Nucleic acids exhibit secondary structure. Describe through Wetson Crick Model.
• DNA is made up of two polypeptide chains, arranged in double helix.
• The backbone is of sugar phosphate while the nitrogenous bases are present on the inner side.
• These nitrogenous bases pairs to each other by H bonds. These H bond confers for the stability of helix.

What is the difference between a nucleotide and nucleoside? Give two examples of each with their structure.Biology - Exemplar
When you take cells or tissue pieces and grind them with an acid in a mortar and pestle, all the small biomolecules dissolve in the acid. Proteins, polysaccharides and nucleic acids are insoluble in mineral acid and get precipitated. The acid soluble compounds include aminoacids, nucleosides, small sugars etc. When one adds a phosphate group to a nucleoside, one gets another acid soluble biomolecule calledBiology - Exemplar
