. The bases on opposite strands of DNA are said to be _________ to each other, which means the bases fit together specifically by hydrogen bonding to one another.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret and complete the following statement.

‘The bases present in DNA are − to each other, which indicates bases fix with each other’.

Concept Introduction:

Polynucleic acid such as DNA or RNA produced from polymerization of these nucleotide joined to each other. The nitrogenous bases may be adenine, guanine, cytosine or thymine. There are two terminal of polynucleic acid as two strands are running complementary to each other. One strand is moving from 5’ to 3’ while another is moving from 3‘ to 5’.

Nucleotide is made of nitrogenous base attached with pentose sugar along with phosphoric acid which get esterified while nucleoside only contains nitrogenous base attached with pentose sugar.

Explanation

In complementary strand of Dna, adenine always complementary to thymine and bonded with double bond while cytosine always complementary to guanine and...
