DNA, RNA & Protein Synthesis. A DNA nucleotide has three parts: a sugar molecule called DEOXYRIBOSE, a phosphate group (which consists of P and O atoms), and a NITROGEN BASE.
Nitrogen bases: COMPLEMENTARY BASE PAIRS. Cytosine for the structure of DNA that looked like a spiral staircase: DOUBLE HELIX.always pairs with guanine; adenine always pairs with thymine.
DNA REPLICATION- Copying DNA in
*Two nucleotide chains separate
by unwinding; each chain serves as a
template for a new nucleotide chain.
Suppose that the sequence of nucleotides in one chain of the original DNA molecule is A-T-T-C-C-G. DNA polymerases would produce a new nucleotide chain with the sequence of ________________.
Mutations video every 10,000 paired nucleotides. A change in the nucleotide sequence at even one location, (MUTATION), may have serious effects on new cells.
2. URACIL replaces thymine. So, uracil (not thymine) pairs with adenine in RNA.
