There are four nucleotides that make up DNA: Adenine, Thymine, Guanine and Cytosine. There are billions of them that make up one strand of DNA. Adenine always pairs with Thymine and Guanine always pairs with Cytosine.

Also, in the Rna during DNA transcription, Uracil replaces Thymine and pairs with Adenine instead.

Adenine (A) Thymine (T) Guanine (G) Cytosine (C)

There are 2 strands of nucleotides in DNA.

DNA nucleotides. Note that adenine, thymine, cytosine and guanine are NOT nucleotides, but they are only the bases which make the nucleotides different.

Nucleotides Four nucleotides are needed to make a DNA molecule.

DNA is composed of two strands of DNA nucleotides.

There are four types of nucleotides that make up a molecule of DNA. They are adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine, named for their nitrogenous bases. The numbers and order of the nucleotides determine the genes on the molecule of DNA.

DNA itself is made up of nucleotides. Nucleotides links with each other to form a DNA chain. In the process of DNA replication, parent DNA strand needs to be duplicated. Hence, to make a new strand of DNA it requires nucleotides.

There are four nucleotides that make up DNA, each defined by the nitrogenous bases they contain. They are named adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine.

There are four different nucleotides of DNA, which can create countless combinations.

dna precursors are the thing that make up dna, nucleotides

The DNA of all living organisms is composed of the same 4 nucleotides. These 4 nucleotides make up all DNA.

Exactly one half of the number of nucleotides as are found in diploid Dna.

Nucleotides do not have DNA or RNA. DNA and RNA are composed of nucleotides.

Nucleotides are the monomer units that make up a DNA molecule. DNA nucleotides are composed of a deoxyribose sugar, a nitrogenous base, and a phosphate group.

Nucleic acids. Which are made of nucleotides. Nucleotides make up DNA... Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, and Thymine. These nucleotides are what make up the double helix of DNA. Adenine bonds with Thymine and Cytosine bonds with Guanine. Sugars and phosphates also make up DNA.

How many nucleotides are in one full twist of the DNA molecule?

billions per strand of DNA

The three things that make up DNA are included in the nucleotides (which make up DNA).Nucleotides are made of these three things:phosphatedeoxyribose sugarnitrogonous base

There are two strands of DNA in a DNA double helix, each consisting of many nucleotide subunits. They are like building blocks that make up the DNA molecule, which would then be like a block tower. A 'strand of nucleotides' as you put it would basically be a DNA molecule (if they are deoxyribose nucleotides) or if they are ribose nucleotides, they would be a RNA molecule. DNA can come in double stranded helices (most of the time) or can be single stranded (as in some viruses).

No, the monomers which make up DNA are nucleotides.

Nucleotides make up nucleotides. They are what make up both DNA and RNA. DNA is what makes up the genetic code for living things, while RNA helps with gene expression.

For a sequence of 10 nucleotides, the total possibilities are: 410

A nucleotide is the basic units of DNA and RNA. The names of the four nucleotides are adenine, guanine, thymine, and cytosine. They are all attached to a sugar and phosphate.

Three consecutive nucleotides in a DNA sequence make up a codon.

None. DNA is composed of nucleotides, not amino acids. The number of nucleotides in DNA depends on the species. Human DNA has over 6 billion.

Cells tend to make mistakes copying nucleotides in the DNA.
