Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The D in DNA and R in RNA is one diffrence and they are both sugars, then there is a nitrogenous base that have been replaced by another one. When it come to 3d form then there is also a diffrence becuase mRNA don't base pair with it self. Out from that try answer the following: DNA RNA Sugar: _________ _________ nitrogenous base: ___________ _________ threedimensional structure: __________ __________

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright...so, mRNA is single stranded, DNA is double stranded. mRNA has the sugar ribose, DNA has the sugar deoxyribose. mRNA has the nitrogen base Uracil instead of Thymine that DNA has. mRNA leaves the nucleus, DNA does not (assuming the cell has a nucleus)...... we studied messenger RNA itself....so didn`t recognise......this much only...i do remember...
