What is dna

What is DNA?

DNA holds all the genetic information that determines an organism’s traits.

Height

Hair Color

Skin Tone

Eye Color


What is dna1

What is DNA?

Within the structure of DNA is the information for life—the complete instructions for manufacturing all the proteins for an organism.

  • DNA achieves its control by determining the structure of proteins.

    • Enzymes (a type of protein) control the chemical reactions needed for life.

      • Eating, running, even thinking

Rosalind franklin

Rosalind Franklin

1952

Studied DNA structure with X-ray diffraction

Important clues to the structure of DNA

  • Twisted strands (helix)

  • Angle suggested 2 strands ( double-helix)

  • Nitrogen bases near the center of the molecule


James watson and francis crick

James Watson and Francis Crick

Built a DNA model based on the clues from Franklins X-ray diffraction

1953

Dna is a double helix

DNA is a Double Helix

A double helix looks like a twisted ladder.


The double helix building blocks

The Double Helix Building Blocks

A DNA strand is a polymer.

They are very long!

It’s length is what allows DNA

to hold so much information

The repeating subunits

of DNA are called

nucleotides


Nucleotide structure

Nucleotide Structure

Composed of 3 parts

  • There are 4

  • possible bases.

  • Broken down into

  • 2 categories

Phosphate

Nitrogen

Base

Deoxyribose

Sugar


Nucleotide structure1

Nucleotide Structure

  • The phosphate groups and deoxyribose (sugar) molecules bond to form the backbone of the chain

  • The nitrogenous bases stick out like the teeth of a zipper.

Types of nitrogen bases

Types of Nitrogen bases

There are two types of nitrogen bases

Purines

Pyrimidines

Purines have two rings

Pyrimadines have one ring

How the double helix is formed

How the double helix is formed

Nitrogen bases bond to one another to connect the two strands

But only certain bases can bond to one another


Chargaff s rule base pairing

Chargaff’s Rule – Base Pairing

1 Purine must bond to 1 pyrimadine

Adenine

only bonds to Thymine

Guanine

only bonds to Cytosine
