Definition of the noun adenine

What does adenine mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: adenines

  1. (biochemistry) purine base found in DNA and RNA; pairs with thymine in DNA and with uracil in RNA
    • domain: biochemistry
    • lexical domain: Substances - nouns denoting substances
    • synonym of adenine: A
    • more generic word: purine = any of several bases that are derivatives of purine
    • substance of: deoxyribonucleic acid / desoxyribonucleic acid / DNA = a long linear polymer found in the nucleus of a cell and formed from nucleotides and shaped like a double helix; ribonucleic acid / RNA = a long linear polymer of nucleotides found in the nucleus but mainly in the cytoplasm of a cell where it is associated with microsomes

Explanation

  1. Adenine is a nucleobase with a variety of roles in biochemistry including cellular respiration, in the form of both the energy-rich adenosine triphosphate and the cofactors nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and flavin adenine dinucleotide, and protein synthesis, as a chemical component of DNA and RNA. The shape of adenine is complementary to either thymine in DNA or uracil in RNA.
    • also known as Ade, Adenin, Adeninimine
  2. Adenine, named after the nucleobase adenine, is a scripting language that is cross-platform, which is developed in the context of project Haystack and Project Oxygen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in collaboration with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone.
  3. Adenine: A purine base and a fundamental unit of adenine nucleotides.
