In a now famous and highly cited one-page article appearing in the prestigious scientific journal entitled Nature, Watson and Crick (1953) discussing their structure for the salt of deoxyribose nucleic acid or DNA, note that the water content of the structure is "rather high" (p.
Briefly OH* were generated in a non-enzymic system comprised of deoxyribose (2.
Hydroxyl radical scavenging activity assay: The hydroxyl radical scavenging activity of DMHBR was determined by studying the competition between deoxyribose and DMHBR for hydroxyl radical generated by Fenton's reaction (27).
The hydroxyl radical scavenging activity was reported as percentage inhibition of deoxyribose degradation and calculated as % scavenging activity = [(Ac- As)/ Ac] x 100.
This high antioxidant activity found in the assays involved the formation of hydroxyl radicals, deoxyribose degradation, and DNA oxidation processes.
The OH radical scavenging activity was carried out by measuring the competition between deoxyribose and the various extracts from leaves of P.
may be an important mediator of free radical-dependent toxicity because of its strong oxidizing properties toward proteins, nonprotein thiols, deoxyribose, and membrane phospholipids.

They began their article with the modest statement: "We wish to suggest a structure for the salt of deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA).
Moreover, ribose and deoxyribose form part of the structural framework of RNA and DNA.
The linking or joining together of two DNA, which are nucleic acids containing deoxyribose (sugar), consisting of complex molecules with little oxygen and present in chromosomes of all plant, human and animal cells and carrying in coded form specific instructions for passing on of hereditary characteristics in the body for which the technology is carried out) molecules in a well and fully autoclaved, sterilized test tube and the subsequent insertion of this union of individual molecule into a living thing, whether it is of plant, human or animal origin.
RNA is similar to DNA, but uracil substitutes for adenine and noose substitutes for deoxyribose.
adenine, guanine, uracil, cytosine, or thymine) linked with a phosphate group (P042-, a phosphorus atom linked to four oxygen atoms; the molecule can donate 2 electrons hence its 2- charge) and either a molecule of ribose (a five-carbon ringed sugar) or deoxyribose (a ribose lacking one oxygen atom).
