Significance of Nucleic acids


·     Nucleic acids are the molecular repositories (store houses / reserve bank) of genetic inheritance, i.e they have the ability to store and transmit information from one generation to the next.

 

·     Ultimately, every macromolecule (proteins and RNAs) of the cell is the product of information that has been stored in the nucleotide sequences of the genes.

 

·     Certain nucleotides like ribozymes have catalytic activities.

 

·     Certain purine and pyrimidine analogs are used for treating cancer and AIDS.
