I Review
DNA's primary structure is made up of just four different bases, and its secondary structure is regular and highly
stable.
Part A
How can a molecule with these characteristics hold the information required to build and maintain a cell?
The sequence of bases codes the information needed to create proteins.
O
A protein coded for in DNA has much more complex primary and secondary structures, allowing it to
hold much more information.
The information is first transcribed, then translated
The messenger RNA produced from DNA has much more complex secondary structures, allowing
mRNA to hold much more information
