Study Guide – Nucleic Acids   Be able to draw the parts of a nucleoside and nucleoRde, recognize the purine and pyrimidine bases and the way that they can form hydrogen bonds. You don't have to draw the base structures.   Explain the mechanism of base pairing.   Explain the numbering system of carbons on the ribose or deoxyribose to show the 5’ and 3' (i.e. 5 prime and 3 prime) parts of a nucleoRde or nucleic acid, how the template is read and the new strand synthesized.   DisRnguish the 3' and 5' ends of a DNA molecule, and be able to explain the reasoning behind this polarity.   Explain how nucleoside triphosphates come together to form nucleic acids, how nucleic acids interact and form a DNA double helix.   Be able to explain the role of hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interacRons in stabilizaRon of DNA and RNA structure.   Contrast the three differences between DNA and RNA (sugar/bases).   Explain with diagrams what is meant by secondary structure in DNA and in RNA. Recommended Readings in the textbook: Chapter 2: pages 56- 58, especially panel 2- 6 Chapter 5: pages 171 – 178 (3rd ed.); pages 169- 177 (2nd ed.)
