If the sequence of one strand of DNA is written as follows:

5*'*-ATGCATGCATGCATGCATGCATGCATGC-3*'*

Write down the sequence of complementary strand in 5*'*→3*' *direction

#### Solution

The DNA strands are complementary to each other with respect to base sequence. Hence, if the sequence of one strand of DNA is

5*'*- ATGCATGCATGCATGCATGCATGCATGC − 3’

Then, the sequence of complementary strand in 5' to 3' direction will be

3*'*- TACGTACGTACGTACGTACGTACGTACG − 5’

Therefore, the sequence of nucleotides on DNA polypeptide in 5' to 3' direction is

5*'*- GCATGCATGCATGCATGCATGCATGCAT− 3
