Also know as nucleotide bases/nitrogenous bases. Nucleobases are the parts of DNA and RNA that may be involved in pairing. The primary nucleobases are cytosine, guanine, adenine (DNA and RNA), thymine (DNA) and uracil (RNA), abbreviated as C, G, A, T, and U, respectively. They are usually simply called bases in genetics.

Adenine Adenine is a nucleobase (a purine deriva-tive) with a variety of roles in biochemistry including cellular respiration, in the form of both the energy-rich adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and the cofactors nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), and protein synthesis, as a chemical component of DNA and RNA. It is complementary to either thymine in DNA or uracil in RNA.
