1. Theta model-circular DNA-bacteria, mitochondria
2. Sigma model-rolling circle model: phage lambda circular dsDNA-nick, unwheel, produce linear DNA-concatamer, catenated DNA, phage M13 circular ssDNA --> circular dsDNA--> linear ssDNA-->circular ssDNA
3. Y-shaped model-phage T7 linear dsDNA, higher organisms- chromosome

telomerase - terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase - repeat CCCTAA---> inverted to complementary
found in egg and sperm only
so shorten of chromosome each replication 50-60 times --.senescence

Structure and function of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA)
Structure and behavior of DNA and RNA (Ribonucleic acid)
Chemical composition
Nucleotide=Base+Sugar+Phosphate group

Denature (melting)and renature(association, annealing)
melting temperature (Tm) -temperature that have equal ssDNA and dsDNA
pHm-pH that have equal ssDNA and dsDNA
urea and formamide-decrease Tm
monovalent or divalent cation concentration-increase Tm
G+C/A+T increase Tm. pHm
GC increase 1%, Tm increase 0.4 degree
renaturation between different species of nucleic acid-hybridization: solution, filter
Other qualities of DNA
1. UV absorption: absorbance (A) or optical density (OD) peak at 260
OD of 1 mg/ml of DNA, RNAA, oligonucleotide = 20, 25, 30
OD increase with temperature (ssDNA-> increase OD)
2. Acid-base:stable at pH 4-5, depurination at pH <3, base donot react with DNA, but destroy phosphodiester bond of RNA (react at OH)
velocity sedimentation: generate gradient column of sucrose or potassium citrate-add DNA mixture-centrifuge-highMW down, low MW up
equilibrium sedimentation:CS-->spin down centrifuge-->diffusion until equilibrium-add Mixture buoncy of DNA=Cs, protein-top, RNA-bottom
