Humans Natural Habitat/Optimal Environment

... you better suited to warmer temperatures, but that isn't to say that your interior metabolism would be happiest here. Though there is a narrow band of temperatures/humidities etc. that humans can survive in, within those limits there are a degree of flexibility. There is a reason you can sweat, ...

Why does 28S rRNA appear as 4000 nt on a bioanalyzer

... quickly afterwards? (It's rRNA from HeLa cells, and I found an example on the internet showing Raji cells with a 28S/18S ratio of 2,7 and a 28S band size of 3900/4000 nt, so I figured the 28S rRNA would still be intact.) I can't find any explanation for this on the internet, so I hope someone ...
