DNA Structure - the three-dimensional shape of DNA is a double helix (Watson and Crick, 1953) What information contributed to the discovery of the double helix structure? DNA composition X-ray diffraction data
Background image of page 2
3 What does DNA do? 1. Copy Function - Faithfully copied during cell division DNA Replication 2. Expression Function - Encodes cellular products that determine phenotype RNA Protein Transcription Translation Structure of DNA

Figure 4.9 DNA FORMS A TEMPLATE FOR ITS OWN SYNTHESIS. 1. If the hydrogen bonds between complementary base pairs are broken, the DNA helix can separate. 2. Each strand of DNA can serve as a template for the formation of a new strand. Free nucleotides attach according to complementary base pairing. 3. When the new strands polymerize to form a sugar- phosphate backbone, secondary structure is restored. New New Old Old Conclusion: The original molecule has been copied. Each copy has one strand from the original DNA molecule and one new strand.
