The three components that make up a nucleotide are a sugar molecule, a phosphate molecule and one of the four nitrogenous bases. These three components form the double helix shape of DNA. More »

The five-carbon sugar found in DNA nucleotides is called 2?-deoxyribose. It is similar to the ribose, a sugar found in RNA. Deoxyribose has one fewer oxygen molecule. Ribose and deoxyribose are the only five-carbon sugar... More »

The three units that make up a nucleotide are phosphates, a five-carbon sugar and a nucleotide base. Five nucleotide bases make up nucleotides: adenine, thymine, guanine, cytosine and uracil. More »

The essential components of a nucleotide are a pentose (five carbon sugar), a nitrogenous base and one to three phosphate groups. The combinations of possible pentoses, bases and phosphate groups create several different... More »

The three components of a nucleotide are the nitrogenous base, the five-carbon sugar and the phosphate group. In turn, the nucleotides are the building components of both DNA and RNA. More » Science Chemistry

The subunit of DNA is called a nucleotide. A nucleotide is the basic subunit in a nucleic acid and consists of a pentose sugar, a phosphate and a heterocyclic amine. More »

A nucleotide is composed of a nitrogenous base, a sugar and a phosphate group. Nucleotides are the basic components of genetic materials, such as DNA and RNA. More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA
