DNA and RNA are both important characteristics of an organism and its successful purpose of healing and life in general. DNA has the critical task of replication and information storage within the cells of an organism. Proteins are exceptionally important as they create a mass that can later be distributed as a type of healing process. Proteins are derived from RNA following the transcription process. “Genetic information generally flows from DNA to RNA and then from RNA to protein”. This process takes place when the RNA binds to ribosomes turning the bound RNA into proteins. RNA is created from certain sections of DNA, though both DNA and RNA is very similar in structure, they differ in function. There are five different cases where DNA and RNA are very similar but also very diverse; the first situation is that “RNA can move from the nucleus to the cytoplasm for its role in protein synthesis”. The second situation is explained as, “RNA nucleotides containing sugar ribose” whereas, DNA contains deoxyribose. “Deoxyribose has one

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
