Best Answer

In RNA, there are four kinds of base: adenine, guanine, cytosine and uracil. There are no thymine bases. Therefore, there are no thymine and adenine base pairs. Addtional answer:

The complimentary base of adenine in RNA is uracil which is a unmenthylated form of thymine. When menthylation occurs it becomes thymine which is paired with adenine in DNA. Thymine can also be called 5-methyluracil because it becomes thymine when methylation of uracil occurs at the 5th carbon.

Adenine pairs up with uracil instead of thymine in RNA.
