Nucleotide

Nucleotides are organic molecules that serve as the monomers, or subunits, of nucleic acids like DNA and RNA. The building blocks of nucleic acids, nucleotides are composed of a nitrogenous base, a five-carbon sugar, and at least one phosphate group. Nucleotides serve to carry packets of energy within the cell. In the form of the nucleoside triphosphates, nucleotides play central roles in metabolism. In addition, nucleotides participate in cell signaling, and are incorporated into important cofactors of enzymatic reactions.

Definition of nucleotide in the English dictionary
