Clockwise, i.e. just like a standard wood or engineering screw-thread.

The nature of DNA does not change according to which hemisphere the organism is in. The most common type of DNA is B-DNA, which is right-handed (rotates clockwise). A-DNA is also right-handed (rotates clockwise). Z-DNA is left-handed (rotates counter-clockwise).

The whole DNA strand is a double helix.

it is complicated but we recall the nucleus is a small spherical and helix is in dna. dna helix is actually made of reapeating units called nucleotides.

In the DNA. The term "double helix" refers to the structure of DNA.

The double helix IS DNA - its what the spiral structure of the DNA is called. :) hope it helped

In almost all cases, DNA is found has a double-helix.It's only some bacterial species that have single-helix DNA.

It is how the DNA is constructed.

User Avatar

no, it is only DNA that has a double helix. RNA's never have a double helix. RNA's are single helix structures.

DNA is double helix, rna is one helix. DNA has a thymine rna has uracil. Rna has onxygen, DNA does not.

DNA is double Helix But A Gene is a part of that double helix.

It is ideal for the replication of DNA, The double helix is also formed by antiparallel strands of DNA.

User Avatar

Both DNA and RNA can exist in the double helix form, but only DNA is completely stable as a double helix. The double helix RNA is usually only short "hairpin" sections folding back on itself, never the long essentially linear form of double helix DNA.

DNA has a shape of a double helix

the third step in dna replication is when 2 dna double helix form together to form other dna double helix.

The sugar-phosphate supporting structure of the DNA double helix is called the backbone. This is why the DNA is commonly referred to as a double helix.

DNA helix uncoils the DNA for transcription to occur.

The function of the double helix in normal DNA (B-Dna) is easy attachment of histosomes for folding of the DNA, and thus important in the creation of chromatids.

DNA forms a double-helix shape - two strands twisting together.
