General FunctionBiological information storage and information transfer
Specific FunctionDNA is the molecule of heredity, as it is responsible for the genetic propagation of most inherited traits. It is a polynucleic acid that carries genetic information on cell growth, division, and function. DNA consists of two long strands of nucleotides twisted into a double helix and held together by hydrogen bonds. The sequence of nucleotides determines hereditary characteristics. Each strand serves as the template for subsequent DNA replication and as a template for mRNA production, leading to protein synthesis via ribosomes.
PathwayMap03030 DNA replication Map03020 RNA transcription
ReactionDNA + DNA polymerase + nNTP = 2 DNA + nNDP DNA + RNA polymerase + NTP = mRNA + nNDP
