Abstract

The purines and pyrimidines are nitrogenous cyclic compounds that take part in several metabolic pathways in living cells including DNA and RNA biosynthesis, production of energy molecules e.g. ATP, carbohydrate metabolism, and nitrogen transport and reservoir. The ascorbate molecule acts as an antioxidant and enzyme cofactor and is involved in plant defense and growth.
