Abstract This appendix is a compilation of information from Current Protocols in Molecular Biology (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.) and provides information about the major nucleoside/nucleotide constituents and structures for A-, B-, and Z-DNA. Tables and figures provide (1) experimentally useful properties of the nucleoside/nucleotide building blocks; (2) chemical structures of the nucleosides; (3) aspects of nucleotide stereochemistry that are important to an understanding of base pairing and secondary structure; (4) alternative (non-Watson-Crick) base pairings; and (5) the three best characterized helix structures for DNA: A-, B-, and Z-DNA.
