Chapter 1


What is biochemistry

What is Biochemistry?

Biochemistry is the application of chemistry to the study of biological processes at the cellular and molecular level.

Bich411 biochemistry i

Eukarya: all macroscopic organisms, including human beings as well as many microscopic, unicellular organism such as yeast.

The characteristic: a well-defined nucleus within each cell.


Bich411 biochemistry i

Unicellular organisms lacking a nucleus are prokaryotes, including

(1)Bacteria and (2) Archaea.

Conclusion

Conclusion:

  • (1) Organisms are remarkably uniform at the molecular level.

  • This uniformity reveals that all organisms on earth have arisen from a common ancestor.


Bich411 biochemistry i

  • (2) All are subject to the same laws of physics and chemistry.

  • Biochemistry is an intellectually coherent and beautiful discipline because of the underlying unity of life.


Bich411 biochemistry i

1. DNA

(1) Four simple compounds constructed DNA


Bich411 biochemistry i

(2) DNA is a linear polymer of 4 kinds of units, each consisting of the same sugar-phosphate unit, but with 4 different bases attached: A, C, G, T.


Bich411 biochemistry i

(3) Two strands combine by noncovalent base-pairing of A with T; G with C.


Bich411 biochemistry i

  • (4) Facts

  • a. Most DNA molecules consisted of two strands.

  • b. This strands arranged in a double helix structure.

  • c. The double helix structure composed of two intertwined strands.

  • d. In the structure, the sugar-phosphate backbone lies on the outside and the bases on the inside.

  • e. Hydrogen bonds formed between the specific base pair is the major reason of two strands holding together.

  • f. The hydrogen bonds are weak enough to be reversibly broken in biochemical process and strong enough to help stabilize the double helix structure.


Bich411 biochemistry i

(5) Two properties

A and T forms two hydrogen bonds.


Bich411 biochemistry i

G and C forms three hydrogen bonds.


Bich411 biochemistry i

  • Adenine only binds with Thymine (A-T)

  • Guanine only binds with Cytosine (G-C)

  • Therefore, One strand determines the other strand. ( Each strand can be used as a template).


Bich411 biochemistry i

Same shape and same size, thus fitting neatly within the double helix.

For above reason DNA is used as a hereditary material.


Bich411 biochemistry i

2. RNA: RNA is an intermediate in the flow of genetic information

RNA( ribonucleic Acid)

Similar to DNA

Linear polymer

Sugar ribose, rather than deoxyribose

Uracil instead of thymine


Bich411 biochemistry i

RNA is templates for protein synthesis


Bich411 biochemistry i

3. Proteins:

Protein is the primary functional molecules in the cells.


Bich411 biochemistry i

3. Proteins:

Facts:

Proteins: structural components of cell, or enzymes

Proteins are linear polymers, just like DNA and RNA

Proteins are more complicated.


Bich411 biochemistry i

3. Proteins:

Protein is the primary functional molecules in the cells.


Bich411 biochemistry i

  • 3. Proteins:

  • Extremely Important property:

  • A protein spontaneously folds into a well defined and elaborate three-dimensional structure.

  • This 3-D structure is dictated entirely by the sequence of amino acids along its chain.


Bich411 biochemistry i

3. Proteins:

The self-folding nature of proteins constitutes the transition from the one-dimensional world of sequence information to the three-dimensional world of biological function.

Three bases along a DNA chain encode a single amino acid. (genetic code).

Questions:

1. DNA is made from _____ building blocks (Bases) . These blocks are___________________________.


Bich411 biochemistry i

Questions:

1. DNA is made from __4___ building blocks (Bases) . These blocks are adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine.


Bich411 biochemistry i

2. The DNA backbone is made from repeating___________


Bich411 biochemistry i

2. The DNA backbone is made from repeating sugar-phosphate units.


Bich411 biochemistry i

  • 3. The number of hydrogen bonds formed between A and C is

  • 1 b.2 c. 0 d.3

  • 4. The number of hydrogen bonds formed between A and T is

  • 1 b.2 c. 0 d.3

  • 5. The number of hydrogen bonds formed between C and G is

  • 1 b.2 c. 0 d.3

6. The fundamental groups of organisms include-------------.


Bich411 biochemistry i

6. The fundamental groups of organisms include Eukarya, Bacteria, and Archaea.


Bich411 biochemistry i

7. DNA is used as a hereditary material, because:


Bich411 biochemistry i

  • 7. DNA is used as a hereditary material, because:

  • The base pairs have essentially the same shape and same size, thus fit equally well into the center of the double-helical structure.

  • The sequence of bases along one strand completely determines the sequence along the other strand.
