DNA


Nucleic acids

Nucleic Acids

  • Function/job: Store important Information in the cell

  • Made of: nucleotides

  • Examples: DNA and RNA


Nucleic acid structure

Nucleic Acid Structure

  • A nucleotide is made of 3 components:

    • Phosphate

    • sugar

    • nitrogen base


Dna

DNA

  • Contains information needed for cell activity and cell division

  • Contains all genetic information

  • DNA – Deoxyribonucleic Acid


Dna

DNA

  • Structure, It contains

    • Sugar Phosphate Backbone (deoxyribose)

    • Nitrogen containing bases (four possible)

    • Double Stranded


Dna

DNA

  • Double Helix, with base pairing in the center.


Dna

DNA

  • Four Possible Nitrogen Ring bases

    • ADENINE – A

    • GUANINE– G

    • CYTOSINE – C

    • THYMINE – T

      Know that:

      A goes with T

      G goes with C


Dna base pairing

The bases are in the inside of the ladder structure they are like the rungs of the ladder.

The order of base pairs gives organisms their unique traits

DNA Base Pairing


Dna

A bonds with T

C bonds with G

It is estimated that there are over 3 billion base pairs in humans
