Basic Molecular Biology Core of biotechnology
Began in 1940s Scientists studying animal and plant viruses
1953 James Watson and Francis Crick identified the structure of DNA
1960s The genetic code was worked out
1970s Restriction enzymes were discovered.
Broad range of studies DNA-RNA genetic engineering cloning gene therapy recombinant DNA gene splicing
Nucleotides composed of three parts –a phosphate molecule –a sugar molecule –a nitrogen base molecule
Sugar molecules ribose as in RNA deoxyribose as in DNA
Nitrogen bases five bases in RNA and DNA
DNA Cytosine - C Thymine - T Adenine - A Guanine - G
RNA A, C, G & Uracil - U found only in RNA Substitutes for Thymine
Structure of DNA genetic material of the cell - makes up the genes genes are organized in chromosomes
Chromosomes make up the genetic info of the cell or genome
The nucleotides….. ACT&G form two long strands The strands are complimentary Bases on one strand are paired with those on the other strand
Base Pairing A with T C with G ALWAYS this way!
Double Helix forms when the two strands intertwine like a ribbon around a pole
Antiparallel The two strands run antiparallel They face each other and run in opposite directions
Strands run in different directions one strand runs from 5 to 3 the other strand runs 3to 5
Prime ends 3 & 5 are differentiated by the arrangement of the sugar on each nucleotide 5 ends in a Phosphate (P) 3 ends in a Hydroxide (OH)
DNA Structure unique for three reasons complimentarity of the two strands - base pairing variability of base sequence along the two linear strands
DNA Structure independence of the two strands –their ability to separate and rejoin without destroying the molecule.
DNA in Humans 6 billion base pairs in a human cell 100 trillion cells in human body. DNA in a human would reach to the moon and back 250,000 times
Turns of the helix There are ten base pairs per complete turn of the helix Distance of one complete turn of the helix is 34 A ( Angstrums)
Functions of DNA carry genetic information express genetic information
Express genetic info directs the synthesis of proteins proteins determine the traits of an organism
Eukaryotic Cells having a true membrane bound nucleus DNA of nucleus is stored by wrapping it around five proteins to form a nucleosome.
Nucleosome forms the chromosome the genes are located along the DNA molecule chromosomes occur in pairs
Prokaryotic Cells chromosome is not associated with proteins exists as a single, circular chromosome of double stranded DNA. Also contain smaller circular DNA called a plasmid
Plasmids can pass between bacteria are vehicles for introducing new genes into bacteria in nature and in the lab
Transcription Replication goes from the 5 to the 3 end of DNA
Reading DNA DNA is read from 3 to 5
Synthesis of DNA synthesized only in the 5 to 3 direction Cannot initiate synthesis of a new strand - requires a 3OH as a primer
Types of RNA messenger - mRNA carries the code for a protein
Codon sequence of three bases each three bases represents an amino acid
Transfer RNA tRNA carries appropriate Amino Acid with it anticodon - pairs with the codon
Ribosomal RNA rRNA required for bonding to occur by Amino Acids Ribosome has two parts –big –small
Chapter 10 Table of Contents Section 1 Discovery of DNA
Chapter 13 DNA, RNA and Proteins.
Chapter 12:DNA and RNA (Molecular Genetics).
MOLECULAR GENETICS. DNA- deoxyribonucleic acid James Watson and Francis Crick discover the structure of the DNA molecule DNA is a double helix (twisted.
The Second of the Big Four Nucleic Acids. These are macromolecules are made up of nucleotides – Polymer - nucleic acid – Monomer - nucleotide Contain.
NUCLEIC ACIDS Journey to the tiny world of DNA. Nucleic Acids Organic molecules, include C, H, O, N and P elements. Have various roles in metabolic.
12-3: RNA AND PROTEIN SYNTHESIS Biology 2. DNA double helix structure explains how DNA can be copied, but not how genes work GENES: sequence of DNA that.
Bell Work GCCTTA What would be the DNA compliment of the section of DNA above? a. CGGAAT b. CGGUUT c. ATTCCG d. TAAGGC.
RNA: Structure and Function. RNA FUNCTION Function: RNA reads blueprints (DNA) & makes protein.
DNA Study Guide 35 multiple choice 1 DNA problem (replication, transcription, & translation)
DNA & Genetics Biology. Remember chromosomes? What are genes? Made up of DNA and are units of heredity; unique to everyone What are traits? Are physical.
DNA Structure and Function
What must DNA do? 1.Replicate to be passed on to the next generation 2.Store information 3.Undergo mutations to provide genetic diversity.
Mrs. Degl Molecular Genetics DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a.

DNA Chapter 12. DNA DeoxyriboNucleic Acid Sugar = deoxyribose Adenine + Thymine Guanine + Cytosine Double-stranded helix with alternating sugars and phosphate.
