BiologyExchange.co.uk Shared Resource BiologyExchange.co.uk Shared Resource Presentation Transcript

  • Recap Nucleic acids
  • Chromosomes
    • A chromosome consists of:-
      • DNA
      • Coiled around protein balls
  •  
  • DNA is a polymer
    • The monomer is a nucleotide
  • 4 different bases
  • Nucleotides join together
    • To form a chain
    • Sugar to phosphate to sugar to phosphate….
    • Joined by strong covalent bonds
    • The chain twists to form a helix
  • Bases pair
    • Bases on one strand of DNA pair with complementary bases on the other strand. A with T and C with G
    • Two chains join together to form a double helix
  •  
  •  
  • RNA
    • We look at two forms:-
      • Messenger RNA – mRNA
      • Transfer RNA – tRNA
  • Differences between DNA and RNA
    • The sugar in DNA is deoxyribose
    • The sugar in RNA is ribose
  • Differences between DNA and RNA
    • The nitrogenous bases in DNA are Cytosine; Guanine; Adenine; Thymine
    • The nitrogenous bases in RNA are Cytosine; Guanine; Adenine; Uracil
  • Differences between DNA and RNA Shorter; Present in nucleus and cytoplasm; Short term; Some bases paired and some unpaired Longer; Only found in the nucleus; Long lasting; Many bases are paired RNA DNA
  • mRNA
    • Single strand of nucleotides with no base pairing
  • tRNA
    • Single strand that is twisted back on itself so that some areas have paired bases
  • tRNA
  •  
  • tRNA ‘clover leaf’ shape ; (allow reference to loop / folded structure) tRNA standard length ; tRNA has an amino acid binding site ; tRNA has anticodon available / three exposed bases ; tRNA has hydrogen bonds (between base pairs) ;
