Nucleic acids

  1. 1. Nucleic Acids <ul><li>Nucleic Acids </li></ul><ul><li>Structures of Nucleic Acids </li></ul><ul><li>DNA Replication </li></ul><ul><li>RNA and Transcription </li></ul>
  2. 2. Nucleotides <ul><li>Nucleic acids consist of nucleotides that have a sugar, nitrogen base, and phosphate </li></ul><ul><li>nucleoside </li></ul>Sugar Base PO 4
  3. 3. Nitrogen-Containing Bases
  4. 4. Sugars
  5. 5. Nucleosides in DNA <ul><li>Base Sugar Nucleoside </li></ul><ul><li>Adenine (A) Deoxyribose Adenosine </li></ul><ul><li>Guanine (G) Deoxyribose Guanosine </li></ul><ul><li>Cytosine (C) Deoxyribose Cytidine </li></ul><ul><li>Thymine (T) Deoxyribose Thymidine </li></ul>
  6. 6. Nucleosides in RNA <ul><li>Base Sugar Nucleoside </li></ul><ul><li>Adenine (A) ribose Adenosine </li></ul><ul><li>Guanine (G) ribose Guanosine </li></ul><ul><li>Cytosine (C) ribose Cytidine </li></ul><ul><li>Uracil (U) ribose Uridine </li></ul>
  7. 7. Example of a Nucleotide
  8. 8. Nucleotides in DNA and RNA <ul><li>DNA </li></ul><ul><li>dAMP Deoxyadenosine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>dGMP Deoxyguanosine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>dCMP Deoxycytidine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>dTMP Deoxythymidine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>RNA </li></ul><ul><li>AMP adenosine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>GMP guanosine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>CMP cytidine monophosphate </li></ul><ul><li>UMP uridine monophosphate </li></ul>
  9. 9. Structure of Nucleic Acids <ul><li>Polymers of four nucleotides </li></ul><ul><li>Linked by alternating sugar-phosphate bonds </li></ul><ul><li>RNA: ribose and A, G, C, U </li></ul><ul><li>DNA: deoxyribose and A,G,C,T </li></ul><ul><li>nucleotide nucleotide nucleotide nucleotide </li></ul>P sugar base P sugar base P sugar base P sugar base
  10. 10. Nucleic Acid Structure <ul><li>3,5-phosphodiester bond </li></ul>3 5
  11. 11. Double Helix of DNA <ul><li>DNA contains two strands of nucleotides </li></ul><ul><li>H bonds hold the two strands in a double-helix structure </li></ul><ul><li>A helix structure is like a spiral stair case </li></ul><ul><li>Bases are always paired as A–T and G-C </li></ul><ul><li>Thus the bases along one strand complement the bases along the other </li></ul>
  12. 12. Complementary Base Pairs <ul><ul><li>Two H bonds for A-T </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Three H bonds for G-C </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Double Helix of DNA
  14. 14. Learning Check NA1 <ul><li>Write the complementary base sequence for the matching strand in the following DNA section: </li></ul><ul><li>-A-G-T-C-C-A-A-T-G-C- </li></ul><ul><li> • • • • • • • • • • </li></ul><ul><li> • • • • • • • • • • </li></ul>
  15. 15. Solution NA1 <ul><li>Write the complementary base sequence for the matching strand in the following DNA section: </li></ul><ul><li>-A-G-T-C-C-A-A-T-G-C- </li></ul><ul><li> • • • • • • • • • • </li></ul><ul><li> • • • • • • • • • • </li></ul><ul><li>-T-C-A-G-G-T-T-A-C-G- </li></ul>
  16. 16. DNA Replication <ul><li>DNA in the chromosomes replicates itself every cell division </li></ul><ul><li>Maintains correct genetic information </li></ul><ul><li>Two strands of DNA unwind </li></ul><ul><li>Each strand acts like a template </li></ul><ul><li>New bases pair with their complementary base </li></ul><ul><li>Two double helixes form that are copies of original DNA </li></ul>
  17. 17. DNA Unwinds <ul><ul><ul><li>G- -C </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A- -T </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>C- + -G </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>T- -A </li></ul></ul></ul>G-C A-T C-G T-A
  18. 18. DNA Copied with Base Pairs <ul><ul><ul><li>Two copies of original DNA strand </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>G-C G-C </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A-T A-T </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>C-G + C-G </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>T-A G-A </li></ul></ul></ul>
