Unformatted text preview: Biochemical studies revealed that some of these sites bind the Bicoid protein with high affinity, whereas other sites bind Bicoid with low affinity. What is different about these binding sites that accounts for their differing affinity to this protein? Each binding site is a stretch of double-stranded DNA 8-10 nucleotides in length. Different binding sites vary in their affinity for Bicoid protein because they vary in their nucleotide sequence. 3. [1.5 pt] What must be true about the structure of two nucleic acid strands in order for them to hybridize with one another? A complementary sequence of nucleotides.
