Unformatted text preview: 3 AUCG 13 Watson and Crick (1953) Rosalind Franklin s X-Ray diffraction data Chargaff s rules Jerry Donoghue knowledge of the correct tautomeric forms of the bases Reliable mechanism for replication 14 Rosalind Franklin s data: DNA is a helix 15 Chargaff s rule A = T G = C Rule applies to DNA not RNA 16 Tautomeric forms of the bases 17 Predominant tautomeric forms 18 Base-pairing - H-bonding between the bases Interfaces are complementary 19 Watson and Crick 20 Two anti-parallel strands held together by H-bonds between the bases 21 DNA forms a right-handed helix 22 Characteristics of DNA 1. Double helix 2. Stands run anti-parallel 3. Bases are planar and are in the center of the helix 4. Major and a minor groove 5. Bases on one strand base-pair with complimentary bases on the other strand 6. Sugar is deoxyribose 23 DNA can be replicated reliably...
