2 DNA Functions Stores genetic information to build and maintain a living organism Copies itself
3 James Watson & Francis Creek 1953 Determined the three- dimensional structure of DNA One of the greatest discoveries in the history of science Nobel prize in 1962
4 DNA Made of repeating units called nucleotides Each nucleotide made of a sugar named deoxyribose, a phosphate and a base
5 DNA Nucleotide Deoxyribose Phosphate Base =
6 Nucleotides Form a Double Strand Deoxyribose Phosphate Base
7 DNA Molecule is Double Stranded
8 Base Pairing Rule Adenine pairs with Thymine Guanine pairs with Cytosine
9 DNA Total length of DNA in each cell is about 6 feet Wraps around proteins called histones Over 3 billion nucleotide pairs in human DNA!
10 DNA Replication DNA strands separate DNA nucleotides attach to each strand
11 Each new DNA molecule will be an exact copy of the original
12 First, DNA strands separate
13 Second, an RNA attaches to DNA strand DNA cannot start replication on its own
14 Third, DNA nucleotides are attached to DNA strand
15 Fourth and final, the RNA is removed
16 DNA Errors Replication is not 100% accurate –Errors occur when copying DNA DNA damaged –Ultraviolet light –X-rays –Cigarette smoke –Nitrates (smoked meat) –Pesticides & Herbicides
17 The End
Genetic control of protein structure and function
DNA Deoxyribonucleic Acid Structure and Replication
The Structure of DNA All life on earth uses a chemical called DNA to carry its genetic code or blueprint. In this lesson we be examining the structure.
Nucleic Acids The Genetic Material. Two types of Nucleic acids RNA RNA DNA DNA.
Nucleic Acids & Protein Synthesis Chapter Structure of DNA Phosphate group Nitrogen-containing base Sugar (deoxyribose)
Warm-Up Where is DNA found? What is DNA?
DNA: The Molecule of Heredity. DNA Structure Deoxyribonucleic acid. A macromolecule composed of two strands of monomers called nucleotides. These strands.
H-> Chapter 10 Page 180 A-> Chapter 12 Page 286 If you unwrap all the DNA you have in all your cells, you could reach the moon! 6000 times!!!
DNA: The Molecule of Heredity
The structure of DNA.
DNA: Structure and Function. DNA Structure Deoxyribonucleic acid. A macromolecule composed of two strands of monomers called nucleotides. These strands.
DNA Deoxyribonucleic Acid. The DNA Connection What have you learned about inheritance, DNA, and cell division up to this point? How do genes determine.
Essential Question: What is the overall structure of DNA.
DNA “Deoxyribonucleic acid”
DNA Structure Review. Questions 1.Name the term used to describe the shape of the DNA molecule. 2.What does DNA stand for? 3.What 3 chemicals make up.
AS Biology. Gnetic control of protein structure and function Genetic control of protein structure and function.
DNA The molecule of heredity. The molecules of DNA is the information for life (determine an organism’s traits) DNA achieves its control by determining.
