Problem: One of the major stabilizing forces of the double stranded DNA helix comes from hydrogen bonding. Where do you see this type of bonding in the DNA? Name one difference between DNA and RNA?

FREE Expert Solution

The hydrogen bonds that stabilizes the double stranded DNA helix occurs between two nucleotide bases which makes the base pair of the double stranded DNA. The adenine (A) and thiamine (T) make 2 hydrogen bond pairs while guanine (G) and cytosine (C) make 3 hydrogen bonds.
