Re: Mitochondrial inheritance

mitochondrial main origin is from the endosymbiotic theory. you should go through this first. From this theory it has been said that mitochondria used to be a separate living entity, but after being engulfed by a cell as endosymbionts. Now according to your question of Mitochondrial inheritance, the...

Re: How to isolate specific dna fragment?

you have to use primers for the specific sequence required in PCR. Then for the separation of your required fragment form the bulk of fragments you have to go for electrophoresis, i.e. purification.

Re:

There are two things: K and NK cells, the first one is a killing cell and the second one - a natural killing cell. And cytotoxic cells are recognized as TC cells once they become activated and are generally classified as having a pre-defined cytotoxic role within the immune system. +1 kristine, u h...
