A nucleotide is made out of an azotat baze(adenine, guanine, timine or citosine), a phosphate group and a sugar(dezoxiribose in ADN)

Yup, it's made of Deoxyribose sugar (sugar molecule but missing one O atom), phosphate molecule and organic bases (hmm...I should try to name it aotat bases..is it their true name in english language?)
