Description

Product Description

Adenine is widespread throughout animal and plant tissues combined with niacinamide, D-ribose, and phosphoric acids. It is a constituent of nucleic acids and coenzymes, such as codehydrase I and II, adenylic acid, coalaninedehydrase.

Application Notes

Adenine binds to thymine via two hydrogen bonds to assist in stabilizing the nucleic acid structures in DNA. In RNA, which is used for protein synthesis, adenine binds to uracil. Adenine forms adenosine, a nucleoside, when attached to ribose, and deoxyadenosine when attached to deoxyribose. It forms adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide, when three phosphate groups are added to adenosine. Adenosine triphosphate is used in cellular metabolism as one of the basic methods of transferring chemical energy between chemical reactions.
