5. j. i. 6. 6. 37 CELLS—Structure and Function DNA Replication and Cell Division Description Because DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is THE genetic material, it has to be replicated in preparation for normal cell division so that a copy of it can be placed in each new daughter cell (see p. 36). This replication occurs during the S phase of the cell cycle. Structurally, DNA is a complex macromolecule located in the cell nucleus in a double helix form resembling an extremely tall spiral staircase. To discuss its structure, we will simplify it.

2. A hypertonic solution (hyper = more, greater) has a greater concentration of impermeable solutes than the other solution. A cell placed in this solution will shrink (crenate) because of water leaving the cell. 3. A hypotonic (hypo = less) solution has a lesser concentration of impermeable solutes than the other solution. A cell placed in this solution will swell and possibly burst (lyse) because of water rushing into the cell. By convention, biologists typically use these terms to describe the extracellular solution though they technically can be used to describe either intracellular or extracellular solutions as a relative comparison.

Sometimes it is slightly more dilute and other times it is more concentrated. Three different terms describe all the possibilities. 1. The body’s extracellular solutions normally are isotonic (iso ‫ ס‬equal) solutions, which have the same concentration of impermeable solutes as the other solution. This is a stable state for body cells. A cell in this solution already has achieved dynamic equilibrium, so the net movement of water in and out of the cell is zero. 2. A hypertonic solution (hyper = more, greater) has a greater concentration of impermeable solutes than the other solution.
