Usually, guanine binds to the nucleobase cytosine, but sometimes there are instances where four guanine bases can associate into a tetrad, or four-stranded structure.

This reaction chemically cuts the labeled Salmonella DNA at all adenine and guanine sites in the DNA chain.
Zaikov co-wrote the papers reviewing fields of ozone applications, exploring the role of hydrogen binding in transition metal complex catalysts, and calculating the geometrical and electronic structure of adenine, cytosine, guanine, tymin and uracyl.
[FIGURE 1 OMITTED] [FIGURE 2 OMITTED] At r=1/50, decrease of intensity was observed for the guanine band at 1710(20%), thymine at 1649(37%), adenine at 1610(35%), cytosine at 1492(14%), [PO.
The four molecular building blocks of DNA are adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T).
We have recently demonstrated in collaboration with Anthony Pegg (Penn State University) for the first time that human alkyl guanine transferase can repair interstrand cross-linked DNA duplexes containing an alkyl linker of 7 methylene groups, whereas the protein is not able to repair a 4 carbon cross-link, and this work was recently published in the journal Biochemistry.
Attached to each sugar is one of four chemical bases: adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine C.
