A base pair is the space between two nucleotides and is made up of a combination of adenine (A) and thymine (T) or cytosine (C) and guanine (G). These pairs hold the DNA together and make up the double helix shape.

A base pair is two bases bonded together, and these pairs are the building blocks of DNA. The bases that make up the base pairs are adenine, thymine, cytosine and guanine. These four bases are the letters of the genetic alphabet. The bases pair up with each other to form the double helix shape.

A base pair is a pair of molecules that are bonded to one another. The base pairs are held together by hydrogen bonds. The base pairs form the double helix shape of the DNA.

A base pair is a set of two nucleotides that form the rungs of the twisted ladder that is the DNA double helix. The nitrogenous bases that form the base pairs are adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and guanine (G).

A base pair is a single, specific combination of a purine (adenine or guanine) and a pyrimidine (thymine or cytosine). These are the two molecules responsible for the DNA double helix shape. The bases form hydrogen bonds with one another, which is what gives DNA its double helix shape.
