What is the base that is found in RNA but not in DNA?
Uracil. Uracil instead of Thymine. Uracil.
How does uracil differ from thymine?
In RNA, uracil is substitued for thymine. In DNA, there is no uracil present. Thymine pairs with Adenine, and Cytosine pairs with Guanine. Uracil is ONLY in RNA. Never will uracil be in DNA. Chemically, uracil only differers from thymine in that it does not have a methyl group attached to C5, but only a hydrogen. Hope this helps! ...
