1 Nucleic Acids Polymer Individual unit called a (mono)nucleotide DNA is a type of nucleic acid – deoxyribonucleic acid

2 Nucleotide Structure 3 components: – Pentose sugar (ribose in DNA) – Phosphoric acid – Organic base (always contains nitrogen) Phosphate sugar base Stay the same Changes Contains nitrogen & carbon Pentose sugar (5 Carbon atoms)

3 4 Bases Purines – –Double ringed structure Pyrimidines – –Single ringed structure

4 Bondings The base and sugar join with a: glycosidic bond The phosphate and sugar join with an: ester bond Both require a condensation reaction to occur

5 H H OH Phosphate Sugar Base 2 condensation reactions occur in the formation of a nucleotide: Ester bond Glycosidic bond

6

7 Tell me… 4 names of bases in DNA 3 components of a nucleotide 1 place where a condensation reaction occurs 2 types of bonds in a nucleotide 1 difference between purine and pyrimidine bases

8 Phosphodiester Bonds: the sugar-phosphate-backbone

9 Complementary Base Pairing *Purines always pair with pyrimidines* A joins to T (2 hydrogen bonds) C joins to G (3 hydrogen bonds) see

10 C A G T 2 hydrogen bonds 3 hydrogen bonds nm 2nm

11 Type of BasePurinePyrimidine Structure Bonding relationships Adenine Guanine Thymine Cytosine = hydrogen bond

12 TypePurinePyrimidine Structure NameAdenine Guanine Thymine Cytosine / Uracil

13 For the DNA strand 5'-TACGATCATAT-3' the correct complementary DNA strand is: A3'-TACGATCATAT-5' B3'-ATGCTAGTATA-5' C3'-AUGCUAGUAUA-5' D3'-GCATATACGCG-5' E3'-TATACTAGCAT-5'
