Layman's explanation: Adenosine is an endogenous nucleoside occurring in all of the cells of the body. It is chemically 6-amino-9-B-D-ribofuanosyl-9-H-purine and has the chemical formula of C10H13N5O4. Adenosine naturally hydrogen bonds to thymidine by two hydrogen bonds to construct a stable structure. Adenosine is a purine, meaning that it is a single ring structure. A carbon sugar ring attaches to nitrogen in the base to form an N-glycosylic bond. The nitrogenous bases, which are primarily nonpolar, pack tightly enough to exclude water and form a stable, primarily nonpolar environment in the helix interior.
