What is adenine?

Adenine is one of the 4 nucleobases found in DNA, along with cytosine, thymine, and guanine. It is also one of the 4 nucleobases found in RNA, along with cytosine, guanine, and uracil. Adenine is derived from purine. In DNA, adenine pairs with thymine using 2 hydrogen bonds. In addition to it's role in DNA and RNA, adenine can bond with a ribose sugar to form adenosine, which in turn is part of an important molecule called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. ATP is one of the primary molecules used to transfer energy around to the different parts of the cell. Adenine was discovered by Albrecht Kossel in 1885.
