Nucleic Acid Structure and General Features

ID #1630

The following are nucleotides commonly used by a cell: False: TTP True: CTP True: dGTP False: dUTP True: dATP I don't understand these answers.. how can d or P be a nucleotide? I thought only A, T, C, G, or U were nucleotides used by cells?

In the designation for a nucleotide like dGTP, for example, the "d" stands for deoxyribo, the "G" stands for guanosine (the nucleoside designation for guanine), and the "TP" stand for triphosphate.
