DNA base pair; drawing shows double-stranded DNA with bonds between two pairs of nitrogen-containing bases [adenine (A) and thymine (T), and cytosine (C) and guanine (G)].
DNA base pair. Under normal circumstances, the nitrogen-containing bases adenine (A) and thymine (T) pair together, and cytosine (C) and guanine (G) pair together. The binding of these base pairs forms the structure of DNA.
