hi,
which formula is corecT???
A+T+G+C=100% OR A+T=G+C
which formula is corecT???
A+T+G+C=100% OR A+T=G+C

hi,

A+T+G+C=100% OR A+T=G+C
A+T+G+C=100% IS correct
A=T G=C so second cannot b correct
A+T=G+C
so i think both are correct
1.Chargaffs Rules
1. Base composition of DNA differs from species to species
2. In each species, however, the # of adenine (a) equals the # of thymine (T).
Also # of G = # of C
3. sum of purines (A+G) = sum of pyrimidines (T+C)
2. Complementary Base Pairing
-purines = pyrimidines Total purines [A]+[G] = Total pyrimidines [C]+[T]
-concentration of adenine and thymine are equal as are guanine and cytosine.
the ratio of A+T:C+G does not necessarily equal one (note this point)
Therefore, A pairs with T and C pairs with G in DNA
the thymine - adenine pair interacts through two hydrogen bonds represented as (T=A) and that the cytosine-guanine pair interacts through three hydrogen bonds represented as (C=G).
therefore,A+T=C+G is incorrect
Hope this helps,
thnks all.......
For eg,
a=10, t=40, g=40 and c=??? on the complimentary strand of Dna
c=10
c=50
c=40
A+G=T+C
C=10.
This is funny either way would be 10.
correct me if i wrong
