      C (cytosine): C stands for cytosine, a DNA nucleotide that which is one member of the base pair in DNA consisting of guanine and cytosine. This base pair is conventionally abbreviated G-C (or GC). The other base pair in DNA is adenine and thymine which is conventionally abbreviated A-T (or AT). Jiali Gao received a B.S. in Chemistry from Beijing University in He came to Purdue University through a Graduate Program of 43 students, arranged by William von E. Doering, and obtained a Ph.D. in under the guidance of William L. Jorgensen.

      Of the four nucleobases in DNA, cytosine is the simplest to model. Its angular geometry is two dimensional and it has just a single six-sided ring. Here's the molecular model done the Wikipedia way: It's not that hard to make a cytosine molecule from . The four nitrogenous bases in DNA are adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine. DNA structure nucleic acid nucleotides hydrogen bond double helix deoxyribose adenine guanine thymine cytosine The structure of DNA is actually a fairly simple thing to understand but to begin with this we need to start off with what are the building blocks of DNA.

Cytosine (/ ˈ s aɪ t ə ˌ s iː n,-ˌ z iː n,-ˌ s ɪ n /; C) is one of the four main bases found in DNA and RNA, along with adenine, guanine, and thymine (uracil in RNA). It is a pyrimidine derivative, with a heterocyclic aromatic ring and two substituents attached (an amine group at position 4 and a keto group at position 2).

The nucleoside of cytosine is Watson-Crick base Chemical formula: C₄H₅N₃O. Cytosine arabinoside is extensively anabolized in cells; the mono- di- and triphosphate derivatives are formed and some incorporation into internal nucleotides in DNA occurs.

The drug-induced inhibition of DNA synthesis has been attributed to the competitive inhibition of DNA polymerase by cytosine arabinoside triphosphate (41, 42).

D.J. Brown, in Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry, Cytosine [4-aminopyrimidin-2(1H)-one]. Cytosine was isolated from hydrolysis of calf thymus in and by its structure was known and it had been synthesized from 2-ethylthiopyrimidin-4(3 H) acid hydrolysis of ribonucleic acid gives nucleotides, among which are two cytidylic acids, 2′- and 3′-phosphates of.

Cytarabine, also known as cytosine arabinoside (ara-C), is a chemotherapy medication used to treat acute myeloid leukemia (AML), acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. It is given by injection into a vein, under the skin, or into the cerebrospinal fluid.

Study of Photochemical Cytosine to Uracil Transition via Ultrafast Photo-Cross-Linking Using Vinylcarbazole Derivatives in Duplex DNA Article (PDF Available) in Molecules 23(4) April with.

Cytosine is a pyrimidine base found in DNA and RNA that pairs with guanine. Cytosine is an aminopyrimidine that is pyrimidinone having the amino group located at position 4.

It has a role as a human metabolite, an Escherichia coli metabolite, a Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite and a mouse metabolite. It is a pyrimidine nucleobase, a. A) the nucleotide at the 3' end has a phosphate at its 3' hydroxyl. B) the nucleotide at the 3' end is a purine.

C) the nucleotide at the 5' end has a 5' hydroxyl. D) the nucleotide at the 5' end has a phosphate on its 5' hydroxyl. E) the nucleotide at the 5' end is a pyrimidine. Abstract. Amongst the most important detrimental effects of light on living systems are mutations, aging, and carcinogenesis.

In order to study these effects of light on man it is necessary to focus attention upon the effect of UV light on the genetic material, namely, by: However, these bonds would form only between certain base pairs- Adenine with thymine, and guanine with cytosine. Base Pairing The ability of their model to explain Chargaff''s observations increased Watson and Crick's confidence that they had come to the.

(also 2-hydroxyaminopyrimidine), a natural organic compound. A pyrimidine base, cytosine occurs as white crystals or thin, lustrous platelets.

Its molecular weight is It is found in all living cells as a component of nucleotides—that is, compounds that form nucleic acids, coenzymes, and certain other biologically active substances. However, the present quantum chemical study shows that the formation of thymine is limited because of the inefficiency of the methylation of pyrimidine and its oxidized derivatives in an H{sub 2}O ice, as supported by the laboratory studies.

Assessment of Cytosine Arabinoside as an Antiviral Agent in Humans Article (PDF Available) in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy 6(5) December with 24. Cytosine, a nitrogenous base derived from pyrimidine that occurs in nucleic acids, the heredity-controlling components of all living cells, and in some coenzymes, substances that act in conjunction with enzymes in chemical reactions in the body.

Cytosine is one of several types of bases that are incorporated into the nucleic acid c acids are composed of a five-carbon sugar. Cytosine is one of the 5 main nucleobases used in storing and transporting genetic information within a cell in the nucleic acids DNA and RNA.

In DNA and RNA, cytosine is paired with r, it is unstable, and can change into uracil (spontaneous deamination).This can lead to a point mutation if not repaired by the DNA repair enzymes such as uracil glycosylase, which cleaves a uracil Chemical formula: C₄H₅N₃O.

Formula: C4H5N3O. See also DNA, RNA cy•to. In many organisms, nuclear DNA is methylated at cytosine residues, resulting in 5-methylcytosine. The derivatives of purine are called adenine and guanine, and the derivatives of pyrimidine are called thymine, cytosine and uracil.

In DNA the bases pair to form a ladder-like structure, with adenine paired with thymine and guanine with cytosine. Cytosine (C) is one of the four main bases found in DNA and RNA, along with adenine, guanine, and thymine (uracil in RNA).

Cytosine is a pyrimidine, which forms three hydrogen bonds to .Guanine can be hydrolyzed with strong acid to glycine, ammonia, carbon dioxide, and carbonguanine gets deaminated to become xanthine.

Guanine oxidizes more readily than adenine, the other purine-derivative base in DNA. Its high melting point of °C reflects the intermolecular hydrogen bonding between the oxo and amino groups in the molecules in the al formula: C₅H₅N₅O.

The complementary strand would contain bases in the sequence thymine, guanine, guanine, and cytosine. Further Explanation: The DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid is a structure composed of two strands both of which are arranged in a helix.

Each strand is a long stretch of nucleotides that are linked to each other through a phosphodiester bond.
