Glossary of "Plant Biology (1st ed.)" by Graham et al. (2003)

  • The relationship between the two strands of nucleotides in DNA whereby the base A is linked to the base T, and the base G is linked to the base C, via hydrogen bonding. Complementary DNA (cDNA) is a single-stranded molecule of DNA that has been synthesized by using messenger RNA (mRNA) as a template and the enzyme reverse transcriptase.

Glossary of "The Cell (5th ed.)" by Alberts et al. (2008)

  • (1) Of nucleic acid sequences: capable of forming a perfect base-paired duplex with each other. (2) Of other interacting molecules, such as an enzyme and its substrate: having biochemical or structural features that marry up, so that noncovalent bonding is facilitated.
