The sequence of one strand of DNA is customarily read from 5′ to 3′ atom of deoxyribose in the strand backbone, for example, 5′-ATTCTGCACCCGT-3′, where A is adenine, T is thymine, C is cytosine, and G is guanine. 13 Structure of DNA. ones on top of the other bases. These weak interactions can be disrupted by heat, as well as by acidic or basic conditions, or substances that destroy hydrogen bonds. If hydrogen bonds are destroyed, the DNA strands are separated. This separation is referred to as DNA melting.
