      1. Nucleotide structure
        1. Bases in DNA:
          1. Adenine, Thymine, Guanine, Cytosine
          2. Bases in RNA:
            1. Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, uracil
            2. The three components are joined up by a condensation reaction
              1. Nucleotides joining up
                1. Two mononucleotides can join to form a di-nucleotide by a condensation reaction
                  1. between the OH group on carbon number 3 and the phosphate group attached to C5 of another
                    1. Lots of them = polynucleotide
                    2. The bond formed between nucleotides is a phosphodiester bond
                  2. DNA
                    1. DNA used to be considered to have too few components
                      1. DNA consists of four chemically similar nucleotides whereas proteins consist of twenty amino acids which are more chemically diverse
                      2. Watson and Crick, Wilkins and Franklin
                        1. Watson and Crick worked out the structure of DNA in 1953
                          1. Their findings were based on the work of Wilkins and Franklin
                            1. They used X-ray diffraction techniques to study the structure of DNA
                        2. Structure of DNA
                          1. The sugar in DNA (the pentose) is called deoxyribose
                            1. DNA is doubled stranded
                              1. Made up of two polynucleotide strands
                              2. The sugar and phosphate group are on the outside of the molecule and the bases in the centre
                                1. Or a sugar-phosphate "backbone"
                                2. Adenine pairs with Thymine with 2 hydrogen bonds
                                  1. Cytosine pairs with Guanine with 3 hydrogen bonds
                                  2. The two strands run in opposite directions to each other
                                    1. Anti-parallel

                                        1. It can be passed on accurately from one generation to the next
                                        2. DNA is a very large molecule
                                          1. It can hold a lot of information
                                          2. DNA is a coiled molecule
                                            1. This makes it compact

                                                          1. This found out whether replication was conservative or semi conservative
                                                            1. They used bacteria with two different isotopes of nitrogen, 14N and 15N (15N being heavier)
                                                              1. The DNA containing 15N would be heavier than the DNA containing 14N
