Nucleic acids (DNA or RNA) are polymers of nucleotides – each nucleotide consists of a pentose sugar, a phosphate group and one of the nitrogenous bases (purines and pyrimidines). Nucleic acids function in encoding, transmitting and expressing genetic information in either the double-stranded form (mostly for DNA) or in single-stranded form (mostly for RNA).
