Adenine

Science / Biology / Adenine: One of the four nitrogen-containing bases occurring in nucleotides, the building blocks of the organic macromolecule group known as nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). Adenine is also the base in the energy carrying molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the energy coin of the cell.

Adenine (A)

Science / Genetics / Adenine (A): A nitrogenous base, one member of the base pair a- t (adenine- thymine). MORE

N-6 Furfuryladenine

Health / Vitamins / N-6 Furfuryladenine: Also known as Kinetin. MORE

Nicotine Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NADP)

Science / Biology / Nicotine Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NADP): A substance to which electrons are transferred from photosystem I during photosynthesis; the addition of the electrons reduces NADP, which acquires a hydrogen ion to form NADPH, which is a storage for MORE

Thymine (T)

Science / Genetics / Thymine (T): A nitrogenous base, one member of the base pair a- t (adenine- thymine). MORE

Uracil

Science / Biology / Uracil: The pyrimidine that replaces thymine in RNA molecules and nucleotides. MORE

Base Sequence

Science / Genetics / Base Sequence: A partnership of organic bases found in dna and rna: adenine forms a base pair with thymine (or uracil) and guanine with cytosine in a double-stranded nucleic acid molecule. MORE
