  Nucleotide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A nucleotide is a chemical compound that consists of a heterocyclic base, a sugar, and one or more phosphate groups.
In the most common nucleotides the base is a derivative of purine or pyrimidine, and the sugar is the pentose (five-carbon sugar) deoxyribose or ribose.
Nucleotides are the structural units of RNA, DNA, and several cofactors - CoA, FAD, FMN, NAD, and NADP.

 Nucleotide
A nucleotide is the monomer structural unit of nucleotide chains that form the nucleic acids RNA and DNA, as well as several lesser nucleic acids.
Nucleotides code for proteins and enzymes as well as determine the genetic structure of life.
Nucleotides are also crucial for cellular energy transportation and transformation and in the regulation of enzymes.

The symbols and format to be used for nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence data shall conform to the requirements of paragraphs (b) through (e) of this section.
A nucleotide sequence shall be listed with a maximum of 16 codons or 60 bases per line, with a space provided between each codon or group of 10 bases.
For those nucleotide sequences that are circular in configuration, the enumeration method set forth in paragraph (c)(6) of this section remains applicable with the exception that the designation of the first base of the nucleotide sequence may be made at the option of the applicant.

 Nucleotide Metabolism
Indeed, the ability to salvage nucleotides from sources within the body alleviates any nutritional requirement for nucleotides, thus the purine and pyrimidine bases are not required in the diet.
The carbamoyl phosphate used for pyrimidine nucleotide synthesis is derived from glutamine and bicarbonate, within the cytosol, as opposed to the urea cycle carbamoyl phosphate derived from ammonia and bicarbonate in the mitochondrion.
Carbamoyl phosphate utilized in pyrimidine nucleotide synthesis differs from that synthesized in the urea cycle; it is synthesized from glutamine instead of ammonia and is synthesized in the cytosol.

Nucleotides such as GTP and ATP play an important regulatory and triggering role for many enzymes and proteins.
To demonstrate the feasibility of using photoreactive nucleotides or nucleosides we used the biotin-avidin system which is widely used to measure antigen-antibody binding.
Furthermore, we assumed that the affinity and relative specificity of the nucleotide photoprobes could afford direct photo-affinity biotinylation of antibodies in serum or in culture supernatant from hybridoma cell lines.

GenBank is a database of nucleotide sequences from >100,000 organisms.
For each sequence, the match scores are converted into various types of p-values and these are used to determine the overall match of the sequence to the group of motifs and the probable order and spacing of occurrences of the motifs in the sequence.
The primary aim of the EMBL-Align databases is to archive the large nucleotide sequence alignments generated from phylogenetic and population analysis.

 SWGDAM mtDNA Nucleotide Sequence Interpretation, April 2003
The interpretation of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) nucleotide sequencing results in casework is a matter of professional judgement and expertise.
Nucleotide sequence data obtained from population database samples must include a minimum of HV1 (positions 16024-16365) and HV2 (positions 73-340).
The laboratory must establish criteria to assign nucleotide base calls to appropriate peaks or bands and to determine whether the results are of sufficient quality for interpretation purposes.

 Nucleotide Structure
The sugar that is part of a nucleotide is a 5-carbon atom sugar in its ring form.
It is the ring form of the ribose and deoxyribose that are used in the nucleotide units.
This nucleotide is often called adenosine monophosphate because it is made from adenosine with one phosphate group attached.

 CDC - Genomewide Pattern of Synonymous Nucleotide Substitution in Two Complete Genomes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
This level of nucleotide difference leads to the conservative estimate that the common ancestor of these two genotypes occurred approximately 35,000 ago, which is twice as high as some recent estimates of the time of origin of this species.
Rates of nucleotide substitution per unit time are difficult to estimate in bacteria given the lack of calibration from the fossil record (10).
These calculations emphasize the need to examine a very large number of nucleotide sites to obtain a reliable estimate of nucleotide diversity and thus of the age of the most recent common ancestor in cases where the frequency of substitution is less than one in a thousand.

 Nucleotide Polymorphisms and Tuberculosis | CDC EID
Nucleotide substitutions proven to cause drug resistance are distributed throughout the tree, whereas nonsynonymous base substitutions unrelated to drug resistance have a restricted distribution.
The mutational processes that generate this variation are understood, and sequence data have been successfully used in the study of bacterial epidemiology, population biology, and evolution (16).
The loci chosen were genes associated with antimicrobial drug resistance that have been reported to possess >95% of all sequence variation observed in 26 structural genes studied (19), which includes >90% of synonymous nucleotide substitutions, i.e., nucleotide substitutions that do not affect the translated amino acid.

 Nucleic Acid vs Nucleotide
Besides AMP, other nucleotides present in RNA are GMP (guanylic acid, or guanosine 5'-phosphoric acid), CMP (cytidylic acid, or cytidine 5 '-phosphoric acid) and UMP (uridylic acid, or uridine 5'-phosphoric acid).
If you want to play games with semantics you could insist that nucleotides are acidic molecules found in the nucleus (in addition to the cytoplasm) so they must be "nucleic acids." You could also claim, by the same logic, that amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) are cytoplasmic acids.
Nucleic acid structure was elucidated in the early 50's and are considered "linear polymers of nucleotides whose phosphates bridge the 3 prime and 5 prime positions of successive sugar residues".

 Nucleotide Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The use of any ligand as a signalling molecule necessitates a mechanism for its inactivation and so, purine nucleotides are hydrolysed to adenosine, a nucleoside that acts through metabotropic adenosine (P1) receptor subtypes, to exert physiological effects in almost all organ systems.
It is for this reason that nucleotide and nucleoside receptors have now become therapeutic targets for the treatment of conditions as diverse as pain, urinary incontinence, stroke and depression, and the field of purinoceptor research has expanded significantly in the last ten years.
The identification and characterisation of adenosine receptors (ARs) preceded that of the nucleotide receptors.
