There are two varieties of beings on our planet Earth. Inanimate or non living and animate or living. All living beings have life in them. It was believed that due to a very unique combination of forces from the cosmos certain elements combined in such a fashion that the life generated in them and they are called living beings.
Plants, animals from uni cellular to macro bodies are formed from the repetition of these unique combination of elements. The amazing part of these living being is their capacity to absorb the energy, store, convert and utilize according to the needs and develop.
However, long or short the living cells have a definite life for themselves. After that the living cell becomes again the individual elements that it is composed of. During the life time the activity of building and the activity of dying go simultaneously. The branch of chemistry that is dedicated to study these phenomenon is known as bio chemistry. A number of scientists worked hard and unlocked so many avenues and found out the molecules and their structures, that help to sustain the vital force. Among those molecules one of the important group of compounds are called the nucleotides.

RNA exist as a single strand. The nucleoside are arranged in the same way as in DNA. The loop is called a hairpin which will occur in secondary or tertiary structures and is formed only when there is a complimentary unit in the single strand
The image shown below is the RNA structure of yeast cells.
