11 nucleic acid nucleotide phosphoric acidnucleosidepentosebase

12 means pentose, DNA has deoxyribose, RNA has ribose ; means nitrogenous bases means phosphate nucleotide

13 ribose ( in RNA ) 2’- deoxyribose ( in DNA )

14 purine ring N N N N N N Pyrimidine ring DNA RNA

15 The chemical modification of bases is widespread, and has a number of specific roles. Such as: the methylation of the N-6 position of A 、 the 4-amino group and the 5- position of C

16 2.3.1 nucleoside : DNA: 2’-deoxyribose + A 、 T 、 C 、 G RNA: ribose + A 、 U 、 C 、 G The base is linked to position 1 on a pentose by a glycosidic bond from N 1 of pyrimidine or N 9 of purine

17 H2OH2O H2OH2O base phosphoric acid pentose glycosidic bond Phosphate bond nucleotide

18 2.1 primary structure of nucleic acid definition : the nucletide residue sequence of the polynucleotide chain ; linkage : 3’,5’-phosphodiester bond ; backbone : phosphate + pentose ; direction : from the 5’ terminus to the 3’ terminus ; representation


20 Three discoveries (physical chemistry studies and acid and alkali titrate studies on DNA base 、 chargaff rules 、 x-ray photograph of DNA)converged in the construction of the double helix model for DNA by Watson and Crick in 1953 means DNA double helix

21 the base composition of DNA varies from one species to another, while DNA specimens isolated from different tissues of the same species have the same base composition ; in nature DNA,the number of G units equals the number of C units and the number of A units equals the number of T units ( this strongly hinted towards the base pair makeup of DNA ) ; The base composition of DNA in a given species does not change with an organism’s age,nutritional state,or changing environment 。 Chargaff rules :

22 X~ray photograph of DNA with high quality : DNA specimens from different species have the same results ( constant width;3.4nm ); Chargaff rules : the rule of the composition of DNA physical chemistry studies and acid and alkali titrate studies on DNA base ;

23 Two polynucleotide chains in a DNA double helix antiparallel ( one strand runs in the 5’→3’ direction,whlie its partner runs 3’→5’ ) Along the same axis , two chains are wound around each other, resulting in a right-handed double helix forms a major groove and a minor groove key notes of DNA double helix

24 The bases lie on the inside , the sugar- phosphate backbone is on the outside The bases are flat structure, lying in pairs perpendicular to the axis

25 The diameter of the double helix is 2nm There is a complete turn every 3.4nm, with 10bp per turn.

26 Two chains in the double helix associate by hydrogen bonding between the bases,G with C and A with T(base pairing, complementary). Three hydrogen bond can form specifically between G and C,but only two can form between A and T;

27 1. Two chains,antiparallel, right-handed, major groove and minor groove 2. outside(sugar- phosphate backbone), inside(bases), 3’,5’- phosphodiester bond 3. 2nm in diameter, 10bp per turn, 3.4nm 4. Base pairing 小沟 大沟 5’ 3’ 5’ 3’ 小沟

28 Explains for the first time how genetic information is encoded in DNA and passed from one generation to the next ; tremendous strides in our understanding of the structure of DNA and, as a result our ability to work with and manipulate the information-rich DNA molecule base pairing → DNA semi-conservative replication mechanism

29 In physiological conditions,the DNA double helix is very stable. stable factors : H bonding between complementary base pairs ; Base-stacking interaction ( hydrophobic effect, the major factor ); electrovalent bond ( between the negative charges carried on the phosphate groups and the positive charges carried on the proteins or metal ions )

30 Base Obliquity helix rise per base pair bp number per turn Helical sense diameter ( nm ) B-form Z-form 0-1   9  0.34 nm 0.23 nm 0.38 nm R handed L handed A-form B-form : relative humidity is 92% A-form : relative devoid of water (under 75%) Z-form : left handed helix H-form : triple helix

49 The conjugated aromatic of bases→nucleic acid absorb UV λmax=260nm The UV absorption properties of nucleic acids can be used for detection,quantitation and assessment of purity

50 RNA : OD 260 / OD 280 =2.0 DNA : OD 260 / OD 280 =1.8 The value greater than 1.8,suggests RNA contamination less protein OD 260 = 1.0 = 50 μ g/mL dsDNA = 40 μ g/mL ssDNA/RNA = 20 μ g/mL (d)NTP

51 3.4.1 denaturation definition: a number of physical and chemical factors can lead to the destruction of double-stranded hydrogen- bonded regions of DNA and RNA,the double-stranded nucleic acids are converted to single strands.

52 characters of denatural DNA : biological activity changed(even lost) ; The UV absorption value increased (hyperchromicity), viscosity decreased , solubility decreased,buoyant density increased ; The structure became loose,easy to be hydrolyzed ; Molecular weight remained unchanged

53 Increased temperature can bring about DNA denaturation; 将 DNA 的变性达到 50% 时的温度称为 DNA 的解链温度( melting temperature, T m ), 也称熔解温度或 DNA 的熔点。 T m 是 DNA 的特征常数。

54 G+C content : G 和 C 的含量高, T m 值高。通 过测定 T m 值,可反映 DNA 分子中 GC 含量: ( G+C ) %= ( T m ) ×2.44 DNA 的均一性:均一性较好,则 T m 值范围较 小; 介质的离子强度: DNA 应保存在含盐的缓冲 液中

55 definition :热变性 DNA 在温度逐渐降低 时,在一定浓度的盐溶液中,两条分开的单 链可以重新恢复双螺旋结构,又称为退火 ( annealing ) 。 characters of renaturation biological activity resumed hypochromicity viscosity increased, solubility increased, buoyant density decreased

56 factors that influence renaturation temperature :缓慢比快速好 DNA concentration :越高越快 Size of DNA segments :片段越大,越不容易 DNA complexity :重复片段 (repetitive segment) 越多复性速度越快,单重复片段复性速度最慢


58 定义: the renaturation of regions of complementarity between different nucleic acid strands(DNA or RNA) 特点:灵敏度高、专一 性强
