RECALL What is the structural difference between thymine and uracil?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The structural difference between thymine and uracil is to be explained.

Concept interpretation:

A nucleotide comprises a nitrogenous base, five-membered carbon sugar, and a phosphate group. There are two types of nitrogenous bases:

Purine base: There are four purine bases, namely, adenine, guanine, hypoxanthine, and xanthine.

Pyrimidine base: There are four pyrimidine bases, namely uracil, thymine, cytosine, and orotic acid.

Explanation of Solution

Thymine: It is one of the nitrogenous bases that belongs to the pyrimidine base class. This nuclear base is associated with a nucleic acid present in DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). Thymine consists of one methyl group at carbon-5.
