. In a strand of normal DNA, the base ________ is always found paired with the base adenine, whereas _________ is always found paired with cytosine.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret and complete the following statement.

‘In DNA, the base − is bonded with adenine while − is bonded to cytosine’.

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.

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

Chargaff rule states that number of guanine present in a polynucleic acid must be equivalent to number of cytosine present while number of adenine present in a polynucleic acid must be equivalent to number of thymine present...
