Description Nucleic acids are polymers of nucleotides that are the building blocks of DNA and RNA. RNA is a nucleic acid that is made up of ribose, phosphate, and nitrogenous bases. Nucleic acids are used in many biological processes, such as protein synthesis, DNA replication, and mRNA translation. Heterocyclic compounds are organic molecules that have a hetero atom (nitrogen or oxygen) in the ring. These compounds are used in many biological processes, such as DNA replication and protein synthesis.
