Summary Introduction

To determine: The complementary strand for the DNA sequence (P-AGGCTCG-OH) and label the direction of synthesis of a new strand and the number of double bonds in the double strand of DNA.

Introduction: Deoxyribonucleic acid is the genetic material. It is composed of two chains that coil around one another forming a double helix.  The two strands are composed of a nitrogenous base, a sugar molecule, and a phosphate molecule collectively called as a nucleotide.

### Explanation of Solution

Pictorial representation: Fig.1 represents the two complementary strands of DNA. Adenine pairs with thymine and cytosine pairs with guanine. The arrow represents the direction of the new strand synthesis.

Fig.1 The two complementary strands of DNA.

Watson and Crick proposed the double helical structure of DNA. The two strands are complementary to each other and the nitrogenous bases pair with each other on the complementary strands with hydrogen bonds— adenine pairs with thymine and cytosine pairs with guanine. The new complementary strand is always synthesized in the 5’ to 3’ direction.

The DNA strand given is P-AGGCTCG-OH...
