Hershey and Chase performed experiments with bacteria and the viruses that replicate within them. Bacterial viruses are composed primarily of protein and DNA. The experimental results showed that DNA alone directs the replication of new viruses; that is, DNA contains the biochemical information for the synthesis of both the viral protein and the viral DNA. The results obtained by Hershey and Chase confirmed that DNA is the hereditary material and stimulated additional interest in the study of molecular genetics.

In the early 1950s, scientists observed that one strand of the molecule could serve as a template for synthesis of the opposite strand. This was later proven correct. m variable sequence referring to the occurrence of nitrogenous bases in random order in the DNA molecule. ~1~ CHAPTERTWO deoxypentose a five-carbon carbohydrate missing one oxygen atom. Nobel Prize an annual prize offered in six categories by the countries of Scandinavia; honors achievements in Physiology or Medicine, Chemistry, Physics, Literature, Peace, and Economics.

Furthermore, each mutation could be explained as damage inflicted on a cellular catalyst, known as an enzyme. Enzymes are protein molecules that bring about virtually all the chemical reactions in a cell. It appeared that each time a mutation developed in the cell, the ability to synthesize an important growth substance was lost, and the loss could be traced to an enzyme defect. Thus, two concepts emerged: mutations are traceable to the hereditary aspects of the cell (and thus, to its genes), and DNA within genes has something to do with the production of key enzymes.
