Micrococcal nuclease (MNase) is a non-specific double-strand endonuclease that cleaves preferentially in regions lacking DNA binding proteins. Thus, MNase cleaves between the nucleosomes. After cleavage, the DNA is deproteinized and run on a gel. A ladder corresponding to nucleosome repeats is observed.

- Gene name - Zeste-white 10. Synonyms - . Cytological map position - 3A6-3A7 . Function - signaling. Keywords - a subunit of the RZZ complex located at the kinetochores of chromosomes - the RZZ complex plays an essential role in the spindle assembly checkpoint that ensures proper connections between chromosomes and the mitotic spindle. - found on the Golgi stacks and endoplasmic reticulum where ...
- Deoxyribonucleic acid, the genetic material that carries information about an organism and is passed from parent to offspring 4. Organic molecules in the cytoplasm that carries an amino acid to the ribosome and adds it to the growing protein chain
A doubled rod of condensed chromatin; contains DNA that carries genetic information. cytokinesis The final stage of the cell cycle, in which the cell's cytoplasm divides, distributing the organelles into each of the two new cells.
- Interphasic chromosome is a structure in the nucleus which contains DNA that is in a period of cell cycle when the cell is not dividing. This structure, capable of transmitting genetic information, contains RNA and histones associated with DNA and during this phase it is under its least condensed state, looking diffused throughout the nucleus ...
Long, stringy aggregate of genes that carry heredity information and are formed from condensed chromatin. 46. phase of mitosis in which the chromosomes begin to pull to opposite poles of the cell: 47. The semi-fluid component of a cell's cytoplasm. 48. Circular loop of DNA in prokaryotes. Eukaryotic DNA is organized into chromosomes. 54.
- Chromatin reticulum or chromonemata is the chromatin seen as network under microscope during interphase or prophase. Gene is a segment of DNA coding for a functional polypeptide, ribozyme or RNAs. Each chromosome contains many genes. We use the term chromosome to denote the most condensed form of chromatin that is metaphase chromosome.
A double rod of condensed chromatin, contains DNA that carries genetic information: 26. An organism's physical appearance: 27. The likelihood that a particular event will occur: 29. The regular sequence of growth and division that cells undergo: 31. The passing of traits from parent to offspring: 32. All of the DNA in one cell of an organism: 33.
- rod-shaped cellular structure made of condensed chromatin; contains DNA, which carries the genetic information that controls inherited characteristics such as eye color and blood type. chromosomes in a nucleic-acid chain, a subunit that consists of a sugar, a phosphate, and a base
WHAT IS CHROMOSOME? A chromosome is a structure inside the nucleus that organizes and pack the double-stranded helical DNA of a cell. Genetic information is mostly stored in the DNA but plasmids of prokaryotes and episomes of eukaryotes also contain extra-chromosomal DNA. The DNA of a bacterium is organized into circular single-stranded DNA.
- What is chromatin, heterochromatin and euchromatin? The human genome contains over 3 billion base pairs or nucleotides. These nucleotides, which are arranged in a linear sequence along DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), encode every protein and genetic trait in the human body. This information is contained in approximately 20,000 genes which, surprisingly, represent only a
Each eukaryotic chromosome in G0 or G1 contains one linear molecule of double-stranded DNA. Cells in interphase contain two types of chromatin: euchromatin (more opened and available for gene expression) and heterochromatin (much more highly con- densed and associated with areas of the chromosomes that are not expressed.) (Figure I-1-11).
- DNA contains the genetic information that allows all modern living things to function, grow and reproduce. However, it is unclear how long in the 4-billion-year history of life DNA has performed this function, as it has been proposed that the earliest forms of life may have used RNA as their genetic material.
>> A very important concept that we're gonna discuss in the upcoming lectures is the concept of transcription factors. Transcription factors are proteins that kind of bind to the DNA directly, and regulate the expression of genes. >> In the nucleus, DNA is condensed into a DNA-protein complex called chromatin.
