  • Two of DNA's four bases, cytosine and adenine, can be methylated. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is represented mathematically as follows: GC skew = (G - C)/(G + C) AT skew = (A - T)/(A + T) Erwin Chargaff's work in 1950 demonstrated that, in DNA, the bases guanine and cytosine were found in equal abundance, and the bases adenine and thymine were found in equal abundance.

  • DNA and RNA molecules are each written in a language using four "letters" (four nucleotide bases), but the language used to construct proteins includes 20 "letters" (20 different amino acids). (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Mutations in the CTP synthase have been seen to confer resistance to cytotoxic drugs such as cytosine arabinoside (ara-C) in a Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell model of leukemia though such mutations were not found in human patients with ara-C resistance. (wikipedia.org)
