The dna double helix is? A puzzle to geneticists, composed of 2 chromosomes, composed of adenine and and guanine, composed of adenine and thymine, made of 2 polynucleotide strands?
During replication____________ are the enzymes responsible for joining the nucletides of a new dna strand? Dna helicase, dna ligase, DNases, dna polymerase, dna gyrase
The production of sterile male ligers is an example of? Sympatrick speciaion, founder effect, prre zygotic barrier, neutral evolution, post zygotic barrier
Rna that is translated into a polypeptide is ________ rna? Nuclear, ribosomal, nucleolar, transfer, or messenger
Dna codon AgT codes for an amino acid carried by a tRNA with the anticodon_________? UCA, TCU, AGU, TCA, AGT
What is the smallest number of nucleotides that must be added or subtracted to change the triplet grouping of the genetic message? 1,2,3,4,5
Plant viruses______ ? often use rna rather than dna as gentic material ,benefit plants rather than causing disease, casue easily curable disease, primarily target health plants, do not exist
Introns are_________? Noncoding dna sequences, expressed dna sequences dna sequences to which silencers bond dna sequences to which activators bond the product of rna splicing
What is a component of the fossil record? Molecular sequences, bones of extinct whales, similarity of forelimbs of sharks and whales, similarity of forelimbs of cats and bats, distribution of murid rodents in austrailia and asia
