How are the structures of RNA and DNA similar?

Their sugar-phosphate backbones are formed by phosphodiester linkages between the phosphate group of one nucleotide and the hydroxyl group on the sugar of the adjacent nucleotide.

The sugar molecule in both DNA and RNA is ribose.

Adenine pairs with uracil in both.

In both, the –OH group on carbon 2 of ribose stabilizes the sugar molecule.
