHFFFAOYSA-N
A deoxyribonucleotide polymer that is the primary genetic material of all cells. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms normally contain DNA in a double-stranded state, yet several important biological processes transiently involve single-stranded regions. DNA, which consists of a polysugar-phosphate backbone possessing projections of purines (adenine and guanine) and pyrimidines (thymine and cytosine), forms a double helix that is held together by hydrogen bonds between these purines and pyrimidines (adenine to thymine and guanine to cytosine).   From: MeSH
