. The substance in the nucleus of the cell that stores and transmits genetic information is DNA, which stands for _________

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the full form of DNA.

Concept Introduction:

DNA is located in the nucleus of cell. Nucleus of a cell contains DNA which carries hereditary information and helps in transfer of gene of interest from parents to progeny.

RNA gets transcripted from DNA and found on ribosome for further translation. Ribosome are membrane bound organelle found in cytoplasm or in RER.

Nucleus of a cell contains DNA which carries hereditary information and helps in transfer of gene of interest from parents to progeny. It is bounded with membrane known as nuclear membrane which gets continue with rough endoplasmic reticulum which is responsible for the translation of RNA to protein.

Explanation of Solution

DNA is deoxyribonucleic acid. It is a nucleotide made of nitrogenous base attached with pentose deoxyribose sugar along with phosphoric acid which get esterified while nucleoside only contains nitrogenous base attached with pentose sugar...
