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

DNA DNA is often called the blueprint of life. In simple terms, DNA contains the instructions for making proteins within the cell.
Points to Ponder What are three functions of DNA? Review DNA and RNA structure. What are the 3 types of RNA and what are their functions? Compare and contrast.
DNA and RNA Chapter 16. Structure of DNA DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is a very long coiled molecule. The structure of DNA can be considered under 3 headings:

CH. 8 IDENTIFYING DNA AS THE GENETIC MATERIAL. CH. 5 & 6 REVIEW ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: 1. What macromolecule group does DNA & RNA belong in?
DNA, RNA and Protein Synthesis Review. 1. What does DNA stand for? Deoxyribonucleic Acid.
RNA and Protein Synthesis. Protein Synthesis Protein Synthesis is the process that cells use to produce protein. - it involves 2 distinct phases Transcription.
11.1 Genes are made of DNA. Griffith Experiment Avery Experiment -Destroyed proteins -Mice still died with mix.
AS Biology. Gnetic control of protein structure and function Genetic control of protein structure and function.
Genetics. Heredity Passing of traits from parent to offspring.
Chapter 4: Patterns of Heredity 4.1 Living things inherit traits in patterns 4.2 Patterns of heredity can be predicted 4.3 DNA is divided during meiosis.
1 Higher Biology DNA Deoxyribonucleic Acid Structure and Replication.
