Unformatted text preview: Chapter 14 DNA: The Genetic Material earning Objectives: . Review of DNA Structure . Evidence for DNA as the genetic material . Models of DNA Replication . DNA replication in E. coli . Repair of DNA Review of DNA Structure 1. Model developed by Watson and Crick, Rosalind Franklin, and Erwin Chargaff 2. DNA is a double helix with a 2 nm diameter 3. The two helices of the double helix are composed of deoxyribose sugars alternating with phosphates covalently bonded by phosphodiester bonds 4. The two helices are anti-parallel or have opposite polarity. Each helix has a 5’ end (phosphate) and a 3’ end (-OH). 5. The two helices are held together by Hydrogen bonds of the two nitrogen bases. 6. The nitrogen bases are either purines with 2 C-N rings (Adenine and Guanine) or pyrimidines with a single C-N ring (Thymine and Cytosine) 7. In the double helix a purine nitrogen base pairs with a pyrimidine nitrogen base via Hydrogen bonds. 8. Because of proper Hydrogen bonding requirements: denine base pairs with Thymine -- 2 Hydrogen bonds uanine base pairs with Cytosine -- 3 Hydrogen bonds...
