Uracil. Uracil is present in RNA and binds to adenine whereas thymine is present in DNA and binds to adenine.
Besides, what is the part of the molecule for which DNA is named?
1 — Phosphate groups which are negatively charged and give DNA molecules a negative charge. 2 — A 5 carbon sugar, deoxyribose (hence the name deoxyribonucleic acid). There are two sugars found in nucleic acids; ribose is found in RNA (ribonucleic acid) and deoxyribose in DNA.
What bases are found in a DNA molecule?
The four bases found in DNA are adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) and thymine (T). These four bases are attached to the sugar-phosphate to form the complete nucleotide, as shown for adenosine monophosphate. Adenine pairs with thymine and guanine pairs with cytosine.
Which is not a nitrogenous base in DNA?
Cytosine is found in both DNA and RNA, but thymine is only found in DNA and URACIL is only found in RNA. Uracil is the Base found only in RNA. There are 4 nitrogenous bases found in nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) viz Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine & Thymine, Of this Thymine is replaced by Uracil in RNA.
