    1.1 Structure
    of DNA
    define DNA - Its a chemical that makes up genes and in turn forms chromosomes. The chemicals name is Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid.
    • describe the structure of a nucleotide - A nucleotide is the essential unit that makes up DNA. Each nucleotide has three parts 1- Phosphate, 2. the sugar (deoxyribose), 3. the base.
    ...
    Completed in the nots above
    The nucleotide sequence makes a specific gene on the chromosomes . The sequence codes for a protein. We can say the sequence of nucleotides that form a gene stores information.
    1.3 DNA and RNA1.3 DNA and RNA
    • compare the nucleic acids DNA and RNA
    DNA is made of of nucleotides joined together to make a double helix. - nucleotide consists of Phosphate , sugar and a BASE. (A -T, C-G)
    RNA - is made of nucleotides forming a thin strand where their base order depends on the base order of the DNA it is coding from ( this is TRANSCRIPTION) . The nucleotide consists of Phosphate, sugar and BASES (C - G, A - U) Uracil replaces Thymine in RNA. .
    mRNA - transcription - this process happens in the nucleus when the DNA unzips allowing the mRNA to code against the unzipped portion of DNA. The mRNA then leaves the Nucleus and sits on the ribosome in the cytoplasm. Here tiny molecules of tRNA bring an amino acid and match their bases against the mRNA. This is the translation process. As the tRNA code against the mRNA the amino acids start to combine to make a long chain of their own. They are forming proteins. see p9 of text The proteins formed could be enzymes for digestion or hormones or structures that make up our organs.
    1.4 Mitosis1.4 Mitosis
    • describe the purpose of mitosis and cytokinesis
    The purpose of mitosis is to relocate the DNA (chromosomes) with in a cell and correctly send the chromosomes to each of the daughter cells created in the process. This means one cell has divided to become 2 cells that will then grow because they have the identical genetic make up as their parent cell.

    • distinguish between diploid and haploid
    Diploid is the total number of chromosomes in a cell. For example human cells diploid number is 46.
    Haploid is the number of chromosomes in a sex cell (egg or sperm) in humans this is 23.

    • explain how and why a cell undergoes apoptosis.
    When cells get too old to divide - or have significant errors they under go apoptosis - this means they die. Its been calculated for humans (with no other diseases) their cells will under go enough mitotic divisions for them to reach the age of approx 115 years old before total apoptosis

    3. Cytosine
    4. Guanine
    A strand of chromosome is made of DNA bases - There are 4 DNA bases
    Cyrosine = C
    Guanine = G
    Adenine = A
    Thymine = T

    The DNA chain is held together by strong bonds (covalent bonds) between the sugar and phosphate of adjacent nucleotides - this forms the backbone of the chain. The Bases are joined to their complimentary base by Hydrogen Bonds- Because of the physical and chemical structure of these bases only
    Adenine can combine with Thymine
    ...
    • explain how complementary base pairs join
    • explain the importance of DNA being able to make copies of itself and carry information.
