    There are 4 nucleotides that make up DNA A = Adenine T = Thymine C = Cytosine G = Guanine

    Adenine pairs with Thymine, Cytosine with Guanine.

    4 Nucleotides In Dna

  • 4 years ago

    2 deoxyadenosine 5 monophosphate

    2 deoxyguanine 5 monophosphate

    2 deoxycytidine 5 monophosphate

    2 deoxythymidine 5 monophosphate

    Note: Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine and Guanine are NOT nucleotides. They are nitrogenous bases. A nucleotide is a mono- di- or tri-phosphate group, a ribose (RNA) or de-oxyribose (DNA) sugar and a nitrogenous base. In DNA as per the original question, the incorporated nucleotides are all de-oxyribonucleic monophosphates.

    ATCG = Nucleotides of a DNA

    A pairs with T

    C pairs with G

  • 1 decade ago

    As pointed out, there are 4 bases A ( adenine), T ( Thymine), G ( guanine) and C (cytosine) .....They "compliment" each other due to their chemical makeup ( which you don't really need to know about).

    I remember the way they match up by saying

    A and T (or T and A) are STRAIGHT letters

    C and G are CURVED letters

    This is for DNA.......where there are 2 strands...one compliments the other, so where one strand will be

    AGGTAGCCA the other strand will be

    TCCATCGGT

    In RNA there is no T, but is instead replaced by a chemically similar U ( uracil)....so A matches with U ( NOT T) and U will match with A. C and G will be the same.

    AGGTAGCCA and

    UCCAUCGGU

    Hope it helps.

    A = Adenine T = Thymine C = Cytosine G = Guanine

    Adenine pairs with Thymine, Cytosine pairs with Guanine.

    actg

    a<->t

    c<->g

    i think thats how it goes, idk the full names though
