Although DNA is often found as a single-stranded polynucleotide, it assumes its most stable form when double stranded. Double-stranded DNA consists of two polynucleotide’s that are arranged such that the nitrogenous bases within one polynucleotide are attached to the nitrogenous bases within another polynucleotide by way of special chemical bonds called hydrogen bonds. This base-to-base bonding is not random; rather, each A in one strand always pairs with a T in the other strand, and each C always pairs with a G. The double-stranded DNA that results from this pattern of bonding looks much like a ladder with sugar-phosphate side supports and base-pair rungs.

DNA is associated with histone proteins to form chromatin like that found in nucleus.
