Homework 4 BCH 361 Fall 2008 Name of the student: (1) Draw the structures of a Adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) and Deoxycytidine-5'- monophosphate (dCMP) (2) Name the three different forms of DNA (secondary structure). Which of the form is most common in nature? (3) Draw the structure of thymine and uracil and give a suggestion why uracil has been replaced by thymine in the DNA. (4) What is the difference between type I and type II topoisomerases. (5) Name the five different types of RNAs and indicate their function in the cell 1

(6) In which direction grows the emerging m-RNA chain and in which direction does the RNA- polymerase move along the DNA template strand? (7) Draw the secondary structure of the t-RNA and indicate the anticodon loop. To which end (3' or 5') is the amino acid attached? (8) What is a gene? (9) How many bases code for one amino acid.
