Chem 476 HW 2 Due September 7, 2007 “Structure of DNA” Name:________________________ Please complete all questions. Do your work on additional sheets of paper and staple to the back of this sheet. Do not put your answers on this page. You may work with your classmates on this and all homework assignments. I will grade the same three questions for all students and post the answers to the questions after they are due. I.) Problems from the textbook and supplement (do not hand in).

Additional Problems to hand in : Protein Database (PDB) : Using the protein database to analyze a structure. Go to the protein database at http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/home/home.do (or just Google pdb). The PDB is a repository for all protein, DNA and RNA structures. There is also the nucleic acids database (NDB) http://ndbserver.rutgers.edu/ which has DNA and RNA structures too; it is overlapping with the PDB in content, but has unique and useful nucleic acid-specific search features. Enter 1d2s for the PDB ID (top of page). 1.) What is the function of this protein? (You can go to http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/static.do?p=education_discussion/molecule_of_the_month/index.html and then choose 2007, anabolic steroids to read more.)
