Nucleotide metabolism

Post by Young » Mon Aug 19, 2013 12:13 am

Hi

What is nucleotide metabolism important for? Is it different from energy metabolism where foods are converted into something necessary for catabolism (energy harvest) and anabolism (cell construction)?

I would appreciate it if you could list up functions or roles of nucleotide metabolism.

Thanks!

they are important mainly for DNA replication and of course for transcription

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
