A reference to the base composition of double-stranded DNA. DNA from different sources has different ratios of the A-to-T and G-to-C base pairs, e.g. DNAs isolated from organisms that live in hot springs have a higher GC content, which takes advantage of the increased thermal stability of the GC base pair. (see also Chargaff's rule)

A right-handed helix; a variant of the dominant B-form of DNA in solution, in which the base pairs are tilted somewhat out of the perpendicular orientation to the axis of the helix. (see also Z-DNA)

(=atomic absorption)

Anomalously replicating consensus sequence. (see origin recognition complex (ORC))

(= atomic force microscopy (AFM))

(see antifreeze protein)

(see advanced glycation end product)

A position in a double-stranded DNA sequence that is missing an A or G base (apurinic) or a C or T base (apyrimidinic).
