Module 5-1 Nucleotides, DNA Structure and Replication 2/24/2016 Nucleotides  DNA and RNA are polynucleotide chains  Nucleotides contain a base (B), sugar (S), and a phosphate group (P)  The nitrogen-containing bases come from two cyclic chemical compounds o Pyrimidine  Cytosine (Found in RNA and DNA)  Thymine (Found in DNA only)  Uracil (Found in RNA only) o Purine  Adenine  Guanine  There are two kinds of pentoses (sugars) o Ribose (Found in RNA) contains 1 more oxygen than deoxyribose  Ribonuecleotides: A, G, U, C o Deoxyribose (Found in DNA)  Deoxyribonucleotides: A, G, T, C  Nucleotides are joined together by a phosphodiester linkage o This is between the 5’ –OH of one pentose and the 3’ –OH of the next and it gives each strand a specific orientation 5’ 3’  RNA is a SINGLE CHAIN  DNA is a DOUBLE CHAIN (DOUBLE HELIX)  Complementary base pairs: o A-T Be able to complete a o G-C sequence of nucleotides o This enables the base pairs to given a template. be packed in the interior of the sugar-phosphate backbones  The structure of DNA was “discovered” by James Watson and Francis Crick by X-ray diffraction analysis.  DNA is wrapped around a protein core (Histone) and packed into chromosomes Replication  DNA polymerase will synthesize a new strand and always add nucleotides in the 5’3’ direction.  Replication Origin: the particular sequence where synthesis starts  REPLICATION IS BIDIRECTIONAL
