Nucleobases, also known as;nitrogenous bases;or often simply;bases, are nitrogen-containing biological compounds that form;nucleosides, which in turn are components of;nucleotides, with all of these;monomersconstituting the basic building blocks of;nucleic acids. The ability of nucleobases to form;base pairs;and to stack one upon another leads directly to long-chain helical structures such as;ribonucleic acid;(RNA) and;deoxyribonucleic acid;(DNA).
Five nucleobases—adenine;(A)cytosine;(C)guanine;(G)thymine;(T), and;uracil;(U)—are called;primary;or;canonical. They function as the fundamental units of the;genetic code, with the bases A, G, C, and T being found in DNA while A, G, C, and U are found in RNA. Thymine and uracil are identical excepting that T includes a;methyl group;that U lacks.
