Unit 1 Chapter 5 The functions of DNA

DNA is enclosed in the nuclei of...
Eukaryotic cells
1 of 8
DNA is loose in the cytoplasm of...
Prokaryotes
2 of 8
Small molecules of DNA occur in...
chloroplasts and mitochondria
3 of 8
Replication
DNA comprises of two complimentary strands. If two stands of a double helix are separated, two identical double helices can be formed, as each parent strand acts as a template for the synthesis of a new complimentary strand
4 of 8
Protein Synthesis
The sequences of bases represents the information carried in DNA and determines the sequence of amino acids in proteins
5 of 8
Conservative replication
Parental double helix remains intact, i.e. is conserved and a whole new double helix is madeSemi0
6 of 8
Semi-conservative replication
Parental double helix separates into two stands, each of which acts as a template for synthesis of a new strand
7 of 8
Dispersive replication
Two new double helices contain fragments from both strands of the parental double helix
