Nucleic acids are the high molecular weight phosphate rich organic molecules. In this category, we are providing the basic topics and study material for students. we will update more information in coming days.

What is Tautomerization and its changes (Basics)

A tautomer is a separate type isomer by an organic compound that has the property that it can quickly change their isomeric form by chemical reaction called tautomerization. Typically, this occurs as the migration of hydrogen atoms (protons) by an exchange of one single bond with a double bond. In solutions where tautomerism is possible, […]

Nucleic Acids are the Molecular Language of life

Nucleic acids are organic polymers, composed of monomer units known as nucleotides. Nucleotides are energy-rich compounds that drive metabolic processes in all cells. They also serve as chemical signals, key links in cellular systems that respond to hormones and other extracellular stimuli, and are structural components of a number of enzyme cofactors and metabolic intermediates. […]

Basic Components of Nucleic Acids – Purines and Pyrimidines

One of the important specialized pathways of amino acids and the synthesis of purine and pyrimidine nucleotides. These nucleotides are important for a number of reasons. Most of them, not just ATP, are the sources of energy that drive most of our reactions. ATP is the most commonly used source but GTP is used in […]
