Nucleotides

Introduction

Nucleotides are organic molecules that are made up of a nucleobase, a five-carbon sugar, and more than one phosphate group. Nucleotides make up the subunits of nucleic acids like DNA and RNA. DNA includes the nucleobases adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C) and guanine (G) attached to a phospho-deoxyribose sugar, whereas the RNA backbone is made up of a phospho-ribose sugar. For RNA, thymine (T) has also been replaced with uracil (U). Nucleotides can also be used as carriers of energy in the cell (as ATP, GTP, CTP, and UTP).
