- Dear lazyweb, is the popular nucleotide pronounced gua-nine or gu-an-ine?
"gua-nine". Interesting DNA/film fact: the movie title GATTACA is itself a mini DNA sequence (from guanine, adenine, thymine, cytosine)
gua-nine, I think, with accent on the first syllable ^EB
I concur: two syllables. Think guano is its etymology, so Spanish rules apply.
In my world it has always been "gwa-nine"
I say 'gua-neen' (Ph.D. biologist once-upon-a-time, FWIW; also, American)
always heard it as gua-nine in my classes (admittedly crazy Canadians)
