adenine (A, Ade)

One of the two major purines (the other being guanine) found in both RNA and DNA, and also in various free nucleotides of importance to the body, such as AMP (adenylic acid), ATP, NAD+ and NADP+, and FAD; in all these smaller compounds, adenine is condensed with ribose at the nitrogen-9, forming adenosine. For structure, see adenylic acid. Syn: 6-aminopurine.
