Re: Does complementary DNA include only coding sequences ?

Right - another technique, like RACE, is usually needed to extend the sequence across UTRs. If the primers are designed against genomic sequence, they can include UTR sequence, but are unlikely to capture the entire UTRs.

Cell wall extension- shearing units??

... i would still like to know). Here's the section of text; "Wall extension commonly exhibits a yield threshold stress, below which walls do not extend. Although its molecular nature is not well understood, one way to think about the yield threshold is to consider that it depends on the size ...
