Each amino acid is dictated by a particular triplet of bases called a codon. Some amino acids have more than one codon. The bases are condensed to form the DNA chain in a process analogous to the condensation of amino acids that make up the primary structure of a protein. In mammals the adenine-thymine content varies from 45% to 53%. The guanine-cytosine content varies from 50% to 55%. Small amounts of the base, 5-methyicytosine, as well as methylated derivatives of the other bases can also be found.

A molecule that has many hydrogen bonds is very stable. tRNA also contains a triplet of bases known, in this instance, as the anticodon. The amino acid carried by tRNA is identified by the codon of mRNA through its anticodon; the amino acid itself is not involved in this identification. A few general statements can be made about the distribution of ribosomes in cells that have different capacities for the synthesis of proteins. (1) Cells that synthesize large numbers of proteins have numerous ribosomes; conversely, cells that synthesize small numbers of proteins contain few.
