e.g., AMP is a ribonucleotide, dAMP is a deoxyribonucleotide In DNA and RNA, nucleotides are held together by phosphodiester bonds. Higher Order RNA Structure Stem-loops are common elements of secondary RNA structure. Stems are doublestranded regions of RNA that are A-form helices. They usually follow Watson-Crick base pairing rules (U replaces T), but other pairs occur (G U is common). (DNA is typically a Bform helix). Stem loop Secondary structure diagram Cr.LSU rRNA intron Tertiary structure diagram Tetrahymena rRNA intron What chemical forces hold (or drive) the DNA strands together? (also applies to double-stranded regions of RNA) 1. Hydrogen bonds between bases Also important that the purinepyrimidine base pairs are of similar size.

2. DNA strands also held together by base stacking: Van der Waals interactions between successive (or neighbor) base-pairs Evidence: Compounds that interfere with Hydrogen bonds (urea, formamide) dont separate strands by themselves, still requires heat 3. Double-stranded helix structure also promoted by having phosphates on outside, interact with H 2O and counter ions (K+, Mg2+, etc.) Double-stranded (DS) DNA statistics (B-form) 1. 2. 3. 4. Helix is right handed 10 base-pairs/turn 3.4 nm (34 angstroms)/turn Helix has a major groove and a minor groove. 3 Ways of Depicting DNA Structure A.

DNA. When DNA melts, the 2 strands come apart, and its absorbance in the UV region increases. Tm= temp. at which 50% of DNA is melted. Re-Annealing or Hybridization Works with: DNA - DNA DNA - RNA RNA - RNA Basis of many techniques in molecular biology. Base composition (G-C content) determines melting temperature: varies among organisms G-C content also determines density of DNA (g/cc) Separation of nuclear (nuc) and mitochondrial (mt) DNA on a CsCl-ethidium bromide gradient visualized with longwave UV light.
