It is required for the synthesis of the nucleotide thymidylate (dTMP). Although bacteria can synthesize folic acid, eukaryotes must obtain folate from the diet. Dietary sources of folate include leafy green vegetables (eg, spinach and turnip greens), citrus fruits, and legumes. Many breakfast cereals, breads, and other grain products are fortified with folate. DNA: Two large molecules composed of deoxynucleotides attached by hydrogen bonds in a helical, antiparallel relationship. NUCLEOSIDES: Nitrogenous base plus a sugar (bases in DNA are adenine [A], thymine [T], cytosine [C], and guanine [G]; bases in RNA are A, C, G, but uracil [U] instead of T; sugar moiety in DNA is deoxyribose, and in RNA is ribose).

Transcription is a complex process involving an enzyme RNA polymerase and several transcription factors. The DNA strand that directs RNA synthesis via complementary base pairing is called the template. RNA synthesis is always unidirectional from 5 (phosphate) to 3 (hydroxyl). One can organize transcription in a stepwise fashion: 1. Binding of RNA polymerase to the DNA 2. Formation of the transcription bubble (separation of the DNA strands) 3. Addition of the first RNA residue 4. indd 47 7/25/14 5:47 PM 48 CASE FILES: Biochemistry Figure 5-1.
