Do you ever wonder what builds life? Well, numerous systems, such as the central nervous system build up a living organism. And organs are within the system, such as the brain. Organs are made up of tissues such as the neural networks. And bundles of cells, such as neurons make up the tissues. Organelles, such as the nucleus makeup the cells. And molecules, such as DNA and RNA make up organelles. Atoms, such as the two carbon atom make up DNA. But many extra acids are needed to make DNA and RNA function the way they do. There are five main nucleobases that are needed, adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine and uracil. First, I will discuss the chemical composition of each of them. And I will go over the functions of each of them. The chemical composition of adenine consists of two major elements. One component of adenine consists N by H squared, also known as nitrogen multiplied by hydrogen squared. The majority of the portions of adenine compose of entirely nitrogen. And one section of adenine is N by H, also known as Nitrogen multiplied by Hydrogen. Adenine has a quite complex network of elements. The chemical formula used to calculate adenine is C5H5N5, Carbon to the fifth power, multiplied by Hydrogen to the fifth power, multiplied by Nitrogen to the fifth power. The chemical composition of guanine consists of three significant elements. One portion of guanine purely contains oxygen. Another component of guanine is N by H, squared, Nitrogen multiplied by Hydrogen
