What Makes up DNA?


DNA is made up of a few basic chemicals that combine in different patterns to produce genes, switches, and switch controllers. Though largely purported to have four of these chemical 'basis' DNA actually has five basis. Those are adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), thymine (T), and methylcytosine (M). These bases are stabilized by hydrogen bonds.

DNA (dezoxyribonucleic acid) components are the nucleotides.
phosphate and sugar.
The twisted ladder shape is really a "double helix" The four substances are Guanine, Adenine, Cytosine, and Thymine.
A sugar (deoxyribose, a sugar with, among other elements, 5 carbon atoms) and phosphates to bond them together.
