Re: Chromatin

... of paternal origin, plus the maternally-contributed mitochondrial chromosome (which I'll ignore for the rest of this post). Counting chromosomal centromeres, there are 46 centromeres total. After replication there are still 46 centromeres, but the mass of DNA and number of chromatids have doubled ...

Centromeres in a resting nucleus

Please take a look at this statement: Centromeres appear as constitutive heterochromatin in a resting nucleus. Is that true? Does that mean that the centromere sequences have no function in non-dividing cells? So, the centromeres must have sequences ...

tricky F1 cross with specific allele crossover

... carrying the maternal a allele segregated with the paternal B allele. In this meiosis, there was no crossing over between genes A or B and their centromeres. The gametes resulting from this meiosis are expected to be? Ok so what i did as seen in the picture is cross two heterozygotes and during ...

no repeat sequences in exons of genes?

... about were microsatellites (dispersed everywhere which are short sequences), dna transposons such as SINES and LINES, alpha satellite repeats in centromeres, telomerase repeats at the end of chromosomes, and some others. I know that sometimes LINES can use reverse transcriptase to insert a mRNA ...
