Cytosine

Science / Biology / Cytosine: One of the pyrimidine nitrogenous bases occurring in both DNA and RNA.

Cytosine (C)

Science / Genetics / Cytosine (C): A nitrogenous base, one member of the base pair gc (guanine and cytosine) in dna. 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

Guanine (G)

Science / Genetics / Guanine (G): A nitrogenous base, one member of the base pair gc (guanine and cytosine) in dna. MORE

Nucleotide

Science / Chemistry / Nucleotide: A molecule which is a basic building block of nucleic acids and which plays a key role in energy transfer in biochemical reactions. Nucleotides consist of a five-carbon sugar, a heterocyclic nitrogen- MORE

Base Pair (BP)

Science / Genetics / Base Pair (BP): Two nitrogenous bases (adenine and thymine or guanine and cytosine) held together by weak bonds. Two strands of dna are held together in the shape of a double helix by the bonds between base pairs. MORE

Nitrogenous Base

Science / Genetics / Nitrogenous Base: A nitrogen-containing molecule having the chemical properties of a base. Dna contains the nitrogenous bases adenine (a), guanine (g), cytosine (c), and thymine (t). MORE
