ADP, adenosine diphosphate; pll, polymerase II. : acids tRNA Amino acids Functional protein (gene product) than DNA and is far less stable. It has a very short half-life (from minutes to hours) compared with that of nuclear DNA (years). Because it has a short half-life, the bases that comprise it must be continually resynthesized. Purine and pyrimidine synthesis requires a number of micronutrients as well as energy," This explains some of the symptoms of malnutrition. Among these symptoms are skin lesions.

Some amino acids can be replaced without affecting the secondary, tertiary, or quaternary structures of the protein (and, hence, its chemical and physical properties) whereas others cannot. In addition, genetic errors in amino acid sequence may pose no threat to the individual if the protein in question is of little importance in the maintenance of health and well-being, or these errors can have significant effects on health if the protein is a critical one. " This amino acid substitution affects the solubility of the hemoglobin in the red blood cell cytosol by causing an increase in the intermolecular adhesion.

Other cells have the gene but do not express it probably because their glucose promoter site is unexposed. Instead, these other cell types express a similar (but different) gene for the enzyme hexokinase. Both enzymes catalyze the phosphorylation of glucose. However, the hexokinase also catalyzes the phosphorylation of other monosaccharides. There are a number of instances in the nutrition science literature in which specific nutrients influenced the transcription of genes that encode enzymes or receptors or carriers that are important to the use of that nutrient.
